the smell of my desperation has become a stench

A big ole necklace

I’m not even sure how to describe what this necklace is made out of, something resembling wood if wood were semi-transparent, but Carol gave it to me for my birthday. I believe she picked it up at Macy’s when we were in San Francisco a few weeks ago, although I cannot find it on their website. And even though I don’t frequently wear necklaces, this one fits just about everything in my wardrobe. I love wearing it mostly with white t-shirts. It’s incredibly long, and I could probably wrap it around my neck four or five times. You can see it live in action here in this video of Jon posing with a roasted chicken foot.
