A have a good amount of ties that I have collected over the years.
Red ties. Blue ties. Purple ties. Pink ties. Orange ties.
I have solid ties. Striped ties. Novelty ties. I still have a few zipper ties from that very long phase of my life.
But enough of the Dr. Seuss stuff.
I don't own a single green tie.
Now, if you are still reading this, you might be thinking, "OK, why are you telling us this?" It's simple. Green is a good color for me. A redhead in green is like insta-Christmas. Win-win for everyone. I have green shirts, green sweaters, a green jacket, and a green hat. I can pull off green.
But I tell myself, at 26 years old, that I have not purchased a green tie?????
So I go to places. Department stores. Tie stores. Walmart.
I look at the green ties and I am never satisfied. The shade of green isn't right. I don't dig the striping. The comp color is weird. You know, important stuff like that. And so the search continues.
One day, perfect green tie, I will find you.
And there will be much rejoicing.
