And your brothers going to kill me and he's six feet ten

I lost my nose ring. I may have lost it today or three weeks ago. Dunno. This is another glaring indication of the mind-body-disconnection I have going on here. Stress is starting to hug me tighter. I did not notice metal in my flesh until it was gone. I have had it for a very long time, but still. I was always aware. It is kinda like the fact that I failed to realize that I had a long white hair growing from my eyebrow. Like a freaking Father Christmas eyebrow standing out bushy and I never knew.

I guess am off to this place later. The last time I was there was years and years ago and even then I felt like a fraud. I had to tell the serious piercer that indeed I had let a Mykonos jeweler
shoot my nose with an old school earring gun while drunk on Ouzo. I could see the disappointment wash right over his complexion. I had not went through the real process. I was not authentically pierced. Tonight might be the night.

I guess you'd call it cowardice, but I'm not prepared to go on like this...

Dying to know the end of the story!

By the way, do you think you might have inhaled it? Stress makes me sigh deeply. Did you ever have a day where you thought, "Hey, did I snort up a bug? Oh, well."

i'm sorry...stress is never good...especially at the point when you can recognize it.

Getting shot in the nose in Mykonos while drunk on Ouzo is most certainly an authentic experience. More likely your piercer was disappointed in his sterile surrounding.

I got my nose pierced with a gun in a back alley of Athens! What is it about nose piercing and Greece? Probably the fact that it cost approximately $3.50.
I'm curious to hear how the real piercing goes, you know, with a sterile needle and everything.

Skip the nose this time and go for the nip, your hubby will think your a goddess!

You're mentioning the long white hair sticking out because you saw one of my pictures, right?
