You will no doubt remember the day I discovered how fat my fingers used to be.
This morning, when I woke up, I discovered that my fingers had swollen up again.
I'd been using a rubber band tied around my wedding ring to hold it in place on my finger. But this morning the ring was well and truly stuck. I couldn't pull it over my knuckle and it really hurt. Ow!
'My finger has swollen up!' I told Denise. 'Look!'
Denise hates it when people say, 'Look!' But she was sympathetic.
'Maybe it's because I'm not on my diuretic any more?' I said. 'Water retention?'
Denise agreed that this was possible.
I felt sad about the whole business.
At work, I said to my colleague, Lorraine, 'Look! My finger is swollen - my wedding ring is stuck!'
I thought Lorraine might be interested because she had given me a gizmo to wrap around the ring last week. It hadn't worked as well as the rubber band but it was helpful.
'Youve got the ring on the wrong finger,' she said.
She was right.
