Shades of the Little Green Monster

I was green with envy.
The little green monster of jealousy.

I wonder if these shades of green are the same? Or is one darker or lighter then the other?

If I was a crayon called Envy Green would I be darker then a crayon called Jealous Green?

Or would it be a lighter color green like sea sick green?

I also find it frustrating that Crayola gets to decide this for me without any input on my behalf.

I don't think it is fair they get to dictate the color of my emotional responses into a definitive color. After all aren't my cheeks flush with anger at a different color then yours?

I thought this was going to be a post about my Red Sox. In case you don't know, the wall behind the field is called the green monster and Wally is our mascot-he's a green monster. :)

What were you jealous about? Or rather, envious about?

Envy green is like a neon green all flashes of uncontrolable emotion.

Jealousy Green is deep green, all the deep heat of passion burbling up, churning and thickening like a stew.
