I remember when I was 6 being given at school one of those photocopied pieces of paper "My favourite colour is _______ because __________________". Well I knew my favourite colour was red. I hadn't really thought of why before. So I put something in there that I thought was the type of thing my teacher would have wanted me to write and painted a big picture of a person and some other things, using only my favourite colour.
When I had to show my work to the class I got a bit of a funny look from my teacher.
"My favourite colour is red because it is the colour of blood."
"Is that really why?"
If only Twilight had come out 15 years earlier maybe my answer would have come as less of a shock to Ms. Cooch. Then again maybe not, I was only 6 years old.
Why did I need to have a reason for liking my favourite colour anyway?
