My Mom’s got this very cool oval-shaped peace pendant necklace. I coveted it when I was a teenager. Actually, I still covet it. Apparently my sister also coveted it. Mom’s been wearing it lately, and is therefore smug that she didn’t give it to either of us.

Anyway, it seemed like a pretty good idea, wearing a peace symbol, so I dug mine, which is merely round and not nearly so cool, out of its resting place and found a chain for it, and put it on. All the cool kids are doing it.
