10 volunteers came to the shelter on Saturday to paint our offices. Mine was converted from a two-tone pink (think "Calamine lotion" and "Pepto-Bismol") into much more pleasant greens.
They said that pink was calming, but only for about the first four hours; it supposedly becomes agitates after that time . That had been my excuse to cut out of work early each afternoon. "I'm agitated. It's the pink paint job, not my poor work ethic!"
Now that my office is green, I guess I have no excuse to leave work early.
Win some, lose some. :)
