Painting the bedroom

21 March 2009

Clarissa has decided that we should repaint the bedroom.

"I like it as it is," I said, looking round at the familiar brown walls.

"No, you lazy Bob Tail Rabbit," she said. "It's the first day of Spring: it's a new season, and we need a new look."

"What new look?"

"Oh, you decide," she said. "You're the artistic one."

I thought for a moment. "I like earth tones."

"It's earth tones already!" said Clarissa. "In fact, it's just earth. A nice fresh coat of emulsion would transform this place."

I gave up. "What colour would I like then?"

"I think cornflower blue — like my eyes."

Just then, my friend Nigel Floppyears came by. "White's good," he said. "Reflects the light."

Well, we couldn't decide, and when Naughty Kitten popped round, we asked him. "I think it should be auburn... to match me."

Clarissa laughed, "Oh no, I don't think orange would suit the room."

"I'm not orange," Naughty Kitten glared at her. "I'm golden."

Then we asked the Three Bears what they thought. "Sky," said Daddy Bear. "Blue," said Mummy Bear. ("Told you," muttered Clarissa.) "Pink," said Baby Bear.

"You mean: Sky Blue Pink?" I said.

"That's it!" they said, and danced off across the fields.

So, we still don't have a decision. Any ideas?
