Me: Ooo I love your dress...that blue looks like it came from the Greek Isles.
Her: Thanks! This royal blue is my twelve-year-old's favorite color, so I thought I'd wear it to visit him today. I got it at the Sundance outlet, and thought I could pull it off.
Me: You certainly do.
Her: Your baby is adorable. What is she here for?
Me: She has a lot of problems...just got discharged from the NICU after seven and a half months.
Her: That's awful. My son has had lots of problems since he was born too...(After a pause) Things like this change you. It makes you fearless.
Me: Yes it does. You can wear bright royal Greek Isle blue.
Her: Yep! And hey - I like your head scarf.
My head scarf? Also a bright royal Greek Isle blue.
