I did it. Bit the bullet, took the plunge, and had holes pierced in my ears.
Been wanting to do it for over a year now, and, in all honesty, I've been mortally terrified of having it done. Totally freaked out.
I walked into WalMart today with my heart racing. The lady in the jewelry department made all sorts of nice small talk, and then did the deed.
Huh - not bad at all. Really, truly quite easy. All the anxiety for nothing!!
Why did I do this? So I could have big dangly fun earrings to show horses in! Not much of a jewelry girl, but I am a sucker for a cute pair of dangles. And yes, my dear friend-who-is-the-well-known-queen-of-earrings, I was thinking of you ♥ ♥
