Irony or escape clause?

The Boss Lady might be off the hook. After a dozen years, she might be a free woman again. I have lost my wedding ring.

You see, I am certainly a Jedi level mis-placer of things, so it it kind of hard to believe, but this might be the first time that I lost my ring. Probably because I never take it off.

Anyways, the ironic part is that I noticed my ring missing while we were playing at the park this morning. Right after I found a nice silver ring and I had asked all of the moms in the park if they had lost that ring.

I was trying to decide if I should leave the silver ring on the bulletin board, or leave a note and see if the owner calls in a few days. I decided to leave the note since I was sure the silver ring would disappear from the park memo board in short order.

As I was looking in my car for a pen, I noticed my ring was gone. Since I have been in 6 states in the past week, I am thinking that unless it is in the wife's car, it would be a miracle to find my wedding ring now.

Now it is tough decision time for The Boss Lady. Buy another $100 ring for AtHomeDaddy, or just put a stop to the madness and make a clean break...

Rick doesn't wear one anymore. After the original one stopped fitting (I wonder why?) we never replaced it. My Dad did not wear one while I was growing up so it doesn't bother me. He knows he's married and a ring doesn't change that. Sorry, Boss Lady, the ring loss doesn't get you off the hook. Afterall, you stil have the one in his nose. Hee, hee!

Personally, I think the boy should go local-style. I'm thinking ring finder tattoo. Maybe a nice multiple skin-piercing? Perhaps hemp rope with an onyx? So many options. I guess if he returned from 'Bama, I'll stick around another dozen years or so. Especially since he's taking the kids camping Friday night and I get the house to myself!

Okay, I am confused.... You said you never take the ring off, so does that mean your finger suddenly lost weight and the ring slipped off unnoticed?

I'm thinking you lose your finger too!

Harness your Jedi skills to use the Jedi mind trick. When Boss Lady asks you where the ring is, wave your hand in front of her face and tell her you're wearing it.

Yes, I'm wondering how it came off also. Were you mixing something with your hands and took it off for a minute?
After 40 years of marriage, I can say a little band of gold isn't needed to make a man feel married. Either he does or he doesn't, right?
J quit wearing one because he knew at least 3 people who lost fingers because of it when working around machinery, acid or just a horse trailer.

Lost weight? Yeah. No.

I don't know how it slipped off unnoticed. But it is gone.

Unlike my spare tire weight.
