One of my grans favourite stories to tell about me - excluding the one where I refused point blank to try on school shoes in a shop, whilst my sister strutted her stuff - is of me arguing with my grandpa over the colour yellow.
Yellow was my favourite colour. Everything had to be yellow from my hair bobbles to my favourite Sesame Street character, Big Bird. If it wasn't yellow, I wasn't interested. But my obsessive love for yellow wasn't the source of our argument. It was my pronunciation.
I couldn't, despite my love of the colour, say yellow.
"It's yellow." My grandpa would say. To which I would reply adamantly, "I'm saying lellow!"
I'm nearly 30, I haven't said lellow since I was five and yet this story of my mispronunciation has become adorable legend to my gran, a source of amusement for the family and a very fond memory for me of my grandpa.
And I still love lellow.
So Pantone's spring lellow, Custard 13-0720, fills me with warm and comforting feelings of nostalgia and happiness.
