Tony's Gang

Saturday night, I binge-watched the last six episodes of The Sopranos Season 2 on HBO.

I was not an early adopter of The Sopranos, but I could not remember when I started watching it regularly. The first three episodes I watched Saturday night were new to me, but I did recall seeing the last three episodes, so I must have started watching the series three-quarters of the way through Season 2.

HBO is rerunning the series because it is the 20th anniversary of The Sopranos' first broadcast. Unless they show Season 1 and the first half of Season 2 again, I will probably not binge-watch it again. However, I will watch my favorite episodes, especially the "Pine Barrens" episode (Season 3, Episode 11).

While I was watching The Sopranos, I ate a corn muffin that my wife had baked earlier. Tasted great, but it was very crumbly and some crumbs ended up in my lap. So I brushed them off and as I did, my wedding band went flying off my ring finger.

Having lost so much weight, I noticed that the ring was loose and I had a few close calls, but now it finally happened. I searched the area where I thought it was most likely to have landed, but I could not find it. So I decided to wait until daylight and resume the search under better lighting conditions.

After breakfast Sunday morning, I resumed the search, but it was not in the immediate area where I was sitting. So I expanded my search and finally found the ring on the other side of the room nearly 20 feet from where I was sitting!

To avoid future losses, I put the ring in my jewelry box until I get it resized or buy a ring size adjuster. I've worn that ring day and night for over 35 years and now my ring finger feels naked without it.

By the way, you might consider brushing the crumbs off my lap was slovenly and inconsiderate, but I fully intended to vacuum the crumbs before I went to bed. And since I perform most of the housewife chores in my domicile including vacuuming, I was not being inconsiderate of my wife because I am also a wife.

  1. I lost my wedding ring twice, once I got it back (and then stopped wearing while working) and once it went down a drain - in France. I bought a new one and still wear it most of the time even though we are now separated so I know exactly what you mean by missing it when its not there.

  2. On a different note, when I first saw the Sopranos I was struck that we were ostensibly in the same business as at the time my main occupation was as a Waste Management Consultant! ~ We do dress slightly differently though.
