This story has nothing to do with my kids, but it showcases my incredibly resourceful mama skills.
Last night, I performed for the grand opening of the Porsche World Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the other musicians, a cello/guitar player, forgot to wear his cufflinks. This would've resulted in seriously floppy sleeves. We couldn't have that at such a prestigious event!
He looked in his stack of stuff he had brought and found two paperclips. "How can we turn these into cuff links?" he asked.
I looked at him and shrugged. "Do you have any tools?"
Of course he had tools. He's a guy. He pulled out his tool belt which had some pliers and wire cutters.
"Perfect," I said. "Now just straighten out the paper clips, insert them through the button holes, and we'll fasten them together."
That's exactly what we did. He straightened and inserted them. Then I took the pliers and gave them a good twist. We trimmed the access wire, and voila, we had a perfect pair of cuff links!
Mama to the rescue, again!
