So I recently got some new specs. Two pairs. Because I'm that old. One pair for reading. One pair for getting through the day without falling over or having a car crash.
The latter pair cost an arm and a leg, and comes complete with designer label... among other things.
Starting from top left of the picture and working our way down we have:
- The case, with a Velcro strap thingy which can convert into a nifty little handle (although I can't think of a single situation in which I would need to use a handle to carry my glasses case!),
- the specs themselves, all gorgeous and pink,
- a little booklet, containing the guarantee information in about a gazillion languages,
- a little lens cleaning cloth, pristine white (with logo, of course) in a little plastic bag, and...
Let's take a closer look at the mystery item.
It's a little resealable plastic bag containing:
Here we have about 25cm (10" give or take) of cat gut and about 15cm (6") of 4mm wide, white florist's ribbon. There are no instructions, no labels.
I have posted that last picture on Facebook and Twitter, but no-one has yet said, "Oh yes! I know what that is. It's a...." One person did suggest that it was meant for running repairs in the future, which is entirely possible, but I can't imagine what repairs I might carry out using these bits and bobs. I have visited the D&G site (which takes quite a while to load), but there doesn't seem to be a page on which I can find the purpose of these items.
I hate not knowing stuff!
Do I throw these things away? Do I store them in my jewellery box?
