Wanna know a funny story? Yesterday I threw away my wedding ring!
(Don't you love how that was totally "Pulp Fiction" and I just told you the end of the story at the beginning? Well, that's not totally the end... Anyways...)
I was getting ready for work and decided to clean my ring (shown in that lovely picture on my wedding day. Do you love it?) with Elva's Jewel Joy.
Oh man, just the name of that product cracks me up! Does it bring the customer joy? Or what about the jewels? Or maybe it just brings Elva joy to know her product is cleaning so many jewels. I bought it last year at the Big Fresno Fair (woo! I can't wait for the fair this year! I wonder if Elva peddles her wares at other fairs?) and the girl who sold it to me reminded me exactly of Deb from Napoleon Dynamite. She was too funny. But instead of telling me how boondoggle keychains are "a must-have for this season's fashion," the Jewel Joy girl told me with the most serious expression how the jewel joy would work for all my jewel needs and "what more could I want" or something to that effect. Well, it was funny, trust me.
This is how you clean your ring with the squirt bottle of Jewel Joy: squirt it on your jewelry, rinse with water and then dry with a tissue. So I did all that and left the ring in the tissue while I finished getting ready cuz I didn't want to dirty it with hair product, etc.
Then I was in a rush to get out the door, late as always and I forgot to put my ring back on. At work my finger felt naked without my ring- my hands looked so single! Haha. When I got home I went to find the tissue with my ring in it-- and the tissue was gone!
Turns out that in my rush out the door I must have seen the tissue on the bathroom counter and done some last minute tidying by throwing it right into the trash! So, (eww) I started sifting through the tissues on the top of the trashcan and I found my ring. It was a funny feeling to see my ring in the trash can!
John didn't think it was so funny though and told me, "You know, if you loose it, we're not just going to buy you another one." Oh, Johnny... Haha.
Well, thank goodness we're not so much neat freaks because I wouldn't have thought it was so funny if one of us had taken out that trashcan! (hah, fat chance of that!) Oh man. That reminds me of this past Christmas Eve when I was digging through the dumpster of our apartment at midnight, looking for my paycheck and a bonus of two $100 bills. That's a whole other story!
Oh man. Sounds like I should be more careful with my stuff! I'm such a scatterbrain sometimes. At least that fault of mine makes for some good stories!
Hope you guys are having a great Tuesday!
p.s. That picture was taken by Jimaie, one of my besties! She captured some great pictures at the wedding! Seriously, she should pursue photography!
p.p.s. I swear I don't work for Elva! Haha. Sounds like I'm a little Jewel Joy infomercial, huh?!
