I want a new nose ring. After 22 years of talking about it, I got my nose pierced as a pre-birthday gift and election day celebration back in Nov. 2006. Yeah, now my nose ring just reminds that Pelosi and Reid are jellyfish. Ha!
When I got it pierced (the PAIN!), the guy told me that I could change it in 3 – 6 months. Well, since then, it’s fallen out twice (ouch!) and I had to wait a little longer. Now it seems to be ready to be readorned. I like my current ring, in that it’s small and so far, the kids can’t pull it out. I know this because Alton spends 3 days a week just staring at it and pressing it, while I’m in bed.
I see flower ones and think they’re pretty, but I’m so not the flower type. The hoops seem a bit much to me, especially since the location of my hole, means that I’ll need a pretty big hoop. I’ve check out the rings at Indian shops, but then I get carried away with the pretty and wind up choosing something for a wedding. Which brings me back to studs.
I just can’t find any that speak to me. OMG…What? Am I trying to send a message with my nose? Lame. It shouldn’t be this hard to find a decent stud, you know? But since it’s on my face, it’s not like I can hide it with my hair if I don’t like it. I don’t want people to say, “Hello, nose ring!”, but I also don’t want them to think they’re seeing things. You know when someone has a 1/32 carat chip in this nose and you see it glint, but you’re not sure if you saw the glint and this goes on for years before your friend said, “Yeah, I pierced my nose 17 years ago.”? Well. It’s happened to me. A lot.
What I do know: I do not want a mini-fan hanging out of my nose.
Maybe I’ll get something so that people will know that I’m a superstar.
