How I Gave Up Earrings and Found Them Again
DeeDee over at It Coulda Been Worse was talking jewellery a while ago. And how she never wears any until her kids tried to make her look like Tammy Faye.

I know what she means. When I was younger I used to buy my mother hideous jewellery, too. For some reason I got it in my head that my mother loved earrings shaped like roses. I don't know why I thought that, but I did. So for about four years straight, for every birthday and Mother's Day, I bought her awful rose earrings. And to her credit, she wore them.

Like DeeDee, though, I stopped wearing jewellery when the kids were really little. The children used to pull on my earrings (which HURT!) so I gave up. I didn't want to look like one of those African tribes with huge holes in her lobes, so I thought I'd give my ears a rest.

Then, when the girls grew older, I found that miracle of miracles my holes had not closed up.

And for the last five years I’ve been collecting little pieces of jewellery. Nothing expensive, just cute. And now I actually have choice! Because jewellery doesn’t seem to go out of style. And if you buy three pieces a year for thirty years, suddenly you have ninety pieces! Think of how great you’ll look in that old age home!

Even if you do take a few years off of wearing jewellery now.

I like earrings. The only reason I don't wear them is because I can only afford the *really* cheap ones right now which seem to react as if I have put an infected piece of medical waste in my earlobes. They get red and painful instantly. I hope one day I can buy real gold or silver earrings without feeling horrible pangs of guilt that I should be spending the money on something we need.
