Taylor: When did Jan turn pink?
Taylor: She's been wandering around since yesterday saying she is tickled pink. She doesn't look pink to me.
Micah: That's a human expression. It means she is very happy about something. And if you hadn't been in hiding from the two strangers in the house yesterday, you would know why she thinks she's pink.
Taylor: But I thought bad things were happening to her. Why would she be happy?
Micah: Oh, you mean things like Thursday morning she was bitten on the back of the hand by something, possibly a spider, and the itching and burning has been driving her crazy? And Sunday morning at 6 a.m. she rolled over and tried to sit up but she was on the very edge of the bed and fell off, scraping her forehead as she hit the corner of the bureau and slid down And when her head hit the floor, the rest of her rolled off the bed twisting her back?
Taylor: Exactly. And then first thing Monday morning she was petting you, when you turned around, slipped on some papers, and left claw marks just below Jan's eye.
Micah: That was an accident, just as the knob popping off the front door a week and a half ago was an accident. She asked her landlord for help.. His nephew and another guy came over yesterday to replace it. Such a change from the ugly old brown set.
Micah: And while they were here, the outdoor bulb under the roof was replaced so she can see inside the dog pen when she has to go out at night, the toilet valve was replaced, the heaters were blown out with compressed air so they can be turned on when the weather gets colder - and a most welcome surprise.
Micah: They built her a sturdy railing for the back steps.
Taylor: Is that why Jan thinks she is pink?
Micah: Yes! Put on your rose colored glasses and let Jan be pink for the day.
Taylor: I don't have any rose colored glasses.
Micah: That's okay. A little pink nail polish on a pair of Jan's reading glasses will do the trick.
