My boss had caught his wedding ring on a hook and turned it into a wedding teardrop. His wife told him that in order for it to be beaten back into shape he was going to have to take it off – and then, she announced, she would be free.
I put my whiteboard marker through it and pressed it really hard onto the desk. My might and resolve (and weight) restored his pear-shaped ring back to a happy marriage.
Now, what shall I ask for in return?
