Dan FINALLY got a replacement bottle opener… I mean wedding band!
Dan lost his original band… at the lake… back in May… about 2, maybe 3 minutes after I said to him, “The water’s kinda cold… you should take your wedding ring off before you get in.” He didn’t… and now the symbol of marriage is somewhere at the bottom on Rollins lake.
We really weren’t in much of a hurry to replace the ring, until I realized he could no longer do his party trick thing where he opens beer bottles with his ring, because it’s Tungsten and they can do that. And, without his ring, we, GASP… had to use a bottle opener!!
So… over the weekend we stepped up our search. He’d narrowed it down to 2 replacement rings… one with a diamond and one without. Then, over the weekend we went up to Oregon to visit family. And, while we were at Walmart picking up some movie snacks, we stumbled across the jewelry counter… and Dan of all people… seriously… he started window shopping and saw a Tungsten wedding band… on clearance… and way less than the $300 we spent on his original. So, he tried it on. It fit. We bought it. His wedding ring replacement, at Walmart, 30 bucks, on clearance, no sales tax, because it’s Oregon… and because HE’S worth it!!
But, note to self… DO NOT lose your wedding ring, Dan will want to replace it at the Walmart.
