Am I wearing “couples” jewelry?

I was at work today and a guy who I hadn’t seen in a while noticed that I was wearing a silver necklace. He immediately said “You’re wearing a necklace! Does that mean that you have a boyfriend now?”

...Oh no! I didn’t know that I wasn’t supposed to wear jewelry!

I flashed to the story about the Scarlet letter... I ran through it in my head to see if there was something I had missed when I was daydreaming about playing the piano in English class....Did the “A” stand for “accessories?” I had no idea that a necklace had such implications. That sort of seems unfair! I've really enjoyed matching my purses to my outfits over the years! ...Boy I hope I meet someone so I can wear pants and a headband again! I really don’t want anyone talking about my bad single girl etiquette!
