We were looking at some buildings the other day, as we are wont to do, and the conversation went like this.
Nordic Boy: What is with the color of that paneling there?
Him: Over there. It’s like…mauve. No, not mauve.
Me: That one? That’s puce.
Him: Sort of. It’s not exactly puce.
Me: You’re right. What is it?
Him: It’s pucey.
Me: Maybe the actor Gary Pucey lives there.
Him: Yeah, he’s even crazier than the original. Gary Pucey!
