So the top 2 baubles on this necklace are from Uruguay, the bottom is an hors d'oeuvre pick my mom's had forever. I showed her this to see if she'd recognize it and she said- 'That's the pick whatshisface brought me from Spain 25 years ago!' Oops. But she actually liked the necklace. A rare event.
Didja know hors d'oeuvre means 'apart from the main work'? Once long ago, my mom, a doctor, was at a fancy dinner for some hospital something and this old big-shot in the hospital kept flirting with mom. He offered to get her a plate of food. Mind you, Mom's English often goes haywire. Intending to say, "No, thanks, I've already had too many hors d'oeuvres." My mother actually said, "I've already had too many ordeals."
