Ring Off

Growing up, I always thought that
if a boy loves you, he buys you things.
I thought if he really loves you, he buys you a ring.
And one day, some poor unfortunate soul will love you so much
that he will buy you a big, beautiful diamond.
Whose idea was this originally?
De Beers.
Some genius marketing team in the 1930s came up with that slogan,
“A diamond is forever”
and it worked brilliantly.
In the 10+ years I’ve been dating,
I’ve had two rings bought for me.
They were beautiful and I loved them.

But both of them broke.

How much more of a sign do you need, Kels?

P.S. “Ring Off” is a BeyoncĂ© song that inspired this rant.
