The Ring

Met the missus for lunch yesterday, as planned. The ring wasn't quite ready when we arrived at the shop so we went for lunch first. Miky thought that the restaurant would be quiet, being a Thursday, but pensioners receive a special discount on Thursdays so the place was quite packed. Not that it was loud and full of yahoos though.

Back to the jeweller's shop. The ring was there. It looked magnificent. The saleslady asked me how I wished to pay for it, after I had handed over my credit card, to which I replied, "As slowly as possible." She ripped it through the EFTPOS machine and said that she would make it, "Quick and painless."

Then we wandered down to SeoulMart so that Miky could buy some thinly sliced beef for a Korean BBQ for tea. I said that I was going to the bus stop to go back to work but I really planned to go to a florist. I ducked off, found a nice bouquet, and had them delivered.

The flowers went down well. It's only taken me 10 years to learn but I'm getting there.

You had better describe the ring sometime. We women like to know these details.
