I prayed it would never happen. Every morning I'd check to make sure but despite months of training and preparing it finally happened.
I forgot my wedding ring at home!
I'm not of the variety to feel like once that thing was put on my finger it should never come off. In fact it comes off at least once a day, but it has a permanent residence in our bathroom every night for sleepy time. I have a deep fear of catching one of the prongs on something and promptly shredding our blankets better than a pack of small dogs with an afternoon to themselves.
But in the 6 months since getting married (and adding on a year of being engaged, let's face facts it's basically the same ring) I had not once forgot to fix it upon my finger as soon as I was awake. Not until yesterday.
I had to spend all my very busy day typing up very fancy scientific stuff without my ring providing a familiar pressure to the sides:I missed my poor old ring while taking a big swig of water to try and combat the 90 degree day: I even missed my ring when I'd inextricably raise my hand up to the sky to rejoice in the bright blue sky. Yeah, that works. Why not?As soon as I got home I dashed to the bathroom and secured that ball and chain back onto my all important finger (it's the best one for getting into pudding cups).
Does anyone else take their ring off to sleep or for any other reason? Have you forgotten it for a whole day before and slowly gone stark raving mad?
