For those who do not know me, let me introduce myself. I am a Wench, identifying as such since unmasked by my partner many, many moons ago. I have never shared with the outside world.
That is about to change. Let me start with a
definition (never really outlined before now ~grin~ so all mistakes are mine
and I hope fellow Wenches will forgive me).
(English, pl. wenches)
"You Wench, I was going to eat that!"
a human being, generally of the female
persuasion, with self deprecating, sarcastic humor and scathing wit toward
those closest; a being of highly salacious, mostly harmless, generally self
serving intent; prone to mild to moderate selfishness and narcissism, thereby
self proclaimed unfit for motherhood; intensely artistic with a bent toward
perfectionism and about as domestic as most house cats; apt to buck convention
at every little unassuming opportunity; of any age from puberty to advancing
years, the young being prone to insecurity and a need to please others while
middle-age brings more self enlightenment, acceptance, and bravado.
There. That about sums me up.
Now I just need the USA to proclaim
the day after Mother’s Day as National Wench Day. I planned my celebration while
ruminating on Sunday.
For starters I will meet local writers over
breakfast until time to get a much needed hair makeover. If we spend more time
talking than writing (or not!) I will head next to a favorite shopping center for more writing. The place boasts a lovely “town square” fountain, benches, and plenty of accommodating
establishments should the weather be inclement.
How would you describe your core self? If you
are a Wench would you care to lobby for the holiday with me?
