How did the phrase “I’m feeling blue” develop? I mean, when I’m sad, I don’t turn any shade of blue, actually I become quite flushed. The color drains from my face until I look quite sick. I’ve always wanted to know that. It’s weird, because blue is such a beautiful color, and it doesn’t indicate any sadness or grief. I think the term should be “I’m feeling black”. But wait, maybe people will consider that a racist statement.
