Not Quite Old Enough For This – Postscript
A friend considerably younger than I took umbrage – politely, of course—with my inclusion of brooches as too old for me. She has for years enjoyed brooch-embellished jackets. I concede that an unusual pin is sometimes a nice addition to one’s chest. So I withdraw that weird purple brooch, and offer this instead:
Certainly I can get consensus that watch pins are too old. My young coworkers think I am old just wearing a watch in the normal place, never mind on my bosom, since cellphones provide a constant accurate time. My cellphone is not as simple to look at as my own wrist, however.
And as a reminder of the passing of time to whoever might be facing me, well, it’s upside down.
Another discussion has led me to also include The SHAWL – a garment strangely enough both TOO YOUNG and TOO OLD for me.
