Dear Crayola Crayons,

I have a kick ass idea for a box of crayons! I know companies like yours are always reluctant to read such proposals, but you can have this one for free. I declaim and disclaim all claims I might have if I tried to do this on my own. I just want to see it done, and you are the people to do it!


EmotiCrayons! Yes, rather than the usual cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, you could have: Impressed, Disappointed, Yeller, Happy, Sad/Blue (this crayon could actually be blue!), Miffed, Excited, Surprised, Relieved, etc! This list could go on nearly forever. People are wanting to color themselves all kinds of things! I often hear, "Color me Surprised" from people I know really aren't, but the "Color me Impressed" people usually mean it. Anyway, it would be great fun to match a color to an emotion. "Color me Envious" would obviously be green and such, but Excited could be just about any unused color.

Anyway, I think this is a great idea that you should run with. If you do this, I would expect a box, but I wouldn't refuse a check either!
