Engagement Ring, December 2006-March 2007 (Part 3 of 3)

Days after Deborah's engagement ring disappeared into thin air like Osama bin Laden on the Afghan-Pakistani border, I was still seriously bummed. Then I read about the unluckiest man in the world.

This jaco in London apparently put a $12,000 engagement ring into a balloon so his girlfriend would "pop" it as he "popped" the question. But before the proposal, a gust of wind rolled by and the balloon, with the ring, went up, up and away. "I had to tell her the story – she went absolutely mad," Leffkos Hajji told Reuters. "Now she is refusing to speak to me until I get her a new ring."

Or, he could tell her to go eff herself, but that's neither here nor there. Bottom line, I read that story and felt slightly better.

But that's not all! Click here for the exciting conclusion to the Ring Saga.

My wife lost two of them. Once, on a beach at a lake in Western, Pa., she dropped it in the sand. I spent hours looking. I offered these little kids $20 to help me look. They said that wasn't enough.

To the guy with the balloon: OMGWTFINSURANCE? To you? That is positively charming about what your rabbi told you. I love that. I will have to put that in my blog somewhere so I can always remember it. So beautiful and awesome.
