The M Turns 40

This week the wife of my youth turned 40 and she celebrated by doing something she has wanted to do for a few years: get her nose pierced. Her friend Leslie and I took her to our normal tattoo parlor (!) and twenty minutes later she was walking out - a bit more hip, though troubled by the unshakable feeling of having an expensive metal booger.

X marks the spot.
Leslie, a.k.a. Lala, was there for sympathetic hand holding and third earring hole of her own. They tried to get me to pierce my ears, but I chickened out. It wasn't the pain I feared, but the absence of peer group support, that gave me cold feet.

We all like it! It's very much her style and looks cute and trendy. As for me, I'm gettin' a Harley.

Do students get to ride the Harley?

No, I'm not really getting a Harley. As much fun as that sounds, I am too clumsy and would probably injure myself in short order. I may go back for some earrings, however.

If your family budget is like ours, you can only afford a piercing for your midlife crisis - not a Harley.
