I chose to have an additional hole in my head, a la an ear piercing--to celebrate my impending birthday. I got my earlobes done a long time ago. This new one is up high on one ear.
I was surprised that it HURT when she did it. Everyone had told me it would hurt to have the cartilage pierced, and it did! (Yet this surprised me. Go figure.) But it didn't hurt long, and I have hopes of avoiding infection, too. There's a plan, huh?
Why did I pay to have another hole put in my head? I decided I wanted to do something that said, "I may be turning fifty, but I'm not done yet."
Or something like that... Sometimes even I roll my eyes at me. But don't worry. This is just a clip art picture. I do not have an outfit like this. Maybe when I turn sixty, though...
