    That time I pierced my ears…

    I have a facebook profile. Sometimes I’m addicted to facebook. Right now I’m addicted to facebook. But tonight a friend had posted a question on her profile about what people thought about guys with pierced ears. It stirred up really good memories for me, and so I wrote a response – and now I share it with you:

    I pierced my ears once. I was sitting at the table at my house my third year in school and was looking at a safety pin sitting next to my Greek New Testament when suddenly I was filled with a desire to put the pin through my ear just to see if it would hurt. So I did. And it didn’t feel that bad. So I asked if any of my friends wanted to go with me to find earings. So I was walking around drug stores at about 11pm looking for really cheap earings… with a safety pin through my ear. Finally I found some that weren’t too girly. We went home and I went to work, removing the safety pin and popping the earing through. Now mind you, these weren’t the special piercing earings. They were just earings.

    After the first one I asked what everyone thought and they thought it was ok. So I went back to the bathroom and took the safety pin and poked the other ear and then popped the earing through. It wasn’t so bad.

    So I had earings for about a month. And then I was in this car accident, and of course when they put me in the MRI tube for the first time they pulled the earings out – and given that I’d only had them for a month the holes disappeared pretty quickly. I liked having them. Writing this story makes me think that I might do it again sometime.

      Um.. so just like that? no ice? just a quick needle through the ear huh?

      no infection?

      wow.. you are a special kind of person…

      Yeah, no ice or anything. And I guess it is sort of surprising that I didn’t get infected. I think I must have a strong immune system.

      And during the week, when I’m at school, I don’t get a chance to moderate my comments because the school web filter doesn’t allow me to. Which is lame, but just so you know why your comment didn’t get up until now…

      Daryl,
      You absolutely have a strong immune system. I remember the first time I got my ear piercing, it was so hurt and I got an infection after a week even though it was done by a professional and with all of the steril equipment.^^
