Today I made the biggest mistake EVER. I took it out. And tried to put it back in. And in the rarest of instances, I couldn't find the hole. Er... I could find the ENTRANCE to the hole, but somehow I just couldn't find the EXIT of the hole. In the end, I gave up finding the "old" end, and decided that I wanted the earring enough to just go through with it. It's a piercing-style earring. It's pointy on one end. So I just pushed it through.
So, on the front of my ear, I have one hole... but I'm betting money that on the back, I have two... and maybe an infection, who knows... though I did my best. It does sting/throb as though it's been hurt. *sigh* oh well. At least I've had a bottle-of-wine's worth of alcohol to dull the throbbing pain. ;)
