First at 34

DISCLAIMER: Girl talk in this post.

OK, I'm laughing today because I saw the post on DST about the girl who got her nose pierced. I thought it looked way cool, don't get my wrong, I'm not laughing at her, I'm amused because I got my ears pierced in the fourth grade and stopped wearing them shortly thereafter because they really hurt!

In my fourth grade school picture it is clearly visable that the cutest little gold disks are implanted in my ears, but I think that's the only time I ever had them in, seriously I just took them out and let my ears close up.

In 1994 I toyed with pierced ears again, and to my delight, the holes still worked! Of course the initial placement of the earrings wasn't fun. Then I enjoyed earrings again, I had big hoop peace signs and thought I was the coolest. Then it happened again. The pain. The infection. My already huge ears getting bigger and redder.

So I once again shelved the earrings.

Then last year when I was selling Mary Kay I won some earrings so of course I had to show them off at the unit meetings (those of you who sell know what I'm talkin' about). But the ear accountrements, along with my makeup career were short-lived. Must have been the dancing I had to do. Until now. Now I wear earrings everyday and my pain has not returned. Odd. My ears must have decided that it was OK to finally be adorned. So at 34, I feel like an excited fourth-grader again wearing little pretties. I feel like passing notes to my friends about it!! I feel like writing about it on the bathroom wall!

Another first for me this year (ready?) is the wearing of well, I hate to say it on a family blog, so I'll just post a pic. See them? Amazing right? Even more amazing is that a picture actually posted on my freaking blog. This pic probably strikes fear in the hearts of men everywhere. Avert your eyes Bill! So anyway, I never wore them. My friends did. But I just couldn't bring myself to give it a go until now. I guess I enjoyed feeling like a penguin.

But I must say I like them a lot. I am no longer wearing an adult diaper.

I don't know why I felt compelled to share that, I guess I thought you would get a kick out of it. So, I'm just a 12-year-old mentally. Hey! The 80s were rough for me! I better dispense (no pun intended) your freebie before I tell you some more uber personal stuff about me.

So I'm all up in it now with my new hoops and my tampax. Oops, said it. Anyway, next I'll probably get a pink phone for my bedroom and a poster of Fergie. Sahweet. The singer, not the duchess. I learned that the hard way.

Anyway here's your freebie, it's called "My Burnt Apple Pie" ENJOY my brothers and sisters (said in WKRP's Venus Flytrap voice). I hope you likee because I turned 50 years old waiting for sendspace to get my file ready. Sheesh. A watched sendspace never boils, I guess. But never fear, shortly it will be available on LUCKYBUG!
