these are my hands

I'm not wearing my rings.

I wear rings everyday, in the shower, to work, to bed, etc. I don't take them off to wash the dishes; I don't take them off to do work. They are always on me.

The other morning, for whatever reason unknown to me, I decided to take them off.

And when I did, I noticed my hands looked different. They looked longer, thinner.

I found myself rubbing my finger next to my pinky finger with my thumb, even though the ring wasn't there. (I always turn my ring around and around with my thumb.)

The most noticeable thing was when I washed my hands. It felt like I was washing a stranger's hands.

The same hands I always have, changed tremendously by something so minute.
