Someone’s Getting My Ring

When I got home late this evening, I realized I hadn’t yet retrieved my mail. So I walked over to the mailboxes and overheard this snippet of a phone conversation:

“Yeah, so what I bought is a 1 carat, princess cut, set in platinum. What do you think?”

If I had more courage I would have answered, “I think YES!” Once upon a time when I thought someone was going to propose, that was my ring. Well, the diamond weight was a little less, but the cut and setting was the same. And even though I wasn’t getting the ring tonight, I was happy that someone else in the universe was going to get that ring soon! It made me happy.

I was even happier when my first films from my free trial of Blockbuster’s Total Access program arrived: the first and third parts of Ken Burns’ Baseball. I think part two will arrive tomorrow. Since I won’t be able to watch the College World Series this year, I decided to rewatch baseball films, and I’m starting with this nine-part documentary.

Why nine parts? Because there are nine innings in baseball!
