The store in question does not carry mens' rings in size 7.( I told you he has slender hands.) They have to be special ordered. So, at my Knight's request we drove to SIX different stores looking for a man's celtic marriage knot ring in size 7. Every jewelry store we went to carried the ring or something very similar - NONE had it in a size 7. According to the various sales people, the average ring size for a man is a 9, so almost no one stocks mens rings in smaller than an 8.
This is a petty unamazing story.. until you realize that my Knight is not a shopper. He loses his patience quickly when we don't find what we're looking for in the second store. After the second store, he's ready to give it up and order the item on-line. Actually, he's prefer if we made on-line shopping our first and only stop when looking to purchase any item. Except yesterday. He was excited and happy that I was buying him a ring that represented my acceptance of his submission to me... a token that showed the world he belongs to me. My Knight was the driving force behind our several hour trek to various stores around town looking for that ring in a size 7. We turned up nothing. It seems nobody in town carries that ring in size 7. It was getting late and even the mall was closed, so our search came to an end. My sweet Knight tried to hide it, but he was so obviously disappointed. I was incredibly touched by his excitement when I told him where we were going, and by his disappointment of not finding it.
I told him I'd order it on-line this morning, but my Knight asked if I'd wait and check just one more place before we order on-line because he'll get it faster that way. I don't think this store will have it either, but I'm willing to check while I'm out today because he's just so happy and excited about this. If I don't come home with his ring today I'll order it on-line tonight.
