What does it say about you when one of the highlights of your year is buying new work gloves because last year's gloves finally have little holes in the fingers? And what does it mean when you are beyond thrilled that they were out of plain tan leather, but they had turquoise suede?
I dunno; I'm afraid to give it much thought.
Still, when you wear your gloves as much as I do and you need them to keep your hands warm and protect them (as opposed to wearing them because they match your outfit) they become really important. And if they can be functional AND look pretty? Well, that's a win-win for sure. In the end, it feels nice to be thankful for simple things. They happen so much oftener than the complex ones.
