I was watching one of those cooking competition shows which have become so popular these days when one of the women on the show I noticed had her fingernails painted, and her thumbs were done in red and the rest of the fingers done in black and this gave me an idea. I decided to paint my nails in alternating black and red, I thought it give it an Alice in Wonderland vibe to it.
I believe I have mentioned once before that one of the things of which I do not like about painting my nails is I haven't the patience to wait for them to dry, so now I paint them right before going to bed to dry while I am sleeping.
I go into the bathroom, and it is late, I am tired, I don't feel like turning on the main lights in the bathroom because they would be too bright, there is a nightlight on, and I open the medicine cabinet where I keep my nail polish, and of course I have a preference for dark colors, and I grab what I thought was the black.
I go to my room, and turn on the bedside lamp, which also is dimly lit, and I paint my nails, go to bed and wake up to discover lo and behold, it was of course not black but a dark purple, and I was agitated because it was not what I wanted, and plus the red contrasted against the purple color made it look too pink which I cannot stand, so the whole thing looked stupid. So I had to remove the purple and redo it with my black.
Also coincidently I happen to be reading a book called The Red and the Black right now.
