Wednesday’s Word

September 24, 2008

I had fun doing a opst from a dictionary world last week, so I’ve decided to make it a permanent feature.  Every Wednesday, I will open the dictionary and pick a word and write something based on that word.  So, here goes:

Word: Slate Blue – meaning: A grayish blue to dark bluish gray

This describes Princess’ eyes right now.  THough, it’s probably more brown than gray.  It will be interesting to see what color eyes she ends up with.  Apparently they can actually change color anywhere up to three years.  I have brown eyes and so does Hubby, but we each have a blue-eyed parent.  And apparently hazel eyes also run in my family according to my mom.  According to one web site, they won’t get lighter or more blue, though, so I’m thinking brown or hazel.  Hazel would be neat.

We’re also waiting to see what color Princess’ hair will eventually be.  Right now it’s a coppery color, which is similar to mine.  Her newborn hair is starting to fall out and her new hair is a little bit lighter, but still a similar shade.  I’d be thrilled to have a redhead, but red doesn’t run in Hubby’s family, so who knows.  And his mom said he had light hair when he was young, but now it’s a dark brown.  I like his hair color and I think it would look pretty on Princess, too.  I hate waiting.  SIgh.


Here are some fun facts:

  • did you know that green is by far the rarest? In fact, less than 2 percent of the global population possesses green eyes. As a country, Turkey has the highest percentage of citizens who have green eyes, at 20 percent. There are a number of countries – generally located in Asia, South America, and the Middle East – where green eyes are almost completely absent among the population.
  • Did you know that blue eyes are the most common eye color for Caucasians, over amber, hazel, grey, and green? In fact, over 80 percent of the population of Iceland has either blue or green eyes
Too bad we don’t have any green genes.  Well, that’s it for now.  Talk at ya later!
