brownish?

On Saturday my other half told me that he had seen a top he thought I would like in a certain shop window. He described it as 'brownish with birds on'. Of course, hearing that it had birds on it caused Holly and I to go to said shop and try and buy it. But could we find it? No. We were in the shop for over half an hour as I was determined to find it, and we even asked someone for help who was no help at all. And I even had Holly trying very hard to be helpful, saying things like 'here's a purple one with pretty flowers on it'. In the end we gave up and I told Stuart we couldn't find it and had got very grumpy trying. And then, I got it for Mothers Day! So was I just useless at looking you might ask, well no, because despite his description of 'brownish' it is actually white, with red stripes!!! : )

Hilarious!!

Oh, unless your husband is actually color blind, then it's only funny.

At least he was thinking of you - that's really sweet.

ROFL. That is freaking hilarious.

That story is why when telling my other what I want for Christmas I cut out pictures, glue them in a notebook, include the price, and where to find it. He still never comes home with any of it. lol.

I can see it looking brownish from far away. But then I'm always in the minority when it comes to identifying a color. :D
