A Stinky Discovery

Fred has been missing his wedding ring for more than 3 months now.

His ring is made of tungsten so it's unbreakable, unscratchable and it's heavy. For these reasons he doesn't wear it to work (he does construction) in case of an accident because his finger would have to be removed before this ring because it can't be cut off. So instead he wears his CTR ring to work.

He got in the habit of leaving his wedding ring in our bathroom and then he'd put it on when he got out of the shower after work.

One day he realized that he wasn't wearing it, didn't know where it was and had no idea when the last time he wore. We've looked everywhere imaginable for this ring. Fred even cleaned out the nasty bathroom sink drain to look for it (it wasn't there...but my CTR ring was).

We've torn our house apart looking for it. I was just about to call our jewelry insurance to get them to replace it when I got a text this morning from our good friends and under neighbors Blake and Aubrei.They found his ring!! Where you might ask?
Well my answer came in a picture message but I'll spare the graphic image of their son's poopy diaper. Yep. Some how little Andrew swallowed it and after who knows how long finally got it out of his system.

We're so happy they found it! Even if it was a stinky discovery!

**We're also happy that no children were hurt in the recovery of this ring**

Lesson learned: When shopping for an expensive wedding ring for your fiancee--tell him no. He's only going to lose it. The $80 one will be just as cool looking as the $300 one.

How funny. There is no telling how long poor Andrew has been trying to rid himself of that ring!

Oh my gosh! That is really funny! Good thing your neighbors look through their kids diapers! haha

Chelsie and Trace said...

Oh my heck that is so dang funny! I can't even imagine what they thought when they saw that in his diaper! That is a great story that you will be laughing about forever!

Good thing it was your friend's son instead of mine. We don't look into diapers- it would have been lost forever.

So how are you going to sanitize it so he'll actually wear it again??

oh my gosh! I can't believe that, that poor kid he must have been miserable! I'm glad you found it though

Joseph wants me to tell you to "stop complaining" about the $300 ring. He is still paying on mine. AND...lost another one of equal value. So there! Love you Chan.. and that is stinking funny. (no pun intended)

It would be interesting to know where it was and how the baby found it. but that was way to funny.
