If it makes you feel any better, I had a similar thing happen today. I was in the music office with some other girls, including Princess Mezzodiva (amazing singer, and a really nice girl). Anyway, PM has a really good sense of style, so I pointed out that we were wearing the same earrings today (pearl studs), and that I'd gotten mine for Christmas, and they were like hers (which she'd had before), and she replied "Freaky, I think yours could be REAL.......mine aren't," and, without thinking, I replied, "They *are* real," which is true, but probably sounded snotty. I apologized immediately, of course......but, it's just one of those things I have to watch, I mean, I hadn't known that PM's earrings weren't the real deal, and I don't think it's important, but I hate saying things that imply that something of mine is better than someone else's, because having nicer things doesn't make me a better person in any way. But then, PM has an iPod, and I don't.....I could probably have one if I wanted, but I'm deliberately waiting until my Discman breaks or wears out.
