orange + me

I have decided that I love orange.
It's not my favorite--but I love it!

I love orange soda.
I love orange flowers.
I love my orange cell phone.
I love orange creamsicles and popsicles.
I love orange chicken at Panda.I love orange leaves.I love orange sunsets.I love to eat oranges (delish!).I love orange clothing and accessories (shirts, skirts, shoes, bags...).
I wish I could wear orange. Believe me, I can't, I've tried. It shows off some of my very best features such as my blotchy redness, my freckles, and my mustache. (haven't you heard that you can tell if a color is not for you whether or not it brings out your mustache?)

I'm not trying to complain--it's just a fact.
As much as I love orange, it doesn't love me.

Maybe someday I'll find just the right orange skirt or shoes or bag. Maybe then I'll quit with the orange obsession. But in the meantime here I am..... dreaming about being able to wear orange (and about eating an orange and drinking orange soda....and peach rings. not sure where the craving for peach rings came from, but now I'm off to the nearest convenience store to get me some.)

Geri your writing makes my heart sing. Have you thought of writing a book? Such talent!!

Told ya, you should have gone into English, Geri. Looks like Monica agrees. Kristi (Niederer) Scott would love that you love orange. She was the only one at girls camp wanting to paint her wooden heart necklace orange....her favorite color.

I just gave some slightly muted orange shoes to D.I. Sorry. I only had one outfit to wear them with and since I wasn't taking it with me, I decided to ditch the shoes too. They are probably too big for you, but if you hurried in to the Idaho Falls store, who knows, they just might work for you.

I guess I was a little surprised that Chinese Citrus Tea wasn't on your list. Oh, that's right. You didn't care for that so much. he he he (April 8th post for anyone that missed it.) Still LOL ...

geri said...

I am sporting a nice color of orange finger nail polish on my nails right now!! You need to see them so you can add it to your list. I was just told that orange wasn't for me either. I didn't take it to heart because I still have orange nails.
