Now let’s have a look at how they carry their keys uptown. This sleek baby is made out of solid nickel, giving it a pleasing heft in one’s hand. In fact, the label tells me that this is not even a key ring at all, no sirree – this here is a “key fob,” thank you very much. It came from Neiman-Marcus, I’ll have you know. CC, who as you may recall is a fashion instructor here in Chicago, attended a fashion show the other day at the Neiman-Marcus store on the Magnificent Mile of Michigan Avenue. Every attendee received a goodie bag filled with all sorts of useless, albeit normally expensive, items. CC offered me various items from that bag when she got home, and while I took a pass on the butt-ugly tie (which I will not deign to depict here), I leapt at this little bauble.
The label is a little hard to read in this picture, but please note that the list price for this item is $22.00. But you know what? My keys are worth it. They’ve been mighty good to me; it’s about time I was good to them. Maybe I can’t buy style and class. But I can sure let someone who doesn’t want it hand it to me.
