I first learned of the red thread last month at my IF drop-in support group. Apparently, people wear a red thread around their wrists (and not just any red thread, a pomegranate-colored thread, #814 by DMC, to be exact). It's a lovely idea, really. For more info, read here.
So, anyhow, I purchased my thread immediately after learning of it, and I intend to wear it. First, I want to decorate it with cute beads and such, but once I do slip it on, one of two things are likely to happen:
a. People will think I'm into Kabbalah, which is fine, but I'm not.
b. People will ask me what it's for (as I know my shoddy craftsmanship will give away that this is a statement rather than an actual piece of jewelry).
So, what should I say? Seeing as how I'm still 'in the closet', I need to come up with something witty, while being minimally evasive. Any ideas?
I'll make sure to post pictures of my final 'creation'.
