I lost my T & C bracelet...
The Tiffany & Co. Venetian Link bracelet that I've had for more than 10 years is now with some other lucky guy (or maybe girl).
I must have dropped it at the gym locker room in my haste to leave the gym and head to church for the anticipated Mass. I realised that it was missing in my pockets when I was already at the bus stop.
Two things made me choose not to go to the gym to look for it: 1.) It was more important for me to get to church before Mass. I wanted to get a good seat close to the altar. 2.) I have so much trust in Singapore that I felt someone would fine the bracelet and return it to the gym counter. Haha!
Come Sunday, I called the gym again to check if the bracelet was returned. The girl on the other end of the line gave the sad news that the bracelet was neither found nor did anyone return it.
Okay, I was a bummed that I lost the bracelet. More than it being a gift from the first ex, I love, love, love that bracelet because it's been with me for more than a decade now. I am so used to having it on my left wrist. I usually wear two bracelets on my left wrist and two on my right wrist. On the right wrist are a bracelet from my Mom and a wristband that Tipz gave me ages ago. On the left wrist are bracelets from the exes. Haha!
Surprisingly, I didn't mourn the loss of the bracelet for so long. I got over losing it after a day or two. I dunno. I guess there was a part of me that read it as a way of being freed from the past? Haha! Also, it was a good exercise in strengthening my will against sentimentality and materialism.
Alright, I didn't succeed in the latter. Or maybe, the universe really just wanted to set me completely free from that past by leading me to the exact same bracelet. Haha! It's a bit vague, I know. I designed it that way.
Right now, all I can say is I hope someone is enjoying that much loved Tiffany bracelet. It's a classic. May the good things from that relationship be passed on to whoever is wearing it now...
