midnightsun1143 Say more :
OP here! The ring had always been so tight that I couldn't get it off, but I guess loosing baby weight combined with the cold weather, my finger shrunk enough. I agree with commenters... I found it extremely odd that I didn't notice... Maybe a case of missing limb syndrome but with a ring? Anyhow, after spending a morning raking the leaves in freezing rain, I FOUND IT! An FML win! (Oh, and #55 sleet does freeze leaves when you live in Texas and the ground is warm enough to melt the sleet but the wind cold enough to re-freeze it. But we can compromise and say we are both right because it has been alternating between freezing rain and sleet for a little while now). WIN!

And on the flip side, here in Australia, there will be 3 months of non-stop 30+ Celsius weather at 80% humidity coming. I'd rather have cold weather - at least you can add on layers and watch TV.

Well I'll switch with you, buying an air conditioner is probably worth it. Then you stay cool and outside is hot, rather than every time you leave your house your limbs fall off from frost bite

#16 - not really. I can see where you're coming from, but it's far easier to warm up than cool down. When it's *really* hot, there's no escaping it, even with A/C (which only helps a fair bit, but doesn't completely solve it). Everything is hot - the ground, the air, the walls, your clothes, and even the pipes that carry the cold water. Throw in the high humidity - it's even harder to cool down; and keeps you sticky - it makes it even worse.

ps: the sun is so strong here, the UV levels often reach 15. To put it into context - you can literally feel a slight pressure on your skin when the sun shines (and I'm olive skinned). You can also get tanned a shade darker within 30 minutes.

#27, I'm from toronto aswell and there is nowhere near 3 feet of snow in the GTA. Maybe further up north in barrie etc. but not here...there is about half an inch on the ground from last night and most is gone by now, just in small patches.

#19 - I have I guess fair skin (and from Australia) and I do tend to burn easily within an hour probably if im not covering my skin (more my shoulders and back). I only ever tan on my arms.

I don't know about anybody else, but I'm more worried about my class ring. probably because I'm not married though..

I know some people can't get theirs off until their hands have been covered in goop and ice cold. Besides, a little dirt is not going to hurt a band of metal. Gold, silver, platinum, titanium, or what ever else people get these days can take it.

I have never had a problem with mine slipping off during any activity: yard work, dishes, hand washing, changing the serpentine belt on our car, etc.. Maybe all these people need to get their rings properly sized. The only time I remove it is to dye my hair or when preparing a meal with raw meat so bacteria doesn't stay in all the nooks and crannies.

Not your day, eh?

I hope this doesn't get down voted by ignorant thumbs who haven't read that FML that you were alluding to.
