This is it! Day 16! I'm caught up! Today is also a Five Minute Friday day! Join the other FMF bloggers over at Kate's site! :) Today's word is "green".
“I get to write about ‘green’ today”, I announce. “You know what that reminds me of?” asks my husband, “that Bruce Willis movie – The Fifth Element. That was one of the ideas. ‘If it’s good it’s green.’ Green meant things were good.“ (Good or understood, if you take a look at some of the quotes.)
Hmm, “If it’s good it’s green”. There’s some food for thought! Is green good? We see green in Spring – fresh, new. That’s good! Beautiful even! Green can be very good! But then, where else do we see green? We pull out a loaf bread and see something green on it … mould!!! Mould is NOT good. But it’s green! You see someone’s success, or new possession. You want it for yourself. Your desire consumes you. Green with envy, it’s called. Another rgreen that’s not good! What about the Hulk? When he gets crazy angry, he turns big and green! Green is not so good. How about this one: “The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.” You all know what that means – we thing we want something different, what our neighbours have, but when we get it we see it doesn’t satisfy and we’re left disappointed. That’s another negative green. Methinks the “if it’s good it’s green” theory doesn’t pan out.
Unless it’s Spring. :)
