Recently, I went to a group lunch with 10 other women.
I wore a DUX medallion on a chain around my neck; it had been my father's medal. I was also sporting some dangly glittery half-moon ear-rings.
Several people asked to see the medallion close up. And with all eyes upon me. I reached to pull the chain up and over my face.
... and both sides of that chain caught on my ear-rings!
There was a bit of a titter from my audience as I did the untangling: it took some time. I attempted to lift the chain up from my neck again. And again. And yet again. And each time that stupid chain got hooked up on my ear-rings. My audience was in hysterics.
Embarrassment much? Yes. It's so difficult for one to act with ladylike aplomb when sitting in a posh teashop with a chain dangling across one's face and a gold medallion seemingly permanently hooked over one's nose.
