“Was the paint donated, or did someone actually choose those colours?” I ask. “I chose them” Verrelli replies. Oops… I need to learn to keep my mouth shut! But I find it fascinating… Of all the colours in the rainbow (and those in between) whatever would possess someone to paint the walls, brown, beige and yellow? But that’s the thing about colour I guess, it’s so personal. “We wanted a different colour” says Verrelli. It’s definitely better than the hospital green. “It looks like ice-cream” I say, trying to redeem the conversation (he doesn’t seem offended). Rum-’n-raisin, chocolate and banana.
