Don't think that I got left out of all of the fun. After one of my surgeries last fall I had forgotten about earrings for about a month after the surgery. I realized that I hadn't put my earrings in and struggled for awhile until (with the help of a sharp needle) I got all but one earring back in. Up on top where my cartilage is pierced on my left ear, there was no way I was going to get that thing back in.
Once we got to Clarie's in the mall, I decided to go ahead and let them re pierce the hole that grew shut and get myself a little more back to normal.
Stacey went first. She had asked me a couple times during the week if it was going to hurt. "Yes", I told her. She didn't like my answer but well, I have a little experience with piercing and it hurts. Sometimes for just a minute, sometimes an hour or two and sometime for the whole six weeks til you take that thick stud out and put in an earring with a regular sized post. She was pleasantly surprised when it didn't hurt as bad as she thought it would.
Dawn did well too and before we knew it, I was up in the chair while two girls were wandering around the store looking for a new pair of earrings for the bottom holes. Leaving me in the chair to get my ear pierced alone, I went ahead and got it done so I could join them in the shopping. It was a fun day.
