When I was a kid we all got tested to see if we are colour blind. Fortunately I came out with perfect colour vision.
I actually have excellent perception of different colours. But the test didn’t cover taste, and I am not sure I would score so well there. In fact someone at work once asked if I was colour blind because of the unique colour selection I had on a diagram.
So when I am heading out I will often encounter my wife who will optimise my colour coordination with a loving mix of subtle hints and sharp whacks with a piece of bamboo (kidding mum).
Unfortunately Santhi is asleep and probably won’t respond well to being shaken awake to see if my shoes go with my belt or if a heavilly feathered cap would set my attire off perfectly
… and I still have time to hunt galahs and look up hat-making on the web if to create such a cap if it is needed, though I also lack hat making needles and felt, so that may be an impractical idea after all .
What I probably need is either a course in the bleeding obvious impacts of colour, or a book on it, or a new invention that assesses and coordinates colours for me. So if anyone knows where I can obtain a solution for my sub-optimal chromatic tendencies then please let me know.
