THEME: STORIES FROM MY PAST
B = BLACK
Why would I chose BLACK to write about?
Well ... it's simple really.
BLACK IS MY COLOR.
Ever since I was around 9 years old, the majority of my clothes have been black with a few exceptions here and there. I am not one for wearing flashy colors. I HATE WHITE CLOTHES. Why? because I am clumsy and messy. If I wear white it will be stained within 5 minutes of me putting it on. I just can't wear white. I have a few white shirts but most have designs on them and NONE are plain.
Black has always looked good on me but the real reason I always have worn BLACK is for security. It makes me feel secure and safe. It's the lack of color really... when you put too much color in something it is WHITE but if you remove all color it is black. Black for me has always represented a level ground and something comforting.
I got in trouble in high school for wearing all black a lot. They thought I was a devil worshiper... call my parents in, put me into in school suspension and even suspended me from school a few times for wearing all black. I stood my ground. I didn't let ANYONE tell me what I could and couldn't wear back them and to this day I give ZERO FUCKS about what anyone says.
People always say "Martha, add some COLOR to your wardrobe". Uh, no. I don't need bright yellow or pink... I wear red because it was Mom and Mama Ruby's favorite color. I wear Purple because it's cool. I will wear grey because it's neutral but I will NOT ever stop putting more black than any other color in my wardrobe.... so get over it.
