Out of the blue

You know sometime things just aren’t what they seem to be. Mom had this lipstick which was green in colour. It looked green and was green. It looked creamy and smelt delicious. I must have been around 10 or less when I first discovered it. Every time I would open the dressing table drawer and have a look at the lipstick just to see it! I used to stare at it and always wonder why mom would ever want to wear green on her lips. Fashion disaster! I sometimes giggled just imagining Mom with green lipstick. The thing is I never had the guts to touch it until much later. The case was also green, you know the kinds which are groovy and round and the green and white would merge like waves. Much to my surprise I found out later that the colour of the lipstick was not even green when you apply it, It was pink! So even though it was green and looked green it was actually Pink when you apply it!! It still amazes me. 
Now what did you think this post was about!
