A Very Blue Suit

I heard you have a very blue suit, she said.

I wouldn’t exactly say that, he replied.

Is it the colour of the midday sky? she asked.

No, he said.

Is it the colour of a robin’s egg? she asked.

No, he said again.

Is it the colour of the sea? she almost shrieked.

No, he said. It is the colour of a moonlit lake at twilight.

So it is a blue suit? she asked.

It is a tame shade of blue, he said.

But it is still a blue suit.

It is a blue suit after all, he agreed sadly.
