My daughter and I went to a local hardware store to buy a new toilet seat for our cream-colored toilet. I was going to buy a toilet seat in a matching cream color.
My daughter wanted the blue toilet seat. “Mama, lets buy the blue one.”
“No, it doesn’t match.”
I bought the cream-colored toilet seat and took it home. But, I didn’t install it. I kept thinking about the blue toilet seat. Why didn’t I buy the blue one? Did I care what people would think if the toilet seat didn’t match?
Is there a rule book out there somewhere that says all toilet lids have to match the bowl color. Is there an eleventh commandment , “Though shalt always buy a toilet seat that is the same color as the toilet bowl.”
No, there is no rule about the color of toilet seats.
There is also no rule telling me that I have to cut my hair short because I am over the age of fifty. I have long hair. I am growing a braid down my back.
There is no rule that says I have to eat my can of sardines and vegetables before I eat my dessert. Tonight I ate my strawberries and whipped cream before my sardines and vegetables.
There is no rule that says I have to die my gray hair dark brown or black. I like my hair gray. There is no rule that says my head has to be the same color as a bottle in a box.
I returned the cream-colored toilet seat. I bought the blue toilet seat.
I proclaim 2013 to be The Year Of The Blue Toilet Seat
This is the year to be bold and have fun. This is the year to embrace the color in your life.
And besides, the blue toilet seat matches the blue eyes of the cat I painted.
What is the Blue Toilet Seat in your life? How will you bold this year?
Please tell me in the comments. I would love to chat.
