Green is the color of my university.
The furniture, the couches and food-stained chairs of the break room are green.
The faded carpets, the posters, and the flags hanging in the hallway- green.
As I sit, eating my lunch I look around me.
A box of green tea, the little basket filled with coffee pods, the community mugs, even the paint-by-number resting on the scratched table- all green.
I look down at my employee shirt and see that this school has dyed me green.
