And in other domestic news,

for the first time in 8 1/2 years, this morning I finally did it.

I accidentally lost my wedding ring down the bathtub drain.

Freud would have a fothermucking field day with that.

I put it on the tub ledge and somehow knocked it into the bath water and it went on down. I didn't even realize I'd done it till I got out of the tub and couldn't find it. Fortunately, it didn't go down very far and I was able to fish it back out with my fingers and a knife.

My mother lost her engagement and wedding rings down drains at least twice. In fact, I think the first time was right after she got her engagement ring. Dropped it right down her parents' sink and her brother Jimmy had to rip the pipe apart. She always joked that shrinks would have a good time analyzing that too. She's harped at me literally since I got these rings about not dropping them down the open drains in our bathroom, in this house we've lived in the whole time.

I was bound to screw up with the drain sooner or later.

It would have to be today.

Wherever he is, I bet he's laughing his ass off.
