Reply Gigs says: May 22, 2013 at 2:09 am When I was in second grade, my teacher allowed us out of the classroom at the end of the day by calling a color that we may have had on. i had a magenta long sleeved knit top and slacks which had another color on it but I can’t remember what it was. She never called magenta and called numerous other colors that may have been somewhat like it. So I was the last child sitting in the classroom and she asked me why I hadn’t left yet. I told her, you did not call magenta. She looked at me puzzled and I supposed she wondered what color she called that she thought it was. I am 59 and still remember the day like it was yesterday.
