Top Ten Reasons to Try On a Class Ring…

….45 years later.

#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.

#2. It proves I obeyed my parents by not letting a stupid boy wear it and lose it.

#1. NOW it won’t slip off in the dishwater or in the river if I forget I have it on! (I’m wondering if it will EVER come off again!)

About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.
