ow, by dose...

Finally got around to having my nose re-pierced. The stud pulled through to the inside just before Christmas and I needed to let it finish healing.
Then I got busy.
So it took me... oh two months or so longer than it had to.

That's twice I've been surprised at how much less it hurts than I expect it to.

Stupidity? Excuse me?!

Gee, thanks BEB.

I happen to *like* the way a small gem set in the side of the nose just above the nares looks. It is not a religious or cultural issue with me, but it is part of their heritage for many people.

My ears are double pierced, and many women of Italian descent are able to wear earrings. In fact my Grandmother waited until she was in her 60s to pierce hers, because her mother refrained from having it done to her as a child because it was too "old country" and they were trying to assimilate. She finally decided that clip-ons were not worth the bother any more.
I also have a tattoo.
I am a grown woman of 35 and do not rush into decisions to permanently alter my appearance.
It is not bravery, it is not stupidity, it just is. The discomfort was relatively minor. I felt taking a dose or two of ibuprofen for an evening was an equitable exchange for something that makes me feel pretty.

Honestly? Don't know whether I should salute your bravery right now...or mock your stupidity. Therefore, to be fair and impartial, I will simply say "Hmm..." and let you picture my physical response;)
