I have been thinking all day about the story of Shannon Lombardo and her wedding and engagement rings. Shannon was cleaning her rings, set them on a napkin and then accidentally threw them away.

Back in third grade, I accidentally threw my retainer away at a birthday party and barely made it through the TWO bags of garbage a gaggle of 9 year old girls generated. I'm confident I would never make it through 800 bags filled with...well, you know!
