This is really bizarre. I mean, everybody's got a favourite colour right?
So why is it that people pay particular attention to mine?
I was walking down the hallway at work just now when a colleague stopped me, calling out "oh, I nearly didn't recognise you there, you weren't wearing orange."
And then he went on to say, "Hey, we were at a computer show the other day and got a bag for you." Upon which he reveals a super bright orange bag.
I mean, how often do you get acquaintences, not friends, thinking of you because they've just spotted your favourite colour?
How often do you get given things for no rhyme or reason, other than it was in your favourite colour? And often, these people aren't even close friends who would normally give gifts.
How often do you go out with people who would, without fail, point out something that was in your favourite colour?
How often do you have items around your office or house in your favourite colour, not only because you've bought them in the colour, but because anything you get given is in your favourite colour?
I'm not complaining about the gifts at all. In fact, my ego is over-inflated that people would even think of giving me things and in my favourite colour at that. And I'm definitely flattered that I'm at the forefront of people's thoughts.
It's just that I know other people who have favourite colours too. They just don't seem to get as much attention from it as I do.
Is it just because orange is just not a common favourite colour?
