#MondayMusings : The blues and the other hues!
This is definitely is not an art post.
I hate the phrase Monday Morning Blues for two reasons.
- I hate Mondays.
- Blue is my favourite colour.
So if you bring the things you like and hate together, are you going to like it or hate it? In this case I definitely hate. I know the “Feeling Blue” is a phrase that has its origins from times of old. But I just can’t hate the colour blue. I’ve to find a phrase that explains how I feel on Mondays.
So what is my phrase for it? Or rather what is my colour for it? Let me think about it.
How about Red?
Red signifies danger. Mondays are dangerous, aren’t they? After the bliss called weekend that went by even before you could actually enjoy it, Mondays mark the beginning of yet another week of work. Mondays mean meetings – definitely not the happy kind! And how I hate the Red coloured error message when my code throws some errors! So the Monday Reds it is then?
Oh wait! Isn’t Red also supposed to signify love? So Monday Reds would translate to Monday Love. And that clearly is non-existent. Okay wait! If Red signifies both love and danger, I’ve a question. Is love dangerous? I’ve got something else to think about now. But let me not deviate from the topic. Red is a confusing colour! And plus I like when the traffic lights go Red on Monday Mornings. Why? I walk the almost two kilometer stretch to work everyday and I spend more time waiting to cross the road rather than actually crossing the road. But whatever be the reason Red is eliminated.
Since I spoke about traffic signals, shall I pick the colour green then? Green for envy. Mondays are definitely envious of the fun that we have during weekends. But wait, green signifies progress and prosperity too, isn’t it?
Colours, why are you so confused? Why do you signify opposite things?
The more I think about it, the more confused I get! I pick each colour and then I realize that I like something about that colour. I’ve got my favourite colour, but yes I love all the colours and I do not hate them. Oh yeah, I love black and white too!
But wait. There is one colour that can represent what I feel on Monday mornings. Grey! Wait, is it even the colour? That question is for another day. While a bunch of people may go gaga about fifty shades of grey, I do not like even a single shade of it. I definitely don’t like the dullness associated with it. It makes me feel low. Bingo! I’ve found the perfect solution.
Ladies and gentlemen, by the powers vested in me by no one but myself, I hereby declare “Monday Morning Greys” as the phrase that best describes most of our Monday morning feelings!
Ah! All that discussion about colours did add a some colour to my otherwise boring Monday. So how you doing? If you were facing the greys, I hope I added some colour to it!
