How is it that I manage to catch each and every strand of cold on earth? As I’ve gotten older, it can almost be guaranteed that if someone around me is suffering from the common cold or flu, I soon will be, too. This time it has attacked my mind—I’m mixing up my words in a mishmash of mush. Do you know what a spoonerism is? I just learned: It’s when you accidentally switch the first letters or sounds of two words. For example: I should go and shake a tower really means, I should go and take a shower (and, I should). It’s actually pretty funny, but it can get a tad bit frustrating when it just. Keeps. Happening. And as a writer, putting words together is something I rely on to, well, live. But thankfully today, I don’t need a whole lot of words—I have pictures. Pictures of some super amazing jewels that, just as they don’t need me to drone on and on about how amazing they are, will speak for themselves pretty darn well in your store, too. Thank goodness for these beauties today—I’ll let them do the bulk of the talking while I go and nap.
