The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Nov. 14/2020

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ring.” Use it as a noun, a verb, an adverb, or an adjective…use it any way you’d like. Have fun!


I found myself divorced and I still possessed the wedding ring. I didn’t know what to do with it. I have been divorced 21 years and that stupid ring is till sitting in front of my face on my computer desk shelf. I tried to sell it, but it wasn’t worth anything. That should tell you something right there. It was a gold band with diamond chips all the way around. I didn’t have a real engagement ring and set because the first one we got was dirt cheap and you could almost break the metal by twisting it. My ex lost his ring almost immediately whether on purpose or not I still don’t now. So he bought me this second ring and it wasn’t worth crap either. So here it sits. I can’t bring myself to toss it and it isn’t worth anything and so I torment myself by looking at the ring box.

I remember just before we got divorced that I had been at work and the ring was loose and I tossed scrap plastic in the bin and the ring went flying. I had them shut the line down while I looked for it piece by piece in the scrap bin. Several people helped me and I couldn’t find it and I started to cry (obviously I still had feelings about the upcoming divorce). They got ready to start the line up again and just then I picked up some scrap to put back in the bin and the ring was caught up in the pile of containers. Talk about relief. I don’t know why I am so attached to the stupid ring. I could care less about the man who gave it to me.

    1. I am not sure. I managed to give the wedding gown, the album and the engraved cake cutting knife to my daughters. I don’t understand the ring attachment though. Maybe because he gave it to me and it symbolized an attachment that should have been there.

  1. It’s interesting what we’re attached to. I think bikerchick has a great idea — you don’t necessarily have to throw it out if the idea of that bothers you, but out of sight/out of mind could be a nice change.
