झुमका गिरा रे...

Macy's में, walmart में, और न जाने कहाँ कहाँ! उफ्फ!
This is so totally weird! I keep losing my ear-rings। As in, they fall off।


I think one of them is somewhere in Niagara Falls. Most beautiful black jhoomka I have ever owned :(

One is somewhere in Macy's (losing this one really broke my heart. My hubby had bought it for me, he said he had looked in like 50 different stores until he found the perfect one!)

A gold one I had since my childhood, don't know when it fell off and where.

And I dropped one today, probably in Walmart :( Another one for which I had gotten lots of compliments. (Some random woman I met on the cruise ship to Alaska, DH said that looks so pretty when I left today morning!)

Ufffff...what is it with me and them! Last weekend we were gardening, planting some new flowers. Hubby was doing all the work of course, I was removing the plants from their containers and handing them to him, and PLOP falls a ear-ring in the mud.

I am so confused !

You are not alone my friend. This is a very common situation for all women who love earrings.

But WHHHYYY? Howww?


After I lost the first one to the Falls, I made sure I had something to secure the things on my ears. So the regular "wire" ones were taken care of. Even hoops (rings which close...for the men folk here) fall off! Even the ones with their own posts in the back fall off.

I feel jinxed :(

You're not jinxed..it happens to me too :(

ohh it happens to me too! All the time..n specially in winter when i wear the coats n ear-muff.
i soooooo love my ear-rings..it makes me mad at myself! n i keep the 1 remaining ear-ring n torture myself by looking at it every once in a while...

Here is a ear-ring episode..in Dec 2006 I was at the niagra(u can imagine how cold it wld have been) n lost an ear-ring at 9 pm...looking at me feel so bad..hubby n i hunted the place in the nite using the light from his phone and we found the ear-ring! oh, how happy i was to have found the ear-ring and to have a hubby who u'stands why a ear-ring which costs 5-10 RS matters so much to me!

simple solution - buy three of each - that way you have 6 - or wear different ones on each year and cover the other eae somehow....

so they last longer - till you get bored - so you dont feel sad.

moment someone gives a compliment - remove it as it is going to fall.....

last a techie soln - install a GPS location device on each...or ask the hubby to walk 10 steps behind you - just in case.....

I am lucky in this. Till date I have lost only 1 pair of earring till date.

@Pavi, sigh...mine fell in the Niagara river :( Couldn't really risk asking the poor hubby to go retrieve it :(

@ceedy, none of these would work..
1) Didn't you know we only buy "one-of-a-kind" things. Like if we see someone else wearing the same thing, we'd goodwill ours away?
2) But then I won't get more compliments!
3) Gotta wait for such a small GPS. then this soln might work
4) Gotta send him to work so that I can buy more ear-rings, diamond ones mebbe :)

@ana, dear, how?

@keshi, sniff, sniff, I am so glad...someone out there can feel my pain!

falling earrings... have heard of falling hearts, now ear rings too :-D
simple DIY soln - once you fix teh ear ring, secure it with a drop of 'quick-fix' ;-D
or, on second thoughts, tie them with an invisible (twain like) string and attach teh string to the chain you wear.

SambY said...
