Sacre bleu! That’s alotta blue! What is it about blue that keeps us coming back for more? We use it in the names of songs, movies, and even children. We refer to soulful jazz music as the blues. We even get blue when we are down in the dumps or when we are feeling cold. It is used to describe the aristocracy, the hard-working middle class, and police officers. Everybody claims the word as their own.
Sure. It’s a nice color and all. From azure to navy, periwinkle to cobalt, blue is popular. Even denim has worked its way from dungarees to blue jeans. Speaking of blue jeans, did you know there is even a painter referred to only as the ‘Master of the Blue Jeans’? He captured the exact texture of denim in his paintings way back in 17th century Italy! In fact, don’t think ole Levi Strauss invented the stuff! Oh, no! It’s been around since the 1300s. See — you learned something new today!
