Green is my favorite color, or so I thought. But as Kermit the Frog sings, "It's not easy being green." I saw it EVERYWHERE. It was in the grass, the leaves (that haven't changed color yet), the cars on the road, the traffic lights, the area rug and chairs in the media center, the highlighter on my desk, my water cup, my hand sanitizer, the covers of the books, the recycling bin. I was surrounded by different shades of green everywhere I went all day. I thought about how "green" is a word for money in this country. But when I looked in my wallet, a dollar bill really wasn't as vivid green as I remembered.
