Getting ready to write for whitewash I searched the word definition for some inspiration and found out something I didn’t know. Growing up anytime we played a game (typically cribbage) where someone walked away with a win, we always said the person skunked the loser, especially if their score was zero. We applied it to all walk away wins, but that is also apparently an informal definition of a whitewash.
So, as I get ready to clean and repair my Dad’s house, I may have to think of whitewashing the walls; that is after we clean off years of nicotine stains. But there is nothing about Dad’s past that will need to be whitewashed or covered up. And I will always remember the fun games we used to play fondly; even the ones where he whitewashed me.
That about covers everything… a real whitewash write.
