Smitty Can't Wear a Wedding Ring

Really. Here is a picture of my hand. Note the web. The other hand is almost as bad. So I'm looking for suggestions here: tattoo? Ring on middle finger? Ring on necklace? Something more creative? Help!!!

I had completely forgotten about that. Shit man. Hmmm. You mentioned some of the top alternatives. You could get a toe ring if you wish to stay in the ring family. Just kidding. Personally I shy away from puncturing my body unnecessarily. On a similar vein, I recommend merely increasing the size of the ring. Try some marriage bracelets, arm bands, necklaces, or pendants for you both. If you look around for an actual jeweler rather than the resellers you normally find you may be able to get her a ring and you something that still matches it. Or if I may suggest to Smittygirl, she might want to get you a shock collar instead. Ha ha.

You could always go with the tattoo idea, but make it across your forehead to read "I'm taken" :)

Lots of men don't wear rings, though. You could pretend you have a manual labor job that makes the wearing of rings unsafe.

And ask around at jewelers. Brad has ridiculously large knuckles and skinny fingers, and they had some options for getting a better fit. Of course, he wound up not taking them up on anything, but still, they may have a suggestion.

Cut the web. Chicks dig scars, especially when it is for them.

Okay okay, I guess I should have mentioned, there will be NO CUTTING OF THE WEB... chicks may dig scars, but if I had the webbing cut my palm would actually be V-shaped. Which would be pretty cool if I wanted to do the "live long and prosper" thing from Star Trek:TOS. But... not that cool.

It was just an idea. Simmer down. You could try the african neck stretch ring thing. You would be unique. Seriously though I think that putting the ring on a necklace would eventually become irritating and putting a ring on your right hand would signify your gay marriage. Your best bet would probably either be the tattoo or a ring on your pinky.

Tat her name over your heart and spend the leftover money on a chain. Haha!

Put the ring on your pointer-- make it a standard, typical wedding ring so there's nothing to question.

I'll let you know what a tattoo feels like. I'm getting mine 7/11/07. Should be a hoot. I'll let you know if it's anything like having needles poke you (cause I know you love needles).
