- Wedding: August 2014
I thought this was pretty funny, so I’m here to share!
When I was in junior high we had a elderly relative live with us until a spot became available in a nursing home. As such, we had homecare in the house pretty often. Sometime during this period of time my mother’s original wedding set, which was apparently very expensive, vanished. My mom used to think it was homecare that stole it, but now she wonders if great aunt Agnes ate the rings, as she had a tendency to put shiny things in her mouth. Either way, the set was long gone, and around a year after they disappeared my mother and father purchased a replacement set for her.
… is what I thought, but yesterday in a car ride home we went past the store my dad purchased her original set at, and I asked him if the new set looked anything like the old one. His response?
Dad: … what new set?
HE LEGIT HAD NO IDEA MY MOTHER HAS BEEN WEARING A DIFFERENT WEDDING SET FOR THE LAST DECADE. I was all, “remember when her rings went missing?” and he just said “I thought she had found them!!” Nevermind that they’re apparently entirely different sets, as he originally purchased what sounded like a solitaire and now she has a past-present-future set. I guess my mom went out and picked her new set on her own, and he honestly never even realized it! My FI and I were laughing pretty hard abotu it by the time he got us home, hahah.
