"Do you like my new purple top?" I asked.
"Purple?!" he said. "I thought it was black."
"Well," I said, "it's really eggplant. Or, aubergine."
Fabio gave me a funny look. "No man ever came up with a name like 'aubergine'," he said.
Then he told me, "When I was a kid, I saw a box of 64 colouring pencils, and I thought to myself, 'Who would ever want 64 colours?'"
I laughed. "That's right, babe. You really only need black, white, blue and red, don't you?"
"Yes." he said. "AND there's only 2 kinds of blue. Blue. And light blue."
So there you go.
I know I've talked about colours and my men-folk before, but it's endlessly entertaining.
