When my husband and I were dating in college, he got a little green metal ring from a gumball machine. I wore it for a while until the green paint wore off, and then I put it in my jewelry box and forgot about it. Then, we were watching television one evening, and he went into my room and started digging around. He asked me where that ring was and if it still fit. I said that I did not know if it still fit or not. He brought it out and asked me to try it on. Then, he pulled out a beautiful diamond ring and asked if it fit better. I tried it on, cried and said yes!
