Yeah, it's tough being color blind. I used to wear these groovy grey corduroy pants, especially with my paisley shirt. I was out of sight! I wore them everywhere. Loved those pants. Then, my sweetheart made a comment about "those green pants". "I don't have any green pants" I replied. "Yes you do! Those MINT green corduroys!" Yep, never wore them again. Nuns and cans aren't much fun either.

LOL... reminds me of a friend who had two very large orange tabby cats and had a big stripe of orange fur along the bottom of her GREEN jacket, but didn't realize it cause it was the same shade grey as the jacket to her...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

My wife still won't let me live down the time I described our cat as being white, grey, and green. Apparently there are no green furry animals, with the obvious exception of Kermit the Frog.

I have issues with shades of colors. Such as, greens next to yellows, or purples, reds and blues next to each other. I will admit also that some times when people project their document on a screen here at work, I have difficulty seeing the difference between the red text and black text. Sometimes green lights do look white too.... Thinking I will try the colored lenses at night and see how well that works.

Sure, there are green furry animals, but they're usually QUITE DEAD...
