“Let’s do something crazy,” said Red to the other colors.
“Like what?” asked Blue.
“Let’s create a stripe of colors across the sky.”
“A rainbow?” asked Blue.
“It’s been done before?” asked Red.
“Duh,” said Blue.

“We are not exactly innovative, are we?” commented Red.
Blue groaned. “No,” he concurred.
