the ring

16 Jul

Some days ago, I went for  blood draw and the gentleman drawing my blood asks ‘are you from here?’ I said ‘no, I’m from Belize’. He continues with his work then out of the blues says ‘I knew you not from here because they don’t do beautiful like you here’. I had no idea what to say, i sat there wondering if he was flirting or talking to himself because my wedding ring was obvious! Don’t get me wrong, i was flattered but do people not respect the ‘ring’ anymore?

    I like this. The ring seems to have degenerated to a mere jewelry now. quite sad but that is the state of the world. A state of entropy.

      I am convinced that there are still things that should be taken seriously and marriage is one of them! Thanks for the comment!

    indeed Society now has little to no regards to “The Ring”. The holniness of it is gone with no look back. God help us in Jesus Name!

      Someone pointed out that it could be a compliment as a lady not a disrespect. Thanks for reading.

    As a guy, I dont think it was because he was not paying respect to u as a married woman. I could compliment a lady on her beauty even if she is married. It doesnt mean I dont respect her married status or ‘ring’, so I want to believe that the guy who made that comment did that innocently and not out of trying to make a pass at u.
