Is there anything better than a present that is also a surprise? That’s what happened to me this week, when my friend Jennifer stopped by with a little Happy Birthday box.
Jennifer and I both have end-of-October birthdays, which means we also share the astrological sign, Scorpio. About this, Jenn and I (along with firey Scorpio-sister Lorie Gardner) are really quite serious. Jenn remembered that long, long ago I made a joke** about getting the venom-stingered Anthropod tattooed right on my forearm where it could easily be seen. (**This may or may not have been a joke. At the time seemed like a good idea to warn The Unsuspecting, since we Scorpios are rather passionate, complicated beings.) Of course I am never getting a tattoo, as you know. So Jenn thought this bracelet might be a good substitute.
It is perfect.
It is also a wonderful reminder to me of the connection I have, dating back many, many years, to a treasured friend I don’t see often enough.
And so inspired by Jenn and the the surprise of the Scorpio Bracelet, I vow to plan a little surprise gift for someone I care about every month during 2012.
Won’t that be fun?
