Other than clothes, that is.



I had to report for jury duty last December. Because of security restrictions, I had to leave my cellphone in the car because it has a camera. Boy, did I feel "naked" without it. I sat in that courthouse all day wishing I had it with me. I think it's kind of a silly feeling, because up until about ten years ago, I managed very nicely without a personal phone; I just made sure that when I left the house, I had enough change for a pay phone and the phone company's calling card in my wallet. I still carry around an eensy-weensy address book, but I don't add to it. Now, and because I don't have a PDA, whenever I get a new phone number to remember, I put it right into my cellphone, even though I'm not necessarily going to call that number from the cellphone.



I also feel "naked" without earrings. When I was about 18 or 19 (I can't remember my exact age), my sister surprised me for my birthday by taking me to the mall, where a jewelry store had a nurse on duty that day offering free ear piercings with an earring purchase. Ever since then, I cannot go out of the house without earrings. Yesterday morning, for the first time in about 15 years, I forgot to put earrings on when I got dressed. My ears felt REALLY naked! I'll even wear some small studs if I don't feel like wearing a fancy pair of earrings, just "to keep the holes open". I like earrings.



OK, so what about the rest of you? What do you have to have with you or on you so you don't feel "naked"?



Again, I meant other than clothes.

I'm like you with the earrings.



Now that I'm engaged, I can't stand not having my ring on. I had to go without it for a couple of hours one day while it was being resized and it just didn't feel right.



I had my cellphone cut off while I was abroad and haven't bothered having service restored yet, so I've adjusted to life without it, but I used to hate not having it with me at all times.



I also feel naked without a hair tie around my wrist, "just in case", even if my hair is already tied back with a different hair tie.

I hate going places without my chapstick/lip gloss. My lips get dry really quickly.



emmm....there's not much else I really feel naked without. I don't like to leave the house without my debit card and cellphone, but I don't feel weird without them. oh! actually, I really don't like to go anywhere without gym shoes on. For one, I hate heels. But I'm always worried there will be some emergency like I'll be chased by some psycho so I like to have my gyms so I can outrun them.

Amy, I'm with you - besides my GLASSES which I can't function without, my cellphone and earrings definitely... my kids are constantly on my case, that my earrings are "boring" because I have worn basic little studs for years... I take them out when on a long phone call but HAVE to put them back as soon as I'm done...



Also my water bottle and my wallet I guess... I don't go anywhere without those either...

Ring is a good one. I don't have an engagement ring but I've had the same celtic ring on my finger for 4 years (from when I almost moved to the UK) Kind of a reminder...which is strange because I'm in a comitted relationship but I still wear it.

I feel naked without my collar or engagement ring. It just bothers the heck out of me when I don't have them on . . .

Oh yeah, the watch. I don't have a watch tan, but on the occasions that I forget to put my watch on, I go like this: because I keep looking at my wrist expecting to see the time.

I feel naked all the time no matter what I'm wearing. I guess I need to take up herb gardening or water aerobics or something to fill that void in my life.

I'd say watch, earrings and toenail polish. Pretty basic stuff.

I always wear my necklace and a ring -- I need them for fidgeting purposes. I've rarely forgotten to wear one or the other, but when I do (or when I have a show and I have to take them off) I feel really uncomfortable.



I usually have a hair band around my wrist. I've gotten less attached to that, but I have long hair and it comes in handy.



I always have a pen, at least a little piece of paper, and I almost always have a book with me. Pretty much anytime I go anywhere that isn't running.

My watch and my ring. Especially my ring. It's a silver band with celtic knotwork on it that I got when I was 18. I've more or less worn it every day since then, and it only comes off when I shower or am doing something with my hands that might get it dirty or ruin it.

Oh, I forgot! The heart necklace The_Gazumper gave me. If I don't wear it, I feel really uneasy, like something bad might happen. Before he gave me that one, I wore the amethyst one he gave me every day.

Heh..I have that too: a nice white, watch-shaped strip across my wrist.



I don't go anywhere without sunglasses. I wear them in summer, winter, morning, evening, whenever. Ironically, I've now lost (including the pair 3 weeks ago) approximately 4,367 pair of them. My eyes are super sensitive to the sun, but my sis jokes that I wear them to look cool. Heh.

I'm so used to lugging my backpack and guitar around school that whenever I go out anywhere, I end up getting that "naked" feeling and end up saying to myself, "Uh oh. Where's my backpack?!" before realizing that I didn't bring one with me...

Ewww. Tom, thats way more than I wanted to know. I'll make sure to avoid any stuffed animals the next time I'm at your place









I used to feel nakie without the ring my then bf had given me. I also used to have a chapstick fetish . Now I can't think of anything other than my contact lenses that I never leave home without.
