Finally Figured it Out

Back in June of 2012, I did a post called "Make an Impression."  It was about making yourself memorable to others.

At that time I talked about the PMC Connection Level 4 class that was taught by Mary Ann Devos.  (Check it out.)  I felt that there was nothing about me that made me stand out.   

The other day I was meeting with Jamie Golob, the education cordinator at the Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, Florida.  For some reason, as I was driving home from that meeting, my mind wandered again to the idea that I had nothing that made me stand out.  Then it hit me.   I do have something......... the seven rings I wear which include the "Big Honker.  They are definitely noticed and people are always commenting on them.  I hadn't been wearing them much for some reason, but I will now.  It's who I am.  (It only took me nine months to figure it out!)


(Just wish I had young hands to go with the rings...... Oh well, there are lots of years in those hands!)

Have you noticed the new trend of wearing rings that only go past the first knuckle? You have room for lots more!

No I haven't noticed that. Will have to start looking and yes I do have room for more. Will have to see what I can do about that.

Yes, Zoe, and I find rings positioned that way to be a marketing marvel of "planned obsolescence"! (At least for me, I need that (bigger) second knuckle to help hold rings on: lost rings need to be replaced....)

Thus, Alice, for your image / identity, the first thing I am seeing here are unadorned thumbs!
