I had a dream about colors and letters. Every letter was being assigned a color, and we would form words with swatches instead of sounds. I was on the committee to decide which letter got which color. The vowels were all getting red. I made the argument that E should definitely not get the red bandana swatch. Why? Because the letter E is so flighty. It's the Paris Hilton of letters. It would take the red bandana (a strong, traditional pattern), and be like, "Oops, I dropped it! Tee Hee!" Better give that color to someone else.
