Digression #1 The Red Bracelet, or why I love Oscar

This is a frivolous digression from my writing blog.  Oscar de la Renta's facebook page offered bangle bracelets  with writing on them, and as a "lover of words," I succumbed to my impulse purchase gene and bought one.  The phrase written on a red one was, "I have the memory of a mosquito.  Love, Oscar."  How could I resist?  How did he know he voiced my theme song? The bracelet arrived by Fed Ex, encased in a drawstring bag with three perfume samples included.  I was transported to femininity heaven.  First rule of retail (not only retail), make the customer feel special.
