feelin’ moody.


guess what’s back?

or maybe never left.

fashion fad of the 70s

a mood ring

popped up on my screen

when scrolling through amazon

ย had one in high school

loved it

all my friends had one

we were constantly

comparing them

trying to get ours to change

to match the desired color/mood

slowly over time

our rings

broke, got lost, were given away

we returned to

just talking about

how we were feeling

not needing the rings anymore

but for a while

they were really something.

(in case you’re wondering, i’d be in the blue range right now, relaxed and calm)

(what color would you be on the mood meter?)

“i don’t need a moon ring, i have a face.”

  1. I have always said that I’d lose at poker because I do not have a poker face! And my mood ring had a big honking stone and looked trashy! I’ve finally reached the age where I’m permitted to tell anyone EXACTLY how I’m feeling – and with no filters! HA HA HA

  2. Yellow. I’m getting a hip X-ray tomorrow. To get in the right attitude I’m listen to Cypress Hill, “When the shit goes down, you better be ready.” Hopefully by this time tomorrow I’ll be home. I won’t know the results, but at least I did it and maybe my Mood Ring will be green.

  3. I remember elementary kids (usually older) wearing these to school. My mood continues to hover around where I like it to beโ€”generally upbeat and happy.
