Minty fresh: a rant.

Look, why is mint green:

 nothing like the colour of mint?

It's enough to drive people crazy, you know.

Word To Use Today: some sort of green that's actually the colour it claims to be. I suppose bottle green comes quite close. 

The word mint comes from the Old English minte, from the Greek minthē.
