How well I remember the days when my mom wore those clip-on earrings! Usually they didn't last long on her ears and she'd take them off and place them on a tabletop nearby. Her hands would rub her earlobes as if in discomfort. As a girl, I couldn't understand why she removed this bling ---to me they seemed like the height of glamour! Eventually, though, Mom got her ears pierced.
There you have it. On my wish-list-to-purchase-while-in-China are some more books (children's) and jewelry (pearls or jade) to go with these new green accessories! Wish me luck, please. In reply: m goi or do ze.
