I’ve been having an existential crisis about jewelery. Since it doesn’t actually change anything significant about the wearer’s appearance–not his or her complexion, face shape, or coloration–what’s the point? An unattractive person will just look like an unattractive person wearing jewelery.
But then I realized: at least it gives people *something* pretty to look at when they look my direction.
(I do realize this is a new low in self-deprecation for me. Sometimes it’s worth it for a joke.)
