“P, I’m going to have to buy another watch cap,” the soldier said. “And I don’t want to. I really liked the watch cap I had. I had a Carhartt watch cap and I liked it. I really like that thing and now I am going to have to go in there and buy some bozo watch watch… some Osh Kosh B’Gosh or something equally embarrassing.”
“I’m sorry. You were fond of that thing, I could tell by the way you held it,” I said. “It was obvious you liked the thing.”
“You could tell I was fond?”
“Of course. I can tell when you have your hands on something you’re fond of.”
He laughed but I wasn’t kidding. The soldier freakishly protective of things he covets, his body language is very revealing. He always tucked that watch cap under his arm, clamped against his body where no one could get at it. This would be compared to his flinging something around (means nothing) or handling normally (utility item).
His Scorpio Moon would hate that it’s this obvious but it is.
Can any of you Tauri relate?
