Hey, sup? Well, the “ring finger” has tricked us again! The Champagne Problem of the week is why putting a ring on a the ring finger ends up being newsworthy. Please, open up the heavens (if there are some) and tell me why. Can’t a person wear a ring on their ‘ring’ finger without the entire world losing their thongs about it? I’m guessing no. It’s a celebrity fascination that has trickled down into normal people world. For some weird reason, there is this super odd and continuously annoying assumption that when a human being puts a ring of their choice on the left ring finger hand, they have magically entered a world of engagement.
Now, this happens to be annoying mostly because I’m not one to wholeheartedly believe in marriage. I mean, the concept is neat. The idea of it sounds fun. But do I believe in all of the ins and outs of one person’s dedication to each other forevs? I’ma have to say nay to that. I’m not saying it isn’t fantastic when it does happen, I just think we can ease up on the pressure a tad bit. For me, the Goldie Hawn/Kurt Russell life partnership path seems a bit more up my alley. I can purchase fancy rings (plural) for myself after I win the lottery.( Click Here to see how I assist my Mother with that, BTW. ) Now, don’t get me wrong – I don’t frown on a good wedding. I am more frowning on the unspoken rule (some say traditional… blech) that a ring signifies being taken. A ring. That’s it. It’s shiny and that’s how you know to back off. A ring. So when that left hand has a glimmer, back down, you tigresses.
I’m just wondering how we settle down all the hub-bub here. Miley Cyrus puts a ring on her left hand and it gets more attention than January Jones eating her placenta after child birth (which BTW, if this is 100% truth, then it is awesome). I will never know exactly why a ring became the reasoning behind marriage and fidelity, but I do remember getting a promise ring when I was in 6th grade and having it on my hand for one hour before it turned it green and I threw it in a garbage can by the potato/salad bar at lunch. There may be a rhyme or reason, but I think its safe to say I want to bring back wearing rings of any kind on your left hand just because. Because you can, because you want to, because you don’t have to be taken to do such a thing. Let’s take back the right to wear what we want on our left hand. It’s our finger, we can drape it in diamonds if we want to. Or even better, just concentrate on reading hip online novels like Diamond Gothic instead of worrying about jewels all together. Ya’lls call.
