If you look through my closet and drawers you will not find ONE piece of orange clothing. It looks horrendous on me, sallows me right out. Blech! If I were a blonde, I'd look pretty darn awesome...but I'm not. Such an aversion I have for the color, I didn't even do the de rigueur Autumn post on the merits of the color. No WAY would I have even considered going to college at a Syracuse "Orange-men", Florida "Gators" or Miami "Hurricanes" and be forced to wear a color for four years that I would cringe every time I had to put on a sweatshirt. Not only would going to school at Miami or Gator-ville U have meant four years of looking sickly, but also 4 years of Florida humidity bad hair days! LOVE going to Disney, HATE that Goofy's hair looks better than mine. And as much as I love visiting my wine country in Napa and Sonoma, I thank the Fashion Gods when I step on a plane in San Fran to come home...otherwise I'd look stupid wearing basic neutrals in the ballpark stands when every other Giants fan is sporting an orange jersey.
Orange colored American Cheese? Sooooo unnatural. Cheese Curls? Not only are they orange but they SMELL bad too! (I am STILL living it down 20 years later after I told my neice her feet smelled like Cheese Curls). Orange colored spray tans? So many chemicals it can't possibly be healthier than the real thing. Looking back I can only think of ONE thing I liked that is orange.....TANG! Even tho I probably looked sicking just DRINKING it.
However, I might have to reconsider after seeing the sunrise in the 'hood the other morning. Never mind, I'm sure this is just red diluted by some yellow that looks so gorgeous!
"A Morning Swim"
If I didn't know better, I'd think some of the neighborhood kids dumped a load of Tang in the pond! Hmmm, do they even still sell Tang now that we don't go to the moon anymore?
