I spent several nights in a hotel room this past week. On Night 2, I was sitting on the bed, and I saw something glittering under the desk. I was curious because it was very bright, so I crawled under and checked it out.

It was a diamond, quite small but brilliant. Maybe .02 or .03 carats.

The next night I was sitting on the couch watching television, and I saw another glint under the bed. I got down, and sure enough, another identical diamond.

Then later that night, on the other side of the bed, I was a third flash and found a third one.

These were in very different parts of the room, blocked from each other by furniture. There's no way that someone could have dropped them as a group and had them end up so far apart.

So what's the story here? What happened in the room before I arrived?

I want to test, but they're really small. I'm not sure if I can do it. Apparently you can test them by dropping them in water, but ... they're really small.

I dont know whats going on with the diamonds but I do know your room isnt being swept and cleaned properly.

This appears to be true, especially given the service levels I experienced at the hotel. However, I'll concede that all three of them were tucked into the little carpet indents right next to furniture, so a vacuum could miss them.

Strippers or your ermine is pooping them out

To the best of my knowledge, I didn't have an ermine in my room.

Are they actual diamonds?

They're quite brilliant. While the odds are against it, I want to believe that they're real. They sparkled enough to get my attention.

I think it's pretty clear that a "ho" got slapped by her "pimp" resulting in a loss of some diamonds from said pimp's ring. If I understand it correctly, this a fairly common occurrence in the "pimpin" world, and is required to maintain the requisite level of effort and loyalty among the pimp's "bitches".

That would explain very well why they were scattered all over the room.

I wish I had a blacklight to check the bedspread. That could support or refute the theory.

Several years ago I bought a six pack of socks at Marshallís. They were packaged with one of those small plastic hangers with adhesive paper wrapped to keep them in place. About a week later I put a pair on and felt something painful as I stood. I removed the sock and out fell a carat + sized diamond. I was very perplexed and excited until I was able to determine that it was cubic zirconium. Iíd still like to know how that got in there.

How did you confirm that it was cubic zirconium? I'm pondering that very question right now.

And I guess it's possible that it was placed there as part of an international cubic zirconium smuggling ring. They're not going to be as prosperous as diamond smugglers, but I bet they exist.

It was a cold night outside the hotel, but not nearly so cold as the depths of the betrayal that enraged me. I had seen them enter, separately, furtively, thinking they were so clever. Pathetic shadows of the clandestine operator that I had once been.

Gaining access to their room was child's play. Hotel security has changed over the years, but there were a mind-boggling array of methods to gain access to those who understood how such things worked. The timing was the critical part -- a 911 call or scream would have been . . . inconvenient.

When it was done, I observed their bodies calmly, but couldn't deny the emotions that roiled within me. She had been my wife, and now she was a corpse. And then I saw it -- her rings, symbolizing our unity and her vow of faithfulness. I barely contained the primal scream that threatened to escape and ripped them off her hands. The large diamond engagement ring and the wedding band comprised of many smaller diamonds. I smashed them both with a hammer from my "tool kit" for missions such as this, pounding them nearly flat, spraying the stones everywhere.

Exhausted, sanity returned. I pocketed what was left of the rings and slipped out. The authorities would suspect me, of course, but no matter. The flight was booked. Soon I would be in the far east, traveling on under an assumed name to destinations unknown to the authorities....but certainly lacking extradition treaties.

My long planned revenge was complete, and yet I couldn't feel happiness or satisfaction. Bitter the last year had been, and bitter I remained.

Okay, I'm home, and I did the water float test. If the jewel floats, it's 100 percent not a diamond. If it sinks, then you have to go on and do another test.

Based on the results of this test, I was in the room of the decoy diamond smugglers whose job was to distract the international jewel thieves from the real jewels, which were being stored in another room. And apparently they succeeded since the climactic battle took place in my room, far from the actual diamonds.
