a puce thursday


pondering puce...

puce literally means 'flea' in french, why? cos apparently puce is the colour of a flea's belly... not being familiar with these little critters, i have no idea what the colour of their tiny tummys are... hey mollie you ever seen a flea's tummy?

tummy?... no moll a flea's tummy... a what? oh forget it...

oh mollie you wee winner! puce has to be the colour of a flea's poop which i'm guessing is the same colour that b & c's face goes when they see you pooping on the deck... yes, that has to be it... if puce is the colour of a blood-sated flea than it would have to be a deep, red, digested blood colour... no?

infact it's probably not far off the colour b goes after she's eaten a chilli...

i bet it looks just like all that blood rising to the surface when b finds her shoe outside, mollie...

it is bound to be a pretty good match to b's face when she sees mollie digging up the bulbs...

or finds mollie outside with inside toys...

come to think of it it's likely to be the colour b & c have been going as they try to decide on paint colours... and the colour they went after receiving the painters quote...

to fix our peeling house... actually guys don't you think it should be mollie as the bad sport in this years mangominster...

she always seems to be at the bottom of everything...

i mean, you gotta give me a break here, how much more evidence do you need? so i stash a few bones and i may growl a bit when anyone comes near them... but to be labeled as the bad sport... sheesh!

that so doyle, who scratched the paint off the back door i wonder?...


blue's next colour challenge is gonna be pewter...
