I've lost my wedding ring
However, last Wednesday I decided to continue working on something in the garage. I figured Nightingale would be home any minute so I might as well wait for her and help unload Moose & Squirrel from the car.
I have a vague memory of removing my ring and putting it in my pocket because I was working with a drill. However, that memory - of putting it in my pocket -- could just be a vestigial remnant of some other memory since I do that all the time. Yes I know that vestigial and remnant are synonyms and thus redundant. That's just how pissed off I am: I'm breaking grammar rules!
[I don't break many grammar rules but over time language is updated. It evolves and changes, and we know this because none of us say thou in our daily speech. ]
Because we are currently so sleep deprived, it is getting harder to function. That means some things just don't get written to hi memory in our brain. Nightingale will ask "what time did we feed Moose & Squirrel last night" and I honestly cannot remember. It might have been 2 am. Or that could have been two days ago.
So it is quite plausible that the memory of putting my ring in my pocket is days or weeks old. Just an old memory file that was accessed when I asked my brain to search on "where is my ring'.
