Holy flora, fellow and sister 'greek-o-lites!

What the hell is going on with this fascination? I did not think I was that deeply affected by recent study and plays of THE game, but I was on my way into a bookstore today and saw two gentleman talking in front. The only thing I see are grain and vegetable-colored t-shirts (seeming exactly matched in hue) as if they were huuuge fans. I didn't dare to ask, but I did turn to my son and said 'Grain and Vegetable from Agricola.' He just shook his head.

And then I was in the grocery store in our next stop and - I kid you not - an elderly couple walked by in produce (veggie section if it ain't called 'produce' much outside the U.S.) with - of course - veggie and grain colored shirts. And that was true, until the lady walked past the shoulders-tall shelf, thus revealing her full blouse and displayed other equally brightly-tinted colors in bands below the bright yellow. But I made sure to pass my oddly plant-oriented sightings to my son, my witness.

And then, not five minutes later, three young adults walked by with bright colored shirts, I scored a trifecta squared and I turned to my son and said, "I can't believe it! It's vegetable, grain and reed!" I'm not hurting to play, but my brain is apparently loving the color scheme.

Y'know,

I don't mean to play favorites with resources, but I suppose the white-shirted fella could of been a sheep.
