What’s your favorite color?

I was once asked this for a job interview: What’s your favorite color and why?

I thought this was an interesting question, especially for an interview. Although, this has become a popular thing lately as the geeks and nerds are conquering the world. I didn’t really know how to answer this question. I felt that I had to write something deep and meaningful, painting a picture of a childhood discovery with pirate ships.

For as long as I could remember, Purple has been it for me. So, here’s how I replied:

I often refer to myself as a fanatic of purple, rather than it just being my favorite. I am obsessed! There isn’t exactly a cute evolutionary tale involved, but I can recall the exact moment I was sold on the primary mixture.

My five-year-old logic: Purple is the color of royalty.

My last name is Castle.

Castles are also places where royal people live.

I must be a princess!

So, what would you say?
