like how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop, the world may never know why the ring that cost punkin's dad (and therefore me) $900 will be selling in the "estate" jewelry case at a local store for $99.
(the store is not ripping me off, punkin's dad did. not sure how, but he did. and i don't care that the ring is cheap or fake or whatever -- it's that he lied and he planned to take advantage of me the entire time. i could care less about real or fake, it's the principle.)
