Dragon had been dealing with a major plumbing disaster. A simple $5 5 minute fix turned into a $200 all day fiasco. Don't ever put CPVC in a house. Not smart.
Dragon's poor hands were beat up by the end of the day. He took off his wedding band and asked me to put it away. I put it in the safest place for something so important to both of us.
The next day her went to work. One of his coworkers started flirting with him. She didn't take his usual "I'm not interested" signals. He had to tell her straight up that he is not available. She assumed that our marriage was in trouble when he didn't have his ring.
Did she ever get the wrong impression!
My Dragon was kind and let her know that we are still very much together. Who knew that someone would take something so small so seriously? It is important to both of us but the rings can spend some time put away.
He put his ring back on as soon as he got home from work. No more confused coworkers we hope!
