Precious

We must have been talking about weddings:
Jai: “Daddy, Aidan and I are getting married!”
Me: “Oh? When?”
Stop right there: Jai is 5yo, Aidan is now 2.5yo, and they are very precocious brothers.
Jai: “Today!”
Me: “Do you have a ring? Do you have a celebrant?”
Jai: “Oh…”

A little while later we decided to take down and wash loungeroom curtains. (I feel certainly we are one of very few renters who wash curtains, clean windows and look after the gardens!)

First time, so we notice they hang on standard metal curtain rings. Jai sees one and his eyes light up.

“May I have one?”
“Sure… why?”
“I need a precious ring!”

I smile and say…

“Will it be your precious?”
“Oh yes, it will be my precious!”

Not kidding, true story. Not exact sure why, but the wedding was cancelled.

Oh, precious was given back and has resumed life as a standard curtain ring.
