what white apparently doesn’t mean to me
I’m going to be honest here, I’ve got nothing. It’s not so much writer’s block, as it is a difficulty changing gears.
I’ve been obsessed with cigars of late. It’s a hobby of mine since last summer, but it’s really blossomed of late. My cigar obsession really took off since I started sampling a variety of different offerings from online vendors.
I was tempted to write a review of a cigar named White Obsidian. It is about the word “white” afterall, it’s right there in the cigar’s name. I received a 5-pack of mini White Obsidian’s as a freebie with a purchase I made last summer, and I did write a “quickie” review after sampling one, my first experience with the brand. But, I just didn’t find any justification for twisting yet another Wicked Wednesday topic around to match up with my personal cigar obsession.
I considered writing a post about white privilege. Certainly, it’s on topic for the prompt, weighty, and a current part of the conversation in the worlds of sexuality and kink. But, I just don’t feel up to tackling such a truly weighty topic at the moment. Talking about white privilege requires more than a little measure of introspection, as I’m certainly the recipient of said phenomenon.
Then I thought about writing a post that black was the new white, a thought I had after being told that I’m Sinnjara’s knight in black shining armor. I’ve always had a soft spot for villains, as I’ve always found that they are more complex and believable than their opponents. In the end though, I didn’t quite have the chutzpa to do that either.
Influenced by the title of a Netflix drama, I did come up with a name for the essay – If Orange is the New Black Then Black is the New White. But, that’s about as far as it got, and I’m toiling away here at 9:28pm on Wednesday night, so it’s not like there’s any more time to complete this weeks essay for the prompt – white.
It was truly a Wicked Wednesday however, as Serafina and Sinnjara got matching school girl outfits for Halloween. The white stockings they modeled, complete with a nice black bow at the top, absolutely completed the outfits. Can you say adorable?
