So I popped over to my parents' house to say hello one evening after work and find everyone like this:
And when they see me walk in, everyone screams:
To my surprise, it wasn't because they wanted to take in and admire the awesome-ness of what was my outfit that day.
Although they should have.
Because hello beautiful turquoise scarf???!!!
No, it was because one of the diamonds in my sister's wedding band went flying after she caught her ring on the edge of the outdoor table.
Being the kind of person I am, I immediately sprung into action.
And began shouting encouraging and helpful advice like: "OMG!!!! IT COULD BE ANYWHERE!!!! You will NEVER find it!!"
When suddenly I stepped forward and heard a crunch.
I did not crunch my sister's diamond.
My sister found her diamond.
She found it in the mulch.
Next to a bead of Miracle-Gro fertilizer.
Can we all pause and reflect on this insanity for a moment?????
It was literally like watching the expression "Like finding a needle in a haystack" come to life right before your eyes.
I immediately swooped in, wrapped the ring and the loose diamond in my turquoise scarf, and carried it like a sick bird to the nearest emergency room.
Or poured myself a glass of wine.
I can't remember exactly. It was definitely one or the other though.
