Trevor likes to leave his wedding ring lying around. I have a friend who once told me a story about how her husband had a habit of continually leaving his ring laying about, and she had told him she didn’t like that very much, but one night they were out at the bar and got up to leave and she noticed his ring on the bartop so….

…she picked it up, walked outside, and threw it down a storm drain.

She did so while saying it clearly didn’t mean that much to him, so it shouldn’t be a big deal. She was pissed. He was pissed, too, but I’m pretty sure you can’t top a lady who is willing to throw your wedding ring down the drain to make a point.

Anyway, I might be a little fuzzy on the exact details, but that’s the gist of the story.

Now, I realize most people hearing this anecdote will be like “geez, that’s a little extreme”, but there is something seriously appealing to me about this story. I feel a kindridship with this friend, and I remember just being in awe of her when she first told me this story. I felt this strange mix of respect and intimidation – like “man, I really don’t want to get on your bad side, but…you go, girl!”

So, anyway, Trevor leaves his ring lying around all the time – most often in the bathroom before he goes to bed. It’s loose-fitting, so he takes it off when he stands over the sink getting ready to go to bed. It would be different if this is where the ring lives when it’s not on him – but it’s not. It lives on his bedside table when not living on him. And let’s not even get started on the whole “taking it off in the first place” thing (I never take mine off).

Needless to say, I am not going to throw it down a storm drain. But I have decided I’m just going to do weird things with it and take photos.

Yep, that’s your ring in my mouth, babe.

Here I am pretending I am a bull. If I could have actually put it in my nose, I would have

And this is a dramatic reenactment of what happened when I almost accidentally (I swear!) dropped it down the sink:

And here’s what I imagine my face would have looked like immediately after it had gone in, if it had in fact gone in:

But, luckily, the ring did not fall down the sink – and I hope to have many more (hopefully more creative) photo shoots with Trevor’s ring in my future. Unless he just wants to start keeping track of it better/wearing it all the time.
