Juice of the Week: The Healthy Version of Chartreuse

March 2013

“Submit your dialogue journal in the chartreuse bin,” she directed. While motioning vaguely, her fluffy hair would move as if it were one, solid covering. As she lectured, her jaw would pull back as if to feign an overbite. My ninth-grade English teacher may have been eccentric, but why would anyone want to dive into comma usage with a normal person? I certainly would not have had her any other way, and I have never thought about the color chartreuse so much as I did under her tutelage.
