Married to the Mountain

My birthday present came early!  Last week I found a ring I REALLY liked
online.
  It had to be made to order, so
the site said it took 6-8 weeks to ship.
 
That meant I should have gotten it the second week of September, just in
time for my birthday.
  It was the right
price, so I decided to make it my birthday present.
 

You can imagine my shock when it arrived in the mail
today! 
I opened it as I was walking back
from the mailbox and tried it on.
  It was
a bit smaller than I’d anticipated, but not enough to make me upset.
  From above it looks just like a solid gold
band, but from the side you can see Pikes Peak.

For some reason rings are always big on me, so this time I
ordered a 5.5 to be sure it fit (I usually order a 6 and it ends up being way
to big, sliding around my right ring finger). 
Imagine my surprise when this ring didn’t fit on my right ring
finger!
  Well, I could “make” it fit, but
it wouldn’t come off without some serious tugging, so I moved it to my left
ring finger (where it slides around… go figure!).

When I got inside I showed it to Emily.  She was impressed, and said it was “perfect” for
me.
 

I said to her “the only bad part is it has to go on my left
ring finger”, then explained how that is usually reserved for wedding bands, so
now everyone would think I was married. 

She started giggling, then laughing.  I asked her “what’s so funny?” 

Emily:  “You’re
married t the mountain!
  It’s absolutely PERFECT
for you!!!”

My daughter knows me so well!  Yes, I suppose it’s quite fitting.  In any event, I’m in love with it!
