The 12 Days of Christmas: Day 9-------
This Christmas, my boyfriend asked me for a tree saw. Not lying. “I don’t like surprises,” he said. “I want something I need. I need a tree saw.”
But you know who does like surprises? Me. Despite the many blissful hours of branch trimming I’m sure that tree saw would have provided, my musician boyfriend will be getting jewelry instead. We’ve already cornered the market on pinky rings during holidays past—the better to provocatively shred that bass with—so this year I was thinking earrrings. I pierced his ear last last New Year’s (in the bathroom at a Hard Rock hotel, no less—so cliché), and he’s been trying to borrow my diamond studs ever since. Seeing as how how I’m not particularly excited by the idea of lending them out—he loses things on tour—I figured these Eddie Borgo cone studs would be a suitable alternative. For both of us.
