Bein' Green

The Kermit the Frog song "Bein' Green" has been in my head for over a day. My favorite excepts:

It's not easy being green
It seems to blend in with so many other much more ordinary things
And sometimes people pass you over
Because you're not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
Or stars in the sky

But green's the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
Green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

But when green is all there is to be
It kind of makes you wonder why
Why wonder, wonder why?

I have this weird secret agent property where people often forget meeting me. It's not me changing my hair color too much or alternating between masks and mime outfits. I'm just kind of a euphemistic green. It can be really handy when you don't want to talk to someone you're about to run into. Sometimes it causes me to be rude. I assume someone won't remember me and I'll just feel lame when I confirm this, so I won't greet them. Now and then they do remember and I look snobby ;).
