I had booked an early flight out of SFO, and stayed the night before my flight at the Days Inn nearby. I was pleased by the firm king sized bed and the clean and relatively spacious amenities, which were all I expected. When my alarm woke me at 4:20am (I said it was an early flight) I made a pot of coffee and showered while it brewed. Hurrying and perhaps still somewhat groggy I dressed and was standing in front of the bathroom mirror when my wedding ring dropped down into the sink.
There was no drain stopper (perhaps there might have been?) and I heard my ring rattle down into the trap below the sink. I checked and determined that the trap might be removed with a pipe wrench, but not with my bare hands.
While my wedding band has sentimental value, it is not irreplaceable. And I was determined to make my flight. The night clerk at the desk listened attentively and explained that the maintenance man would not come on duty until much later, and could look for my ring then. She took my information, and I left for the airport only hoping that my ring might find its way back to me.
While I was waiting at the luggage carousel in Boston about seven hours later I received a phone call from the hotel manager announcing that he had my ring in hand. He mailed it to me immediately, and I am wearing it again. Nick, my sincere thanks!
