We have started an annual tradition of renting a boat when my siblings come home for the summer. It’s something we look forward to and it’s always a fun-filled day when lots of memories are made. This year was no exception!
Ben was especially adventurous this boating trip. No speed was fast enough for him and no maneuver could flip him despite our best efforts. One trick he thoroughly enjoyed was leaning far off the tube and skimming his hands along the surface of the water. We didn’t think much of it until he woke up the next morning and noticed that his wedding ring was missing. After turning the house upside down without being able to find it, we decided that his stunts from the day before had cost him the symbol of our love and commitment to one another.
It was a sad discovery! I paid nearly $300 for that ring and he wore it just shy of 4 years. He has been walking around the streets of Florida with a naked left hand for the past couple weeks. I guess it’s time to begin our ring shopping again….
