Throw­ing shade

The Prince George Citizen - - Opinion -

I worked some years for an ap­pli­ance whole­saler at a time when we sold ma­jor ap­pli­ances to those wish­ing to “be in style” with colour fash­ions.

We saw ser­vice­able white ap­pli­ances junked in favour of “av­o­cado” ones.

Those were fol­lowed in sim­i­lar fashion by “har­vest gold” mod­els. Since then I have been out of touch with the mar­ket, but I see that chas­ing the lat­est shades has been par­o­died on the Cit­i­zen’s Satur­day “Home” page.

Where have I been all these years while this “easy-to-Iove” colour beck­oned?

I did not re­al­ize that yel­low, when ap­plied around the home, was “up­beat and wel­com­ing” with “peppy as­sertive­ness” that will “en­hance the mind and help cre­ativ­ity flow.”

The ar­ti­cle as­serts that “Yel­low’s the queen of ac­cent colours”.

I must get onto Ama­zon im­me­di­ately to or­der those “kinky yel­low” bath faucets from Vola.

James Lough­ery, Prince George
