Life is like a box of crayons.
Most people are the 8-color boxes,
but what you're really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back.
I fancy myself to be a 64-color box,
though I've got a few missing.
It's ok though, because I've got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal.
I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes.
Does anyone else have that problem?
I mean there are so many different colors of life,
of feeling, of articulation..
so when I meet someone who's an 8-color type..
I'm like, hey girl, magenta! and she's like, oh, you mean purple!
and she goes off on her purple thing, and I'm like, no - I want magenta!
