the ring's the thing

Went over to my aunt's to watch Vanilla Sky (underrated movie, for the record) when I noticed my wedding ring finger was hurting a bit (And no, I'm not reading any particular symbolism into that) so I switched it to my other hand. Man, that was a weird drive felt like I was driving in England or something, I had to put a lot of extra thought into which way the road curved and how traffic was merging...I guess this ring has become a bit of an orienting device.
