(Husband) Ring Ring Go Away
My ring is stuck on my finger. At first I thought,"Oh, my finger is a little swollen right now. I'll try again later." Well, later came and it still didn't come off. Then I thought, "What does it really matter? It's not like it feels uncomfortable." Well, later it did feel uncomfortable because I realized I didn't have a choice in the matter.
I told Daisy who asked, "Why would you want your ring off?" Fair question.
"I don't know. It's starting to bother me that I don't have the choice. And with that, my inability to choose wants me want it off all the more."
I tried the grimace and pull method.
I then tried the lotion and pull method.
I then my finger in cold ice water for ten minutes and then pulled.
Daisy's friend visited, we talked, had a few beers, she plastic wrapped my finger, virgin oiled the plastic wrap, and twisted/pulled until my finger turned white.
I visited a friend of mine, we watched the game, had a few beers, he weaved dental floss around my finger, twist/pull, and my finger turned purple.
Granted, I've gained a few pounds but not enough to make my digits little sausages. Any suggestions or do I have to get this cut off by a jeweler?
