In college - I was a rebel, and I got my ear lobe pierced. One ear... the left one. I wore a gold hoop for a time.
Then I matured.... or something. Oh I know - I joined the military, and taking my one earring in and out was annoying... I think I lost my gold hoop.
So - for 20 years I have worn nothing... just a hole.
Yesterday I stuck an earring back in the hole. It worked.
SO - today... I got another hole. In the other earlobe. Now... I am an earring wearer again... only in a more normal fashion. I can't wait to get 2 gold hoops. :) I'm matured.
6 weeks... I'm wearing itty bitty silver balls for now... the least ugly thing available for under $20 at Walmart.
You know what's hard? Trying to explain to the walmart lady that I only want my right ear pierced - to match my left ear. Please. But we finally understood each other.
