A moment of remembrance for the fact that the word “sable” used to be one of my favorite words, because it was phonetically beautiful.
Unfortunately, back when we were dating, my ex-girlfriend wrote a fucking dreadful “erotic story” about some vampire in a rock band, who was clearly supposed to be her, who fucked some angelic redhead bitch who was, embarrassingly enough, a really thinly veiled attempt at writing me into the story. And she named her Sable. So now I cringe whenever I read the word.
It’s okay though, I guess, because some of my friends did a dramatic reading of it by candle light- and I think they played the piano too?- and, separately, I think they did something horrible with it on the internet? I can’t remember if they posted it on /b/ or what they did, but I do remember it was funny and almost resulted in a forced meme. Long story short, at least it was funny in the end.
