    So we go to pick Brett's ring up today - it's an 8mm titanium jobber. We ordered him a size 8.

    He has this major ring claustrophobia thing. He's had it his whole life (it's not a commitment thing I swear!). If he puts a ring on and can get it off really easily he freaks out and gets really claustrophobic. He starts tugging at it and basically freaks until he gets it off. Also, his fingers swell and shrink a lot. He can vary up to 1.5 ring sizes depending on the day.

    As you can guess, the 8 was too small. I made him shove it on just to make sure. Of course it gets stuck, he gets super uncomfortable, and tries to pry it off. As he was twisting it to get it off it was making these awful squeeking sounds against his skin. He couldn't wait the 1 second for the lady to get the lotion to help get it off.

    We decided to go up to an 8.5. He keeps walking around the house going "you remember that time you made me try on that too small ring?" I may never live this down.

          That is a shame. Do you think he will get used to wearing the wedding ring orwill he be one of those husbands who doesnt weaer a ring.

                Is he opposed to tattoo's? My friend can not wear a ring because of his job. So, he tattooed his wife's name on his ring finger. Her name is Kim, so it was easy, but he could tattoo your initials or the wedding date or something on his finger. Chris's looks like a ring, its really cool.

                    I was also thinking about the tattoo ring. Erik was thinking about doing the same thing. We have a ring but I was thinking we could brand our selves on our ring fingers.
                    It's an idea

                      Sorry, that made me laugh. Poor Brett. I hope the 8.5 works much better for him!!!
