Someone near and dear to Jerry’s heart (NOT ME) did something that she’s been wanting to do for a long time. She got her nose pierced. Good for her.
I remember when Kelley (hi, Kelley!) got her nose pierced one semester in college — she wore a bright blue sapphire stud in it. She did it for a project for one of her theatre classes. They had to make a significant physical change of some sort, and then record people’s reactions to it.
It looked really good on her — I do remember that — because it made her bright blue eyes jump out at you even more than they already did, and she was in a funky stage where a nose piercing just looked good.
But I also remember pondering why *I* would never get a nose piercing. Reason #1 is that I rub my nose a lot. So I’d either break that habit (likely) or scratch up my hands. Reason #2 is that, frankly, I don’t like the idea of snot in my jewelry.
Maybe I’m just persnickety about such things.
But I’m happy for Jerry’s friend. May she never have snot in her jewelry.
