Today was great fun.
Sally and her sister dropped off the kids, gave us quick lessons in bottles, nappies, how long naps were for/what times, essential teddy bears, that sort of thing. There were a few tears when they left - as we'd been warned there would be, but some swift distractions and we were all good again.
Sherlock looked slightly horrified.
But we had a great day - some of which is catalogued on Danger's Post. And it was sort of hard to let them go - although Sherlock didn't think so.
So, as a result of me commenting that the baby had taken a liking to my ear, and that I was glad I didn't still wear earrings, Nameless asked:
would you ever get your ears pierced again? Do you have any other piercings? Ever been tempted/likely to get anything pierced?
And as no one has chosen to ask further questions on Lestallion's Love-In (Which seems to be taking on more titles as the day goes on), I shall answer that.
I...don't think so. I mean, I'm in no way against it, but I think people would think I was havng some sort of crisis if I started wearing earrings again. I don't know. Perhaps I shouldn't care. You can still see the holes, just about, but I imagine they've pretty much closed completely now.
I don't have any other piercings either. Entirely free of all adornment, these days. Which is a bit odd, actually. I've pretty much always worn jewellery. I suppose I've just got out of the habit.
When I was younger I really wanted my nipples pierced. I have no idea why! But I was terrified someone would find out - lots of changing at work, plenty of opportunity for someone to see and jump to all the...right...conclusions. I mean, I know now it's very common, but back then it really wasn't. Especially after '87, and Op Spanner - I'm afraid coppers aren't exactly known for their tolerance of counterculture expressionism. So I never did get it done.
There you go.
