DEAR MISS MANNERS: Approximately 15 years ago, I gave my niece a ring. It had been found by my grandfather (her great-grandfather), a migrant farm worker.

He gave it to my mother, and she gave it to me when I was 15. It is a class ring from my alma mater from the year 1918, and I wore it for many years.

I gave it to my niece on the occasion of her wedding; it was her “something old.” My niece has since divorced that husband and is remarried with a family.

I have never seen the ring again. She doesn’t wear it, and I truly regret giving it away.

Assuming she still has the ring, is there any way to ask for it back? I do not want to hurt her, but the ring has enormous sentimental value to me.

GENTLE READER: Did your niece divorce the ring along with the ex-husband? Because otherwise, there is no reason to think that these two events were related — and the ring is still rightfully hers.

Miss Manners suggests instead that you remember it fondly in front of her and her children. Tell them the legacy of their great-great-grandfather, and add, “Perhaps someday, your mother will pass the ring along to you, as I did to her. It is such an important symbol of our family history.” And then watch as your niece quickly scrambles to produce it.

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Sometimes I give suggestions to businesses, such as a gym, a store or my condo management. I am very careful to be respectful and polite, and to wait till the person at the counter is available to speak with me.

I usually receive one of a few answers, but I don’t know how to reply.

Sometimes I hear, “No one else has mentioned this,” which I find condescending. Or I’m told, “There has never been an incident before” to requests for safety measures, which I find very illogical. I’ve never had a fire at my home or been in a car accident, yet I use smoke alarms and seat belts.

I believe that when there is a problem, it should be investigated — such as checking the temperature or the decibels, for example, if I mention that it is extremely cold or extremely loud — instead of telling me I’m the only one with the complaint. There is never a simple acknowledgment or validation of my concerns.

GENTLE READER: And that is unfortunate. Miss Manners might have some sympathy for an establishment receiving conflicting feedback on subjective criteria, but these replies suggest that your reactions are out of line.

Your response to such remarks should be, “Thank you. I will take it up with management.” Whether or not you actually do so is entirely up to your own equally subjective criteria.

Warriors’ Star Stephen Curry Explains Origins of Iconic Celebration

Getty Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.

The Golden State Warriors have every right to be confident. They’ve won four championships in the last eight years and have proven that they’re one of the greatest dynasties of all time. And while they consistently show their dominance on the court, they also aren’t afraid to vocalize their confidence.

Draymond Green is one of the most loud-mouthed players in the league and is constantly sounding off on opponents. And while Klay Thompson may be quiet, he also doesn’t hesitate to talk from time to time. Meanwhile, Stephen Curry went viral this past postseason for his “Night Night” celebration.

Throughout the postseason, Curry would break out his “Night Night” celebration, where he would put his two hands under his head and pretend to be asleep. The move has taken a life of its own, and during an interview with Nick DePaula of Boardroom, he explained the origins of the celebration:

The first time I did it was Game 3, in Denver. It happened quick, and it was one of those situations where you were back in the playoff vibe. We had missed it for two years. I was just feeling amped being back on that stage. I was coming off the bench, so I was even more hyped up, with even more energy coming off of the injury and all that.

When we got to the fourth quarter, I don’t even know where it came from. It was literally no thought. It was kind of a back and forth game, and we were on the road. I knew if we could win Game 3 and go to 3-0, it was pretty much a wrap on the series. It was just a matter of whether [the series would be won] in Game 4 or a “gentleman’s sweep” in Game 5. 

Down the stretch in the fourth quarter, we got a stop, and I was just talking to myself:

“Put ‘em to sleep. Put ‘em to sleep.” 

That was the conversation I was having with myself. Not with anyone else on the team or anyone else in the arena.

Then, I had finished that layup underneath Jokic, and that was the thought that came out – just to do the sign. I didn’t say, “Night Night” at the time. I was just telling myself, “Put ‘em to sleep.” 

Fast forward to Game 5, when I made the last layup to go up five with 19 seconds left. That was the official, “Put them to sleep.” The camera didn’t get me on that one, but I actually said it. 

Fast forward to Memphis, Dallas and then Boston, and it kind of took on a life of its own.

He also admitted how great it felt to take down the Celtics while simultaneously breaking out the celebration.

Curry on Celebrating Win Over Boston

Heading into the NBA Finals, the Celtics hadn’t lost two games in a row. However, to close out the series, Golden State won three-straight contests. Curry said that doing the celebration when beating Boston was the best feeling.

“It felt the best. The way that game went, it was an emotional rollercoaster. They came out just hitting every shot, and they were up double digits in the first four minutes. We slowly just crept back and then went on that 21-nothing run. When we came out in the third quarter, everyone was feeling it. Let’s just step on their throats, right now,” Curry stated.

He also is excited that people around the sports world have begun doing the deliberation as well.

Curry Happy About Others Using Celebration

After Curry broke out the celebration in the Finals, other people around the sports world began using it as well, and Curry is happy to see it.

“It’s the best, ’cause some are taking it to new extremes that I would never feel comfortable doing in the league. But it’s dope to know how far the reach is. I’ve told people before, “I know there’s people that did the symbol before me.

“But to know that you cemented a moment that’s on the biggest of stages, and people are inspired by it and want to have fun with whatever they’re doing with it — they’ve taken their own spin on it and have had some creativity with it,” said Curry.

So, as people continue to mimic Curry’s greatness, hopefully the Warriors star will get to use it again next year.
