many people like watercolors. some just like water-color.

I learned something new about my friend Elbert when he was visiting recently. His second- and third-favorite colors are white and "chocolate," respectively. So he's already out there on the margins of the color wheel. But his favorite color of all, he insists, is clear.

"That's not allowed. Clear isn't a color."
"Yes, it is."

So, that's that. Why Crayola doesn't issue a crayon in its jumbo pack that contains no dye and just makes the paper all shiny, I don't know.

When recently telling friends about NOAH, I explained it was the National Organization for Albinism and Hydropigmentation. I wonder if Elbert would appreciate water-colored skin?

I was looking around my apartment last night (after scrubbing it so thoroughly it glowed) and it occurred to me that my whole apartment is kind of clear and shiny. Shiny is beautiful.

Maybe not crayola, but some color 'sticks' do come in clear.! They're used to blend other colors together. So your friend may be a nuanced artist.

They also make a clear crayon for decorating Easter eggs.

My favorite color is black - does that count?
