So, most of you probably don’t know this, because you mainly only know my cyberspace self.  I wear a necklace that sports a domino.  It was a gift from a friend and is pretty damn awesome if I must say so myself.  Well, I think it’s awesome and that’s really all that matters in the end.  Right.  So anyhoo, it’s 5-3 and has some symbolic meaning that involves numerology, which I won’t go into right now.  Mainly I wear it though, because I like dominoes, and I like things that are unique.

Obviously, since I’ve been here it’s been quite the conversation starter, as dominoes are a popular past time. The most entertaining and confusing conversations go a little some like this:

Random Gas Station attendant/supermarket cashier/person in line at the bank: Can eye have yuh domino?

Me: <laughs> No.

Random:  Why?

Me: Uh.. cuz it’s mine?

Random: <confused look, wonders why they can’t have stranger’s domino>

Me: <confused look, wonders why they think I’d give a stranger my domino>

Random: <awkward silence>

Me: <awkward silence>

Wearing this has also landed me in random domino games where I’ve rightly got my ass kicked.  My defense is that I know a different variation of the game, since there are so many, and I have a hard time keeping track of the new rules.

I need to warm up to that stuff, you know?

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
