The real reason people have children is, apparently, to have an excuse to color.
Now that a lot of young people are not having children, adult coloring books (for therapy) have been cropping up everywhere.
I suppose it’s no different than cross stitch and hook rug patterns as well as paint by number kits and jigsaw puzzles. It occupies one’s mind and gives one a sense of purpose without having to come up with the plan.
While I like doing an occasional puzzle, coloring a picture seems a little lame to me. Maybe I’m not old enough yet 🙂
