What an original idea! I never would imagine the color of walls would make such a difference to kids' enthusiasm, but color does have a radical effect on people's moods. Great concept!

I also really enjoyed the other color imagery you used in your story--especially "vanilla bean boring" and the reference to the "blue-haired ladies"!

Wonderfully told - and great detail! I felt like I was right there. Great atmosphere.
I loved your descriptions, especially "vanilla-bean boring." I also liked your details of what the walls heard. Very clever and creative in your approach to the subject.
