Did I Mention That ...

...Lisa got her ears pierced for her birthday?  All of her very girly girl friends at school have their ears pierced, and she's been wanting to have it done.  So the Friday night before her birthday off we went to Claire's.  Christian was betting her a dollar that she would cry ... (meanie!)  Two ladies did both ears at the same time, so she wouldn't chicken out after the first one.  One ... two ... three!  Snap!  No tears, just a look on her face of "oh no!  Don't cry!" and she was done!  She has been soo good at cleaning them three times a day, and is already counting the days until she can take the gold studs out.

Now ... my mom and dad made me wait until I was 14 to have my ears pierced.  I think my sister was 16, and Mom still had to hide it from my dad.  What's with that?  I remember going to the baby nursery in the Philippines one time (don't know why in creation I would have been there?) but all the newborn little baby girls had their ears pierced.  Guess they circ. the boys and pierce the girls?  I guess I don't have a problem with it, I just don't want her wearing big ol' chandelier dangly dangle earrings until she's much older.  Studs are okay.

When I was 16 I got a wild hair and decided to pierce an extra hole in one of my ears.  I did it with a giant tapestry needle, some ice and a cork.  No problem!  Of course my Dad nearly had a conniption fit when I came to the dinner table, thinking maybe his daughter was going to join a punk band or something.  Oh well ... I still have that third hole and occasionally let my freak flag fly.  Oh, how my children would cringe with embarrassment if they heard me talking like that!

David is off this Wed. on The Great Cactus Tour ... he and his brother and a bunch of other guys are going to Arizona to play golf.  Not just play golf, but Play Golf.  We're talking 36 holes for 4 days in a row.  Mmmm boy!  Sounds like fun to me!  (Note sarcastic tone and eye roll).  But I know he will have a great time.
