Stroller Derby has a funny ongoing set of articles about the crap jewelry out there being offered for Mother's Day.
And I agree, that crap is FUU-uuuuugly!! Although I have to fess up that Sarge and I bought his mom and grandmother those birthstone pendants.
I remember the first Mother's Day after having Piko de G, Sarge and I were reading the Sunday paper, and I was looking at the advertising inserts. I warned him that he should never, ever, EVER! even think about buying me a "#1 MOM" anything. Barf. I would much rather prefer a bag of Lindt Dark Chocolate truffles. BLUE!! BLUE WRAPPER!!
Actually don't get me jewelry ever. I know, I'm crazy!
I'm not saying that Sarge has bad taste in jewelry, that is simply not the case. He has a very simple classic taste, and chooses items that have a longevity to them. And, it's not like I don't like jewelry, I like it very much. The thing is that I already have a ring for each hand, a very nice Hawaiian Bracelet(though it does not say Kuuipo), and some great pendants and chains. I'm afraid if I wear too much jewelry I'll end up looking like the teller at my bank. She has a ring(sometimes several) on each finger of both hands, about 30 bracelets on each arm, and enough bling around her neck to make Mr. T jealous. Not so much the look I'm going for. Jewelry is also such an expensive gift, that's a lot of money to spend on something I might not like, or use too often.
If you want to spend some buck on me, and make me happy buy me this, and give me a whole, uninterrupted day to go crazy on it! YEAH!
I'm so easy.
