When Red is Good:
When a teacher uses a red pen to write a big, fat "A" on your paper.
When you bite into a juicy, ripe tomato.
When somebody buys me ruby jewelry, which granted, hasn't ever happened but maybe it will someday don't ever give up the dream.
When those slippers worked for Dorothy.
When Red is NOT good:
When the flag at the beach has been red EVERY SINGLE DAY of this retreat, and the kids haven't been able to get in the ocean for four days in a row due to the current and undertow, so please cross your fingers for a green or even a yellow flag today because honestly, if they can't get in the water on today, the last day, I think they might pretty much boycott the ocean and Florida and family vacations from now on.
