A friend and I were talking about how girls and boys see colors differently.  If you don’t know what I mean, there’s an example below:

My first thought was “yep, boys pretty much only see the primary and secondary colors… then I realized boys know pink.  Since one of my friends is getting married and I need to find a “pink” dress for the wedding, I’ve had a discussion about rose vs. hot pink vs. magenta vs. pastel and so on, and then emerald vs. olive vs. lime vs. forest for the green.  But if you go back to the basics, light yellow, light blue, light purple, dark red, dark green, pink is the only light/dark color that gets it’s own name.

Anyone else find that odd?
