Pink is a very beautiful colour.
Let me tell you a little story. I was feeling very depressed today. I woke up in a frantic frenzy this morning because someone was knocking on my front door. By the time I got to the door to try and open it, that someone had disappeared and was nowhere in sight. I then looked to the right-hand side and noticed that someone had delivered a package.
The package had inside it two jackets and a pair of beige tights. One of the jackets was pastel pink and the other was basic black. Apparently, my room-mate had ordered some clothes from an online retailer.
My friend loved the black jacket and the beige pants, but she did not like the pink jacket because she believed it looked “funny” on her. Instead of returning the pink jacket to the supplier for a refund, she gave it to me because she thought it would suit me.
That afternoon, I went to the supermarket to buy some groceries. After I parked my car, I walked towards the shops and a blonde petite lady who was unloading her groceries in her car actually did a 180 to look at my jacket. She smiled at me after seeing the pastel pink hue… or maybe she was just being polite, who knows?
Later on, I went to the cash register at Woolies to pay for my goods and the lad working behind the counter was really cordial and sweet to me. Most of the time, people are not very affable at supermarkets simply because Sydney supermarkets are very busy and congested, but this fellow was very warm and friendly.
After paying for my goods, I went back to my car to exit the parking lot and make my way home. As I was trying to exit the parking lot, another driver was also trying to do that at the same time. He caught a glimpse of me wearing my pink jacket and he let me go ahead of him. What a gentleman!
Maybe this was all just a coincidence. Maybe all 3 of them were just being polite because their mother taught them well. But I like to think that this pastel pink jacket and the feelings this colour evokes added a touch of warmth to the human spirit on this particular day.
I guess I’ll be wearing this colour more often.
