Rednesday: Earrings

These red can pull tabs have been a-hangin' from my ears since 2003. 

Kids I meet usually scream at me that I am wearing a can on the side of my face, while grown-ups ask me if I made them. I am never sure what this question means and usually answer: "If by 'make' you mean, was I drunk at a BBQ and did I pull them off some cans and stick them on my earrings, then yes, I did make them."

I like them because they are red, because I would much rather recycle up than recycle down, and because of the tinkly sound they make when I'm on my bike and coasting down a hill into the wind.

Today while rushing about I was walking really fast and my earings from Israel were making that same same sound and I thought, 'have I noticed that before or is that Meg drawing my attention to it?!'

..as i type now i just wiggled my head but it didnt do the same noise..nope I hadnt noticed it before, It was your video directing my attention to it..

This ringpull idea is right up my alley. I don't think they'd tinkle any more tho.
