DBD 6/21/13: The Ring

We were at a Christmas party at my parents' house. There was lots of food. And chaos. But mostly food. Yet Ms. Kod navigated it all with grace. While she was distracted helping tidy things in the kitchen, my grandmother pulled me aside.

"You know, Kody, I have a ring."

Me: "A ring?"

Her: "Yes. I got a ring custom ordered for your dad years ago in case he found a girl to marry. But when I tried to give it to him, he already had one. So I wanted you to know, I have one for you in case you ever need it."

Me: "...Ok. Thank you!" (Years later, I realize that she was hinting her approval of Ms. Kod.)

Several months later, I took her up on her offer. But then the question was...how to make sure that the ring was sized properly? (So that I would have a proper engagement gift of my own, I did buy Ms. Kod a diamonds and platinum necklace.)

Since Ms. Kod already wore a ring from her mom. I ever so casually mentioned one day, "Hey. I have this stuff from dental school. It's incredible at shining and polishing jewelry. Wanna see if it will clean up your ring?"

Her: "Uhhhh. Okay." What I used was a two-paste polyvinyl siloxane putty. It's what we use to take highly accurate impressions for dental-work. In this case, it did leave the ring looking shinier. But it also gave me a exact replica of her ring size.

She was suitably impressed that her ring was indeed oooooh-shiny, and thought no more of it. (To this day, she can't believe she didn't suspect anything else.)

After she had left, I compared my grandmother's ring to the impression...and it was a perfect fit. Clearly, it was meant to be. And after eleven years, we are apparently are still saying, "what were you thinking? Too bad and too late now!"

Happy Anniversary to the love of my life. And to Mrs. Kod, too.
