Young Duncan just wanted to color. One day in class, when he went to take out his crayons, he found a stack of letters, one from each color complaining about one thing or another.
The purple thought he colored outside the lines too much, the beige thought taking second fiddle to brown was insulting and the fight between orange and yellow on what color the sun really is was exhausting...
Duncan was perplexed for a moment but then he handled the 'crayon strike' in a very grown up way. Way to go Duncan - I probably would have switched to the pencil crayons.
