At various times in my life, I have loved wearing earrings. I had a good friend who got her ears pierced when she was around fifty and she went wild with earrings and I enjoyed shopping with her and made sure to wear mine regularly.
Then I sort of just paused, wearing mine about once a week to make sure my piercings didn’t close up.
While working as an acupuncturist, I worked in a clinic where my officemates were very fashionable. It made me want to be more fashionable so I started wearing earrings more often, typically every day I went in.
Now, I work from home. Now, I try and wear them once a week to keep the piercings from closing. I normally try to wear them on Tuesdays because I rarely have chiropractic appointments (where dangly earrings can cause issues) or even acupuncture appointments. But I forget often.
Which means I am wearing them today. I happened to have a shirt on with purple which allowed me to wear my favorite purple earrings. I don’t often get to do that so maybe forgetting isn’t always a bad thing.
