I want to participate in Alphabe-Thursday today because I haven't been able to in weeks. Frankly - I miss it. Since I'm not prepared for this week as much as usual, I'm just going to wing it.
When I think of blue, my first thought is that my two favorite people in the world have blue eyes. (My other favorite person in the world has green eyes with brown specs. Sorry daddy - green was last week.) One of my mom's eyes is kind of green so we've always joked that when someone compliments my eye color I always say it came from my mom's blue eye. It's amazing how many people out there now think my mom only has one eye.
I also think of that song Blue Christmas that Elvis sang where the backup singers did that wooo-ooo-oo-oo-oo thing on the word blue. Do you remember that? There was a girl I went to high school with who thought that was so funny. She's the one who ate ground coffee dry, right out of the tin.
When I feel blue, the Bear often buys me flowers because he's the BEST BEAR EVER. Stargazer lilies are my favorite, sans the messy orange bits. Orange was several weeks ago - maybe I'm making up for lost weeks with a rainbow.
I also think of this teething ring when I think of blue. It belonged to Phoenix but she didn't like it so Laura inherited it as a hand-me-down. I don't think she likes it much either. Maybe it's because she's not using it right.
Yes, I'm a terrible mommy. Look away.
I'm also blue that I've not thought of a reason for Steve the electrician to come back yet. Mmmm....Steve the electrician....
What? Where am I? Oh.
Okay, so that's all I've got for blue. I'm sure I'll think of an awe-inspiring blue post tomorrow. This will just have to do for now.
