The Black Hole in your Bra
So many of us women use our bra as a pocket. We might put a $20 bill in there for emergency, a key, etc. Well, I was going to an event a in risky neighborhood so I took my diamond jewelry – my 3 carat engagement ring, my 3 1/2 carat forever-ring and my 10 carat tennis bracelet. Ugh ugh ugh. I forgot that I put it there. Not good! Later that afternoon, a plant was knocked over from the patio surrounding the pool into the pool. Oh geez, well I am still in recovery and in physical therapy, but I am permitted to fully bathe. I decided to go into the pool in my shorts and top to swim underwater to retrieve the plant. I retrieved the plant and as I was approaching the steps to exit, I saw something shiny at the bottom of the pool. I put the plant on the pavers and dove under wearing a mask.
Oh my, oh geez, oh crap…dang, dang, dang! The shiny object was my diamond tennis bracelet. I picked it up, threw in my pocket and began to figure out how to get the rings. I knew for certain that the rings were in the pool. Problem: I’m thin and cannot get my body to stay on the 9-foot pool bottom; I’d get close to the bottom and just float back up. Time after time. Attempt after attempt.
I waited 3 days. Trepidation. I told hubby. After a brief eye-popping freak out face and statements of what, how, etc., hubby went into the pool and retrieved my rings.
I’m so grateful the pool vacuum – the sea monster, as I refer to the water spitting machine – did not suck up the jewelry.
Morale..if you choose….THINGS FALL OUT OF YOUR BRA!! Not a pocket…learned the hard way. Phew.
