If you receive something and are clueless as to what it is or what to do with it, do you throw it away or create your own uses? Yeah, me too.
I had to buy new reading glasses last week.
My other pair broke and I was shamed at work for Erkeling them up with transparent (not so) tape.
I don’t buy my readers from the glasses store, but get them at the dollar store, drug store, roadside vendor, or my co-worker’s desk.
One must take opportunities when they are presented.
As a bonus I got this great string, with a purple flowered open cut square on it.
Before I removed the string and square and saw what it wasn’t, I thought it was an old fashioned glasses chain to keep me from losing or misplacing my glasses. That would have been a great idea and freebie.
After seeing the square I thought it was a ‘fashion backward’ necklace.
I currently own fashion forward jewelry.
Tons of it.
With real jewels.
In gold, platinum, and sterling silver.
I wouldn’t wear a purple, cut-out plastic square with flowers and sparkles on it.
What would be the point?
I’ve pondered on this for quite some time and have come to the conclusion I need to consult with others to figure out what this sparkly plastic square might be.
Friend number one, who requested to remain nameless, said it’s a nipple frame.
Friend number two, also nameless and a failure in geometry, believes it is an archaic geometry tool.
CeeCee, the only friend with a name, said it’s a measuring device to see what size plate is needed in the mammogram machine. I think her thoughts run along the lines of what friend number one said.
Acquaintance number one said she hasn’t a clue and doesn’t want to know.
Sister number three said it’s used to measure okra and if the okra doesn’t fit then the okra isn’t fit – to be eaten.
Co-worker number seven said it’s a popcorn target. If you can get it through the target you should be able to get it into your mouth.
Clay said something about horses but I didn’t pay attention.
Aunt Maybelline said it’s half of a pair of earrings and if I find the other one could she have them, puhlease.
Jody said it’s ugly and she didn’t really care.
I’m so confused right now I’m going with Jody’s answer. I only hope I didn’t pay extra for the stupid thing.
