In middle school, I desperately wanted a boy (any boy) to give me a mizpah charm necklace. That never happened.

What I got was a BFF gold charm from a girl and years later she wore it to my wedding, which was very sweet and thoughtful, but . . .

it still doesn't change that no boy in 7th or 8th grade thought me worthy of a symbol that demonstrated an "emotional bond between people who are separated (either physically or by death)."

I'll show them.

Now I know what to get you for Christmas. Of course, it will just remind you how unpopular you were back in the day instead of all cool and stuff like you always wanted us to think. I'll be sure that it's inscribed on one side with something that rhymes. Poets love that shit.

omg, if you'd gotten one you wouldn't have FREAKED out? i bucked when i was offered the class ring and ran like hell at when presented with a "promise ring." (oh, wait, maybe that time it was because he was doin it with another girl because he "respected me so much" he wanted to wait till we were married. what a hick!)

I should write a thank you note to all the boys that "respected me so much" in high school. :)

I was "pre-engaged" in 12th grade. Hawked the ring for a few dollars (literally) when I first moved to Virginia and needed gas money.

But I would never have hawked a mizpah -- that would have been sacred.

You were pre-engaged in 12th grade? Shocking! What happened between then and when I met you seven years ago?

I went to college and met more interesting boys.
