What do They Say About the Eye of the Beholder?

I have a new piece of art. It's jewelry, sort of. At least that's how I've decided to treat it. Here it is -- my new bracelet:



I know, it's a piece of bike chain. But you have to understand that it's not just any bike chain, it's the piece that caused so much fun a few weeks ago.

There's nothing like a bracelet with no opening requiring a person to slide it on and off to remind you that the right side of your body is significantly larger than the left side of your body. It's really hard to get this thing over the right hand, but on the left, I'm convinced it will slide off of its own accord. My right foot is half a shoe size larger than the left, and let's not even discuss what that means for brasierre purchasing. Regardless, do you have one side of your body that's bigger than the other? Which side is it?

I think I have too much arm hair for that sort of piece of jewlry. I'm considering shaving it....my arm hair that is...

Ooh -- don't shave your arm hair. I had a friend in highschool that did that for prom, and it grew back thicker and she had to keep shaving it. You don't want more of your skin real estate in constant shaving mode.

I'm the opposite - my right side is smaller. Half a shoe size difference can actually make a person stumble if the right shoe is a little too big.

And I totally hear you about bra shopping.

My ears are crooked too, so I hate shopping for sunglasses as well.
