Today I threw my wedding ring away

Oops.

Honestly, all I did was dry my hands with the paper towels provided in the gents, giving them a good rub all over. Then I used a second towel to clear up residual damp patches, and realised how light and airy my left-hand ring finger felt.

I peered into the bin of crumpled up damp paper towels and something gleamed back at me, so it wasn't too hard to retrieve. Must be more careful in future.

I thought fingers got gnarled and knobbly with increasing age. Mine seem to be slimming down.

    There really should be a handbook detailing the risks involved in marriage so you can prepare for this kind of situation!

  2. Absolutely. It could also mention the first thing I noticed about married life that was different to bachelorhood - wedding rings tap against the gear stick when you shift gears.

  3. If you've been losing weight and the weather's cold then your fingers will shrink. My eternity ring is quite loose at the moment and I really don't want to lose it.

  4. Thank you. I shall fixate on the losing weight part because it makes me feel smug.
