Today in words:
For the last 24 hours, I haven’t been able to locate my wedding ring. It has been making me sick. Let me tell you about it.

We bought my ring at a jewelry store at the mall about 2 months before we got married in August 2008. It’s made out of tungsten metal and they had to order my size. I went to pick it up about a week out and it was a size too big. They said “don’t worry, we can just order another a size smaller and you can keep this one for your wedding and exchange it.”

A couple of months go by and I haven’t gotten a call from them. I went in and low and behold the jewelry store (chain) had gone bankrupt, leaving me with a size too big wedding ring. Being tungsten metal, you can’t size it. They apparently make it in Mordor somewhere.

Since I’ve worn it, it’s just slightly too big for my finger. I have to be concious of that, but for the most part I’ve gotten used to it.

Last night it somehow got stuck between couch cushions and I didn’t realize it. I thought it had gotten stuck in a glove at work and I had thrown it away. I posted my concern online today and luckily a friend of ours was over last night and saw that I was still wearing it after work. Thank God for women who notice wedding bands.

All this to say… IT HAS BEEN FOUND.

For the last 24 hours, I’ve really been stressed out about it. I’ve never been so concerned about losing something. I’ve lost my wallet which sucked and I’ve lost my phone. Something about losing something sentimental though. I can’t explain it.

What about you? Have you ever lost something that freaked you out? Anyone ever lost their kids at Six Flags or something? I’d love to hear about it!

(I’ll send a free OwenPye.com pencil to the most interesting comment left.)

About owenpye

Owen Pye began playing in 2005, with just a guitar and a plan: To share music with willing listeners. As cliche as that may seem, it’s exactly what he’s doing. Pye was getting a lot of exposure on myspace, with his boastful 20,000 fans and thorough independently booked tour schedule in his early years supporting his debut album “If That’s Cool With You.” To date, Owen Pye has shared the stage with some of the best up and coming artists including Deas Vail (Mono VS. Stereo) Dr. Manhattan (Vagrant) and New London Fire (Eyeball.) He has independently booked over 250 shows in the United States. In 2008 he teamed up with some friends to form a consistent full-band line-up known as “Owen Pye & The Sunday School Band.” With the help of producer and engineer Andrew Osenga (Caedmon’s Call, The Normals) they released their self-titled record to the masses in late 2009. During the summer of 2010, Pye began his solo project with Blackroom Records. When asked about the upcoming project, Owen Pye responded, “This is very, very exciting and I am SO pumped to work with these folks for the next year in support of the record.” To learn more about Owen Pye, pickup a CD, download an MP3 or come out to a show near you. http://www.owenpye.com/

  1. Once I was at a music festival working in Illinois. On the second of two days at the festival, there was one thing that was missing… the main act! I kept searching my email, listening to my radio, and checking my voicemail, but they were nowhere to be found. With about 10 minutes left in the 2nd to close band’s set, they arrived in a bright yellow Geo Metro with guitars, bass, and cymbals in hand and played a great set.

    Wait, were these supposed to be true?
