It may be trivial but knowing a person's favourite colour could actually mean the difference between knowing that person and not knowing him or her. Think of it this way. How often have you heard of someone say, "I used to know such and such; we were good mates"? Chances are, if you were to ask in response, "What was his/her favourite colour?" then your mutual acquaintance may very well be humiliatingly lost for words.
This could especially be the case if a boyfriend fails to identify his girlfriend's favourite colour upon request. It seems to happen more often than not, so knowing a significant other's favourite colour might not be so insignificant after all. Also we must remember that human beings can view up to ten million colours, according to this Wikipedia article, and colours are very much a part of our every day life.
Sometimes it is no easy task, and many people can be quite fastidious in identifying what their favourite colours are. I know I am. Asked about my favourite colour, my reply is "Purple haze - the kind that's often witnessed in a sunset." It has always been my favourite colour. I remember when I first started using such a precise description when, as a kid, I was given some colouring in pencils, and one of them was called purple haze. It was the exact shade of purple I like, and I've used such a term ever since to describe my favourite colour. Perhaps you share my purple passion, too?

Then there are gender-based colours, such as the classic blue and pink. I had a friend from primary school who was male and he just happened to like the colour pink, which smashes the idea of traditional gender-based colours. But strangely enough, if a girl happens to like the colour blue she might not be considered a tom boy inasmuch as a boy liking pink is classified a girly boy.
Moreover, there are people with obsessions with a particular colour, with everything red or everything green for example. Usually, such people may be remembered by their favourite colours long after their names are forgotten. Could you be one of them?
Just go ahead, tell us what your favourite colour is, no matter how particular you must be. Now is the perfect opportunity.
