It’s called green, but means something different

Standard

When we say green, what comes in to your mind? yeah i know what you are thinking! it’s either your favorite color, all about nature, and many more. I’ll just cite an example here in the Philippines when someone calls you green minded it means you are “horny” sorry for the term. anyway i want to share you these words, “it’s called green but have something meaning””. I’ll just got it from dictionary.com haha coz im trying to wide my vocabulary 🙂 also I often play the games here, you can also try if you want. thank you
