Anyway, whatever the reason, bangle has a metallic taste that sets my teeth on edge; and, unless you are one of those rare people with perfectly tubular arms, they're jolly uncomfortable, too.
AND they clink and jingle all the time and scratch the furniture.
I can't deny that bangles have an impressive history, though, so perhaps they're fine if you're brought up with them. For instance, it's said to be unlucky for a Hindu married woman not to wear bangles; and actually this is quite true because her honeymoon ends when the last of her glass bridal bangles breaks.
Nevertheless, as far as I'm concerned I might as well do myself out in handcuffs and have done with it.
Sunday Rest: Word Not To Use Today: bangle. This word comes from the Hindi word bungrī, glass.
