There should be little doubt in your mind what my favorite color is. I had this fantastic purple pull over shirt in college and I loved this shirt but it was starting to get a little frayed on the edges. One day I was out in a park flying kites with my beautiful new girlfriend and her little brother and our kites were getting tossed around like rag dolls. I had a solution, and since I was wearing a t-shirt under my purple shirt I took off my beloved shirt and I tore it into strips to use as tails for our kites. My new girlfriend was stunned, pleased, confused and now more smitten than ever. She knew this was my favorite shirt and she said in a stern voice-"why did you do that?" and I said "our kites have to fly" but she said "thats your favorite shirt" and I said "it still is." We watched our kites with their new purple tails bob and weave in the afternoon sky as gently and perfect as a kite could fly.
Purple is a majestic color. I think its the only color that gets this status. So I present to you my regal fare.
