Ok, so take a look at this. It's a neck accessory from Sruli Recht
that's made from bird wings.
It's a piece that's totally arbitrary and serves no purpose except for decoration and looks really strange. And yet it sits right next to a necktie, which is equally
arbitrary and yet I don't think twice about it because I've been conditioned my whole life to think Ties Are Normal.
In an alternate universe, the birdwings could have been the Normal accessory. I could have been suiting up for a job interview and trying to choose the perfect pair of wings to go with my suit. And then I'd hop online and wince at a Sruli Recht Silk Band.
That's my omg society moment for the day.
