This is a "lake" I frequently run past in a planned community near me. Somewhere at the bottom of this body of water, gollum clutches my loyal, stay-at-home-dad friend's wedding ring - tossed in there after his successful, narcissistic, neurologist wife began an affair with a 20-something year old (dubbed "50 cent" by my friend).
