Blue. No! Yellow! *
I grew up with my three cousins, a girl and two boys. Back then, when you bought stuff in a four-pack for kids, you almost always got one each of red, blue, yellow, and green. My oldest cousin, Amethyst, she got red. Anthony got blue, MacGyver got green, and I got yellow. When one of our aunts made each of us a quilt, she made them in our signature colors. When AA&M's mom got plaster handprint kits for the four of us to make, she painted them in our colors (and my mom still has a small yellow circle of plaster with my three-year-old handprint on it). To this day, I still claim yellow as my favorite color.
Now, I suppose it could be true that I like yellow so much because I sort of imprinted on it when I was little, like those birds that have to be fed via hand-puppet parents. But I've heard lots of stories about people who don't like the color that was picked for them as a kid, including my mom, who always wished she could have the blue things they picked out for her sister instead of the red they picked for her. Anyhow, it's not a good color for me to wear, and I try not to overdo its use since MB is not a fan, but I still love yellow. It's just...happy.
What about you guys? Do you have a favorite color? If you do, is there some reason for it, or just a chance thing?
