“Burgundy,” I shout.
“Ochre,” Katrin tosses back.
“Aqua,” I say.
“Sunflower yellow,” she returns.
“Broccoli metallic!” I offer up, and we dissolve into fits of laughter and cannot continue any further.
It’s the first few minutes of our hour-long meeting to prepare for a workshop, and Katrin and I have started off by playing a game we made up called “Color Duel.” We take turns naming colors until someone repeats a color that’s already named or pauses for more than 5 seconds or we can’t stop laughing. And then the game is over and we get to work. It’s so much fun for us.
