A long time ago, a boy liked me. I am tempted to say loved me but he never said it loud. Poor chap! One day, he decided to fast-track the romance. He came, broke the ice and said, 'You look nice in blue.' Instead of accepting the compliment graciously, I asked, 'Which blue - sky blue, navy blue, or turquoise blue?' Perplexed, he stared at me. 'All!' - was his one-word reply. We stood in silence for a minute or two and parted ways. I thought that was the end of his feeble attempt - one compliment, one-word answer, and one daring encounter. Well, I was wrong!
Next day he came holding an envelope. I was uneasy. It was a trend those days to propose with a greeting card. He was the most sincere boy in school. I never wanted to hurt his feelings. 'That's for you,' he said and handed me the envelope. Inside there was a shade card - with few tick-marks on the various shades of blue and a line at the bottom - you look nice in all of the above blues. I skipped a beat. I felt butterflies in my stomach. I felt loved.

P. S. - Blue, to me, is the color of love. My favorite, too!
