Shragi and Shia and the Ultra-Bright Idea

Yael Mermelstein

“Are you sure you lost your ring again?” my father called down the stairs to my mother. “I have a hanger all the way down the drain and I don’t feel any resistance.” My mother’s response sounded frantic. “I don’t know if it fell down the drain. I remember taking it off by the bathroom sink and then I came downstairs and I was cooking and I didn’t have it anymore …” My mother’s voice drifted off into a resigned sigh. “Maybe Shragi and Shia can help.”
