Figuratively Literal

glitter

“She leaves a little SPARKLE wherever she goes” is a figurative phrase plastered on a sign that hangs in my office in all its sparkling, glittery glory.  And what a joyous moment when the figurative becomes literal.

My phone case is broken.

Surely, you are able to make the connection between how the signage and the broken case are related.  NO?  Allow me to explain further . . .

My (now) broken phone case is glittery AF.  It was filled with water and had pink beads and pink sparkles floating around inside (see below)!

Anyone who knows me, has swapped with me, or has merely just read any of my profiles: swap-bot, IG, sendsomething, Postcrossing, etc. is keenly aware that I. LOVE. ME. SOME. GLITTER.

Months ago, the water within the case dried up, and I now have stuck on, flaky glitter bits as opposed to whirling and swirling sparkles.  Recently, I must have dropped my phone because the case has a crack, said crack is leaking bits of glitter, and said glitz is left wherever I go.

The figurative phrase, “She leaves a little SPARKLE wherever she goes” is my reality, literally!

. . . and it’s amazing.
