"I" = INCOMPLETE


We went out for lunch and rushing around caused me to fail to put on my earrings. Looking in the car mirror to check my makeup the naked ears were glaringly obvious. I might as well have been completely naked.

Watch? -- check. Necklace? -- check. Rings? -- check. Earrings? -- OMG!


Our first stop was the drug store to pick up a prescription and right next to the checkout was the jewelry display. Silver earrings on sale. "Do you need a sack for these?" the clerk asked. But when she looked up she could see them already in my ears.

Does a forgetful lack of accessories ever make you feel incomplete?

  2. I have taken turns forgetting with needed things when leaving for work, n usually can't go back for them. Like the Cell phone, work shoes (going to ruin another pair or wearing slippers) Kleenex, eyedrops, reading glasses, pens, ect- n have learned to bring back-ups stored in the truck. What I hate is riding with someone else n not having a back-up for say, tylenol when I have a headache...

  3. Ha ha, you are asking the King of bling this question??? I hate it when I realise I've forgotten my 6 earrings, watch, chains etc. Normally I go back home to put them on. I just can't bare not wearing them all.

  4. Same thing - if I forget my earrings, I feel at a loss all day. I've taken to keeping a pair in my car.

  7. I have lots of jewelry (mostly I've gotten things as gifts) but hardly ever wear it. That said, when I first got married it felt weird having a ring on that finger, but now I feel naked without it.

    I have, however, nearly walked out of the house twice recently without a shirt on.

  8. Kenju – You know I think I do too Now isn’t that awful?

    Snaggle Tooth – Actually I forgot my cell phone that day also. Had I been driving, I would have probably gone back but hubby was in control of the vehicle and had his cell phone we could use. Going back for earrings would not by something he could mentally compute as justified:)

    LL Cool Joe – Well you know I thought of you first when I posted this. LOL

    Lynn – You are smart. From now on I think I’ll keep a second pair handy, just in case. If I could sleep in earrings I wouldn’t have a problem.

    Chatty Crone – Well Sandie, I don’t accessorize for the chickens and goats but going out in public demands some splash.

    Holland – Do you just wear the same pair all the time? Do you have multiple piercings in your ears? How can you sleep in earrings? Inquiring minds…..

    Riot Kitty – LOL How does one go out without their shirt on? There has to be a story there – actually two I guess. Do tell.

  9. I rarely wear jewelry - just my wedding rings and typically a pair of small gold hoop earrings that I've had for 20 years. So if I didn't have them I probably wouldn't notice for a couple of days!

  10. Lisa @ -- Thanks for visiting my blog. It is always neat to meet another chicken lover. You mean you wouldn't miss those gold hoop earrings?

  11. Dear Annie ~~ I know how you feel.
    Ever since I had a mastectomy 32 years ago, I always wear a necklace or pendant of some sort and feel naked without one. Years ago I went
    shopping with my granddaughter and forgot my shoes, so we bought a pair first thing.
    I am glad you enjoyed the jokes my friend. Take care, Love, Merle.

  12. Funny earrings are the ONLY thing that make me feel naked if I don't have them on...even if lack of clothing is present...I still ONLY feel naked with no earrings! LOL

  13. Oh my Annie, you gave in to that sudden impluse! Don't worry I won't Tsk, Tsk you. Naked ears could be just like a naked butt, best to cover it before you leave home!

  14. I forgot everything at least once. It's just part of life.

  17. Merle – Forgetting jewelry I can understand but going out without shoes…Yikes!

    Brown English Muffin – So I am assuming you wear earrings when you are naked and if you don’t wear the earrings you not only look naked but you feel naked? Are you naked a lot because you sound like an expert? LOL

    Marilyn’s Money – Didn’t you see that the earrings were on “sale”. Doesn’t that make up for the random spending?

    Cube – My list of things I forget is just getting longer and longer.

    Grammie – Sounds like there is quite a troop of us out there:)

    Shionge – Wow, where you been girl? It’s been about five months since you were around. Welcome back to commenting at least. Will you post again soon? So those are your earrings? Guess I’ll have to return them then. LOL
