Okay now lookee here. I was red with humiliation and
in a generally black mood about it. My wife thought it
was another woman and was green with jealousy, and
that made me too yellow to confront her. No longer in
the pink of mental health, I spent the day feeling
blue about the depths of despair I'd sunk to, and now
you, YOU, bring this purple prose back to life Mr.
Putnam. What are you? Some kind of Brown Shirt? The
pucker factor from seeing the chromatic issue heaved
up once more struck me so hard that now I have
sepia-cordovan marks in my off-white dainties. Well, I
hope you're happy.
