ACTUALLY you're very very wrong there. It's incredibly common! Most everybody has some form of it. It's usually not as dramatic as Mia's, but most people have some synesthesia. I have synesthesia. Numbers, letters, days of the week, months, people, names, and words. Oh, and musical keys. Example:
A: red
B: blue
C: yellow
D: green
E: terra-cotta
F: bright green
1: yellow
2: blue
3: red-orange
4: purple
5: orange
Monday: magenta
Tuesday: Blue
Wednesday: egg-yolk yellow
January: Gold
February: red
March: green
April: lavender
June: yellow
Sagar: Red with a hint of green (not impossible, there have been studies where people can see greenish-red)
Ruza: Dark purple
cloudwriter: light blue

SEE! It's common.

That's really cool, I wish I had it... even though most people who have it complain about it...

Just trust me. I guess a lot of people have pseudo-synesthesia, so it's not actually counted as synesthesia, but it has the same effect. Just not created the same way. I have it more than most, but most everyone has SOME sort of synesthesia, pseudo or not.
PS: Don't trust Wikipedia. It once said that the capitol of Texas was Hamburger.
