So today - in a flash of brilliance - I decided it was time to put back in the belly ring. Oh yes. 4 years out - not so easy to put back in. It kinda hurt - but I think that might be because the gage of the barbell is bigger than the ring that lived there previously.
This kid who sold me the barbell was convinced that the hole would have grown in. Nope. After a decade your body decides to give in and let it be. I have had my belly pierced since doing that was considered shocking. 14 years ago - I can safely say I was one of a handful of people who had done such a crazy thing (especially where we grew up). Then the tattoo, the nose ring and the crazy Tina Turner hair. I wonder now if perhaps I should concede that at age 30, one should retire such childish things... But it's just so sparkly and cute. The only difference is, now - I'm just freaky underneath my sweater sets and pearls. I'm such a dork.
