Pink and Pank

We just painted the girls’ bedroom pink. Actually, when I worked in the florist shop, we called that dark, heavy version of pink, “Pank.” The painter who painted the bedroom says he calls it “pank.” Every pink looks different in different lights, has a gray version and a clear version, a dark and a light, a warm and a cool, and a pink and a pank. That is why learning his colors is so hard for a little kid to do. It is why we grown-ups need to tell a child the name of the color 1000 times. We should not ask, “What color is that?” until we are sure that we have already told our child 1000 times that the name of that color is “pink” or maybe it is “pank.”
