#10. I’m proud of my connection to the high school, even though it didn’t turn out to be my alma mater.
#9. If I frequented bars, I could spin it around to look like a wedding band to ward off unwanted attention.
#8. If I frequented bars, I could spin it around to look like a wedding band to attract non-commital attention.
#7. It coordinates with my other jewelry. It’s all old.
#6. It works with most outfits in my closet. They’re all old.
#5. It’s an ego booster because it still fits.
#4. It will fool people into thinking I’m organized because I still have it.
#3. It could get quick cash in a pinch from a pawn shop because it’s the only gold I have.
