Oh My Gawd Sodagirl!
Would you dig in a smelly bag of trash for a silver ring?

April 6, 2009

Would you dig in a disgusting, smelly bag of garbage for a silver ring? And yes, there really is a ring in there – not a trick question – so would you?

I’m asking for a particular reason – see, I have to do just that. I have this really pretty heart-shaped silver ring with a tiny diamond in the center of the heart and I took it off the other day and was going to put it in the adorable jewelry box my best friend gave me, but no, I was lazy and just set it inside the cabinet over the island in the kitchen, which wouldn’t be a big deal. That cabinet doesn’t get opened often, so really, it could have sat there for days – weeks even – without incident. However, my husband wanted me to make a call for him today, and I needed a piece of paper and a pen to write some numbers down, and where is the paper and pens? Yep, in that cabinet, which I opened the door, and when I reached for the notepad, I set off a paper avalanche, and that in turn knocked the ring off the shelf in the cabinet, and it bounced onto the island and plop, into the open garbage bag that doesn’t normally sit on the floor by the island but I was cleaning out my fridge and pantry and disposing of items no longer safe for human consumption, that really, could probably pass for science experiments.

That sure was a long, rambling sentence, for which I do apologize but I didn’t want to lose my momentum. Plus, I’m stalling. The garbage bag full of gross garbage (not that there is garbage that isn’t gross) is smelling up my house and my ring is sitting in there somewhere – I’m guessing at the very bottom of the bag – and I know if I want my pretty ring back, I must dig through that bag, but I’m nauseous just thinking about it. One plus though – I do have a wicked-ass cold, so my sense of smell is not quite a hundred percent, which will work in my favor. However, my cold has not affected my eyesight, so I’ll see the grossness, which in turn will probably make me puke.

Wish me luck – I’m goin’ in.

*Edit* I found it – less than five minutes of garbage picking. *Insert gagging noise here*

  1. ew. garbage picker!

  2. Hey, it was bling – I just couldn’t leave it there! ;)

  3. Man, that is nasty but I would do it!Here is my nasty ring, garbage diving story:

    I was six years old and just pooped on the potty. While said pooping was going on, I was playing with my Dad’s Army War College ring which he wore daily.

    After I stood up and after forgetting I put the ring on my leg, I heard “plop” as the ring dropped into the not-yet-flushed-toilet and the “clank” as it landed at the bottom of the murky bowl.

    ‘What should I do?’ furiously ran through my six year old mind. ‘Should I get it? Should I flush it?’

    Finally, I decided on my course of action…”Daaaaaaaaaaaadddd” I yelled “your ring fell into the potty by accident.” ;)

    As your stalker, I would consider doing this for you but since I am not there, I would cut a small hole in the bottom of the garbage bag and shake it like a mad-woman until the ring falls to the bottom. Problem solved! :)

  4. P.S. Of course, my dad retrieved the ring. First time I ever saw a grown man cry was when he stuck his hand in a toliet full of crap.

  6. Most probably I would dig down for the ring if that ring has some sentimental value or even the value itself. I just couldn’t leave it there.

  7. Hi Sassy

    I had posted – a good few times – on your Goodbye Jade Goody, Goodbye – and liked the way you write – which led me here!! Your witty words and stories are just brilliant (I am from Glasgow in Rainy gorgeous Scotland) and have saved this page to my favourites!

    I remember I had to go through my rubbish bag for something but earlier on my dog had been sick and the contents of that were in said bin lol


  8. p.s can I say a big hello also to the other ladies on here!!! HELLO!!!

  9. @ my darling stalker – nice poop/ring story! Next time I lose a ring in the garbage and/or poop, I’m calling you! ;)

  10. Hi Roses! We miss you at the group babe!

  11. @ Bossybootsmargaret – well thank you darlin’ – hope you come back for more!

  12. No, see, what you do is, find a small child (not too small, but small enough to not have any source of income, small enough to find rifling through garbage to be kind of adventurous, etc.) and offer them $5 to dig through the trash. Works every time.
