Missing: One Brand New Wedding Ring

What's worse on your honeymoon: throwing up or losing your wedding ring? Unfortunately for Blondie, he had both.

He managed to keep track of his wedding ring for one full week before it disappeared. He had been wearing it daily and putting it in his "cubby" where he keeps his glasses, cell phone, wallet, watch, and other odds and ends.

When we went to dinner on Saturday evening during our honeymoon, he noticed that he didn't have it on his finger. He assumed he had left it on the desk at the hotel where he had been putting it when he took it off. When we got back to the room, his ring wasn't there.

We searched the entire room. Couldn't find it. The last time he remembered having it was at lunch. We went back to the restaurant where we had eaten lunch; they hadn't found it. We returned to the stores we had visited that afternoon; no luck there. We wracked our brains trying to think of places it could be. We came up with nothing.

He felt awful. I assured him that we were still married even if he doesn't have a ring. He started getting sick on Saturday evening and he said the throwing up eases the guilt of misplacing his ring. I'm not sure it's worth it.

Upon the suggestion of his cousin Art, Blondie searched for a new ring on and found a pretty exact duplicate right away. The best part? It cost $29.99. That's pretty hard to beat!
