Marking Time

By Libra


I bought this many years ago while on holiday ( remember those days?) out in the Caribbean. It has little monetary value unlike an incident  earlier that day on the island of Saint Martin. 
I had wandered into a high-class jewellery shop just to marvel at the prices.
Before I knew what was happening a smooth salesman had opened a glass case and was showing me a $3,000 dollar diamond ring. I made approving noises and added:
“Unfortunately I don’t have my credit card with me.”
”That’s not a problem,” he said . “We can arrange for a taxi to take you back to your ship to collect it.”
I left. Fast.
