I have this favorite pair of earrings. Now, they’re nothing special; they’re not expensive; and they’re probably worth, well, nothing. But I love them. I like their dangly-ness.I like the compliments they always get. I like the little bit of oomph they add to an outfit.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with this special pair of ear baubles.
They’ve been to Bon Jovi concerts.
They’ve been to numerous holiday celebrations, including July 4 on the riverfront in Nashville.
They have frequently accessorized my work attire.
They’ve celebrated my birthday.
They’ve even been my companions for a quiet night at the house.
I’ve even worn them while working the exhibit hall and hanging out with Flatfoot 56 at YS in San Diego.
The point? I love these earrings. They’re my favorite, favorite accessory. And today . . . today, dear friends, they fell apart. Those dangly delights that I’d wear at every opportunity? Yeah, they now look like this:
You see, that part on the left side is supposed to be one whole piece. And it’s now two. My favorite earrings have finally given out. And I miss them already.
I’m making it my mission to find a replacement pair. Because this is a sad, sad day, my friends. 😦
