Well, when you get old senility sets in first, right? Apparently as I run this final stretch towards 40 it is all going downhill!!!
The necklace above was given to me by my partner a few years ago as a birthday present and I love it. It is huge, at least four inches, maybe six. Normally I do not like to wear large pieces of jewelry, but this one is an exception and really is one of my favorite pieces I own. It cannot be missed when I wear it – but that is not a bad thing.
Anyhow, to make a long story short, I wore the necklace over a turtleneck today and was very happy. However, when I got home I got a fright – the necklace was GONE. I started to panic. I LOVE that necklace, it was not cheap and I had no idea what on earth had happened to it or the last time during the day that I had seen it (I remembered it being on when I was at work – did it fall off at the butcher on the way home? in the car?) – Oh, WHERE on earth was it?
I started to panic, I kept feeling around my neck – NOTHING. My panic started to escalate, oh no – I would have to get back into my car and attempt to retrace all of my steps because this necklace had sentimental value and I would not let it go that easily.
And then my partner laughed. It had been turned around – it was hanging down my back…. and I did not feel it because the chain was under the turtle neck.
Doh! Bang head against wall. Yes, I am almost 40, apparently as I get closer to the day it becomes increasingly more apparent.
Today, 5 days ’til 40, I am glad I did not lose my necklace, but worried about whether or not 40 bring lost sanity!
