Once upon a time I worked in a bookstore under the management of someone with little kids. Said manager brought in scented markers from home for office use in decorating some charts for a forthcoming meeting, and I was assigned the task of generating the signage. After my typical fashion, I examined the box gleefully as I was expecting the typical boring (and only quasi-effective) markers generally bought in bulk from whatever supply depot the company utilized. The thing that naturally caught my eye was the parade of little anthropomorphic cartoon fruits corresponding to the scent of each color.
Cherry, grape, orange, lemon, blueberry, licorice (denoted by a square shape resembling the candy)…and a bear. Now, I recognized of course that what was meant by the bear was cinnamon, as cinnamon was the only standard scent that the color brown is usually related to. However, what bears and cinnamon had to do with each other eluded me. In the end I decided that they were trading on public relation of said bear to Teddy Grahams, since there is a cinnamon flavor. This however was pretty insidious and I was both at once rather amused and scandalized by the bear-scented marker.
I happened to be wearing brown that day. Since the bear marker was brown, I deduced that I must also be bear-scented. For awhile I announced to everyone what scent they were each day as denoted by the color of their clothes. Whenever someone was bear-scented, I was particularly animated and happy.
Kole is always licorice.
