Who knew that a few polka dots could inspire such excellent speculation? When I offered up the notion that my new blog design has some symbolism behind it, your ideas were downright Faulknerian (is that a word? if not, it is now) in scope.
So yes, I'll tell that you the six dots are, in fact, representative of both rocks AND the little round dryer holes. And there are six of them, to represent the six people in my family, and the second one (with the title) is Yours Truly. It is brown because...well, I've got nothin' there. Maybe brown for chocolate? Or for my haircolor (this month)?
To the sweet people who speculated that there were five orange dots because I was trying to hint that I am having another baby, may I just say that this is a precious notion. However, I am not--repeat, NOT--pregnant. If I were, you can be sure that I wouldn't have told you via blog header, I would have written a post that went something like this:
"OH. MY. WORD."
Also, just as I suspected, my husband's strong feelings about the color orange brought him out of hiding to leave an actual, honest-to-goodness comment, something I think he's done only three times in the three years I've blogged. Then he came home and put on his Razorback pajama bottoms just to prove he means business.
Anyway, thanks for playing along. Y'all are too much fun.
