It is true, I purposely and willingly checked the "green background" checkbox on the order form for school pictures. However, I must have missed the word "neon" in the fine print somewhere. I guess I was envisioning some placid shade of evergreen. This scan doesn't really do it justice. Let me just say that it is BRIGHT.
Fortunately, my child is excessively cute and can overcome even the most obnoxious background. Word. (Remind me to choose a different color next year.)
