Feeling Asparagus?

I feel blue. I thought about this phrase all weekend long. When did the color blue become associated with sadness? Aren't there a number of other colors that are more appropriate? After an Internet search I am still no closer to knowing the true origin of the idiom- feeling blue. Some say its origins are in Greek mythology, some place it as a navy term and others just make up a bunch of random crap.

The color blue just doesn't seem quite right for how I am feeling. One color doesn't seem to be sufficient. Using the colors of Crayola crayons, I have made a list of all the colors I am today:

Asparagus
Black
Dolphin Gray
Olive
Outer Space
Shadow
Timberwolf

That is how I am feeling this week—in alphabetical order.

I really don’t enjoy feeling like a 120 count box of Crayola crayons. I would much prefer to just feel like myself.
