Tonight, I asked someone with synesthesia (he sees numbers and letters in color) what color the number 3 is (my favorite number), and he said “red.”

I then asked him what colors the letters in my name are, and he said as follows:

s – faded green, a – distinctly red, r – dark brown, a – red (again), and that “it’s a red-ish word overall.”

What’s weird is, my favorite color up until recently was red. (It’s now purple.)
