Swallow Your Engagement Ring—It’s a Form of Flattery

California bride-to-be Jenna Evans was trapped on a train of villains with her husband and needed to act fast to protect her diamond rock. So she did what any sensible person would do—she swallowed her engagement ring. 

Evans woke up in a haze after an intense dream, initially questioning whether or not she actually swallowed the ring, but eventually just went back to sleep. When she awoke, she was shocked to find an empty ring finger. But her memory came back to her, and yes—she really swallowed her engagement ring.

Her fiancé, Bob Howell, did not initially believe this discovery. The incident was met with incessant laughter. The couple even Google searched, “Do adults swallow rings?” Evans described the whole ordeal in a hilarious Facebook post that went viral:

“I went to urgent care where I struggled to explain why I was there, because I was laughing/crying so hard,” Evans said. “The doctor ordered an X-ray and seemed pretty shocked when she walked back in with a second doctor and showed me that sure enough, my ring was right there in my stomach!”
After finding the ring in Evans’ stomach, the doctors retrieved it and returned it to Howell. Howell gave the ring back to his future wife on one condition: she needed to promise that she wouldn’t swallow it again. 

This is definitely a one-of-a-kind story. I’ve had my fair share of vivid dreams, but I don’t think I’ve ever acted on them. Have you? I wish Jenna Evans and Bob Howell a beautiful life together, and if there’s one thing they can be certain of, it’s that they’ll always have an unbelievable story to tell.
