You know how some men used to jingle coins in their pocket?
“Look at me! I’m rich! I have a bunch of nickels and dimes in my pocket!”
And then it became cool to carry around a lot of jangling keys.
“Look at me! I’m important! I can open lots of doors!”
Now, men – at least Greek men who’ve seen Lethal Weapon III – click two tied-together marbles. Over and over. Click-click. Click-click. “Look at me! I’m dangerous! I can strangle you!”
I don’t know if they’re supposed to be worry beads or prayer beads or – I just call them balls-on-a-string. Teeny weeny itsy bitsy balls-on-a-string.
