A Bad News For Mommy

I received some sad news on my way home from college. I no longer have my beautiful wedding ring and band to put on my finger. Here is the story. Jane is me.

Jane decides to clean her rings.
Jane puts the rings in the cup with soapy water in the kitchen.
Jane forgets about the rings.
In the morning, husband sees a cup with dirty water and dumps it in the sink.
In the evening, while Jane is in school, mom cooks dinner and washes dishes. Yes, she turns on the disposal.
Mom pulls out my rings. All banged up. No diamond.
Jane comes home and is handed an envelope by daughter labeled" A bad news for mommy" with the things in side.

What can I say. At least it was a group effort. Initiated by my stupidity.

Jane (holding pieces of precious metals): Well, now you know what to get me for Valentine's Day.
Husband: Yes, another disposable ring.
Jane: Right. I sure deserve it.

On the other hand, if I ever get to crash the Novyi Russkiy (New Russians) or United Arab Emirates party, I will be completely honest, when while contributing to the conversation, I will add that I too, have thrown diamonds down the drain.


  1. I so apologize for your ring, and i am glad that you are not too sad about it, things happens.
    My apartments back in Russia was robed once, and all my jewelery got stolen - everything i have been collecting since 15 year old :)
    I hope you ll get a new ring soon.

  2. Oh my goodness what a story. That is something that would have totally happened to me. At least the marriage is between you and your hubby joined by God .......rings are just metal.

    I am so happy to be back blogging. I have missed your beautiflu writing and wonderful stories. My blogging friends are so GREAT to me!

  3. Tina, welcome back to the blogosphere! I look forward to reading your always clever and funny posts.
