The QVC host just went into an explanation for why you should buy this special gold jewelry.

Paraphrased, her reasoning basically went like this, "You can tell a lot about someone by the gift they give you. Gold jewelry is a special gift. If someone gets you gold jewelry, you know they think you're someone special. It's not like if someone gets you a blender for Christmas. If they get you a blender (not that anything's wrong with a blender), they see you as a practical person. It's not like if they buy you this gold jewelry."


I get that there is a difference between a blender and jewelry (and yes, the blender was the example she used). But if a blender means you're a practical person, then jewelry means... what? I don't get it. How do you complete the comparison? If you get jewelry, you're not a practical person? Do people not want to be practical? Confused...
