From What, Vampires?

I decided to wear my gold cross every day of Holy Week. Not sure why, but I wanted to , and so I did. The other day at work, a lady commented on it: its very unusual. Not the cross itself, which a pretty, small simple cross, but the chain is. Its very very sparkly.

Anyway, back to my story. I explained to my customer why I was wearing it. She asked why I didn't wear it more often. "Because its gold," I explained. "I wear mostly silver jewelry."
"Then why don't you get a silver one?"
I nodded uncommittedly.
"Besides," my customer added, "the cross necklace protects you, don't you think?"

Oh yes... in my experience little inanimate objects representative of horrible torture is a strong protection from many things. After all, it's not like anyone else ever died on the cross... so the uniqueness to Jesus' sacrifice has to have magical properties rather than symbolic properties, right?

Haha I love how we had the same thought Greta. :D And Nate would know all about how crosses protect people. Why do you think I'm still human? ;)
