My SO often helps me pack orders on busy days, and we’ve had quite a few words about what color a color actually is. What color is aubergine, he’ll ask. Purple, I answer. Well then why don’t you call it purple!? What the heck is aubergine?
A good many chuckles have passed in the warehouse on this topic. We use the colors that the manufacturers assign, and even I scratch my ahead occasionally on the choice of color name.
The other day we were looking at a printed catalog and I pointed out a list of colors that I couldn’t make out because they hadn’t included swatches. The conversation went something like, “Well, I know a tiger lily is a flower, but I’m really not sure what color it is. Have you seen one?” So after another silly round of what color each color is and where these color names come from, he suggested a contest. So here it is.
Glen’s contest: Match the color names to the color swatches, for example 1A, 2B, etc. Leave your answer as a comment here or on our Facebook page with some way to get in touch with you (e-mail, phone, Facebook handle) and the person with the most correct answers will receive one of our new organic panties when they come out in June (or July). Last day to enter is Sunday, May 25, 2014.
In the very likely event that more than one person ties for the same number of correct answers, we’ll draw randomly to decide who wins. Anyone can play for fun, but you must leave a way for us to contact you if you want to win the prize.
PS – We originally started with 20, but we couldn’t even get it right… lol.
