THE INCREDIBLE JOURNEY OF ONE OF THE FEW CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS I HAVE OWNED
*December 2000. Whilst living in New Mexico, I purchase a small spiral-shaped christmas ornament made from some kind of dried grass stalk or bamboo. I'm not decorating really, but bought a number of little kitschy things from the tourist trap of Old Mesilla Village near Las Cruces.
*January 2001 - November 2009. Ornament bides time in a box amongst a few other unused christmas decorations, getting moved from house to house, and even sitting in storage for a few years.
*December 6, 2009. Nearly a decade after acquisition, ornament is liberated and allowed to fulfill its life purpose via placement on a christmas tree.
*December 8, 2009. Ornament is destroyed by remorseless cat.
