A Very Opinionated Lady, Part 1 (Day 535)


I. Push Presents

“All the other gems 
are good, 
but not emeralds. 
Emeralds, to meare 
bad luck. Every time 
my mother had a baby, 
my father gave her 
a gemstone—what you call 
‘push presents,’ meant 
to be passed on, as 
engagement rings. 
The brother who got 
the emerald? He was 
married five times. 
I don’t know... 
He may be dead now.”
