David: What A Thing Is Worth

Mom had this cheap plastic necklace, looked like it cost all of a nickel. She kept it wrapped in tissue paper inside a velvet-lined box in the bottom drawer of her jewelry case. It took me years to realize that she only wore it once a year, always on the same day.

After she died, I found the letter. From Dad, from the war, before I was born. He promised to come home safe to see her wearing what he’d won her at the fair. He never did.

I think I have a few outfits that necklace could go with.
