Don't know why...

I am wearing pink today. I never wear pink.

I am wearing a shirt that was given to me as a gift by someone who believes I should wear pink more daughter.

I have always believed that pink--even the shocking kind--is simply a poor excuse for red, which I wear often in many different shades.

Red is bold, decisive, deep. It's the color of roses, blood, ladybugs...

I need the boost that red gives me. Pink makes me feel insecure, vulnerable, elderly...

That being said, I love to see guys wearing pink. First, because I think it looks good on them, and second, because it flaunts gender biases and traditions in an innocuous way.

So I have no idea why I chose this shirt today. Tabitha told me it makes her want to hug me. I hope that's not contagious.


  1. "Pink makes me feel insecure, vulnerable, elderly..."

    That's so interesting. Pink frequently feels like a young color to me. I guess there are a lot of pink little old lady suits, though. And it almost always feels like a pretty color.

  2. I LOVE PINK. But red's cool too. I really like that shirt. And I love when guys wear pink, too.
