Beige: (n) a pale sandy yellowish-brown color.
Am I the only weirdo who stops and thinks about God creating people from the dust of the Earth?
By dust, do we mean blowing sand from the desert? Or are we referring to soil?
Either way, God did not make humanity out of baby powder.
What I mean is, tweren’t white.
It’s amazing how Caucasian people came up with the idea that they are superior, considering their lack of pigment and the fact that they don’t resemble the hue of dust.
The first man and woman who were created were certainly darker in shade. A dusty brown.
So even though people jokingly say that they’re going to “go wild” and paint their den beige, and then giggle–actually, if you blended all the colors of human skin together, wouldn’t you end up with beige?
Isn’t our coloration very mediocre and therefore equally insignificant?
Because the beauty of beige is that it refuses to offer enough excitement to dazzle the room. It requires knickknacks, carpeting and wall hangings to bring it to life.
So do we.
