A Tip For All My Fellow White People

Wed, 2008-02-27 13:26

I am sorry to have to admit this, but I am a white person. WASP was my acronym even before the Internet(s) came along. I do have a cousin with brown eyes, but I think that comes from the other side of the family. Mostly we are just all white in my family.

Imagine my joy when Stick Figure Lis turned me on to this great new website Stuff White People Like. It is just wonderful to read about the trends involving folks just like me. Well, maybe not exactly like me, because I am more of a rural mountain white person than anything else, but that is cool because I get to feel superior about living in an 'authentic neighborhood' and stuff.

The thing that made me most proud was the endorsement of the metal water bottle.
I have one myself as you see here: bottle Sure, it is not a fancy one with a logo like you see on the other site, but I can fill it with pure natural mountain well water any time I like and enjoy that nice saved the planet feeling. I mean, of course I recycle, but reusable is so much better, don't ya think?

Anyway, I promise to feel superior any time I see someone drinking out of one of those expensive plastic water bottles. I need to remember to carry my metal bottle around more so I can look superior too. You just know it's right.

Tune in next week for a photo series depicting my quest for the perfect travel coffee mug. I promise it will be worth your while.

I tease my husband whenever something applicable comes up, which isn't often, since he's not that liberal...

despite your ethnicity or lack thereof,

There is probably something on that site to make you feel superior/guilty. That's the fun of stereotypes, along with the natural inclination for folks to strain out a gnat while swallowing a camel.

I am just glad I could fit in on any level!
