I can’t say it was nice to meet you last night at the market. I hope you are now enjoying the bracelet you stole from me. I must say, you are a good thief, swiping a $100 bracelet from my table. You have good taste, it is a lovely bracelet, so I can credit you with that. What you’ve stolen is a one-of-a-kind bracelet, handmade, which features an antique French marriage medal for Napoleon III, along with an antique pocket watch fob and a few gemstones. I should emphasise this bracelet is one-of-a-kind, and so if someone sees you with it on, they will know it is stolen. Here’s a photo to help out…
So how’s the rest of your Christmas thieving going? What did you nick for your mum? I hope she is proud of you? Best to get in early, before the final Christmas rush happens. There are thieves everywhere at this time of year.
Have a great festive season and I really, truly hope to see you next year 🙂
In fact, let’s make a deal. You can wear this bracelet until March 2012. And then, when I have my first market of the year, you can come by my table and quietly put the bracelet back. Because, no matter how much you enjoy wearing this lovely piece, and no matter how much others might admire your good taste (because I am sure you will not tell them you stole it), you will still be a thief, and nothing will have changed. A pretty bracelet will not make you a better person. But you can change something, and do a little bit of good, by returning it. And then you will make it right. OK?
