Another first down!

Today, I finally got my ears pierced. This is the first (and hopefully final) piercing for me. A couple of friends finally convinced me to go with them to Claire’s and just do it. Of course, we actually ended up at Icing (the line was too long), and I required hand-holding when the woman pulled out the gun. However, I made it through, and now it is exponentially easier for my parents to buy me gifts.

It may surprise some people that I did not have pierced ears until I was 19. Most girls get it done as babies or when they’re really young. My parents told me I could get my ears pierced when I turned 13, and my mom was really excited. When that birthday rolled around, though, I decided I didn’t want to do it. I was already playing sports year-round and didn’t want to mess with taping my ears.

Now that I don’t play sports, I felt it’s high time I make my ears pretty. So I did!!

  1. I’m so proud of you. What kind of earrings did you get? Take care of them so they don’t get infected. LOVE, Aunt Mona
