City officials and Robertsville residents were shocked last Tuesday morning when they awoke to find their new emergency water supply tower had been painted shocking pink by the company which constructed it, Ball Industries Interdimensional subsidiary The Cranston Company.
"We got a great deal on the paint," a company spokesperson said to reporters' questions, "It was really the only way to come in under budget."
"Well, I guess we can make a show of it." said Mayor Pollyanna Temple later at a press conference, "I mean, we're probably the only city in the country with a pink water tank. We might as well make the best of it, since we really don't have the funds to repaint it."
"Looks turrible!" was local citizen Clyde Ott's reaction, "Like a big pink thumb stickin' up outta the ground!"
Yeah, it kind of grows on you! :)) But I kind of wish now that I hadn't built or posted it yet. It would have gotten some points in the contest, I'm sure! Ah, well. I have other surprises up my sleeve for Mr. Phipson's judges.
I had to do SOMETHING with that big pink quarter round. It's been bugging me since I first downloaded LDD. I used it for the raspberry chocolate mousse too. Not much else you can do with it, though. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
