A Cigarette in the Earlobe

I’m very open minded.  I don’t care if your gay, straight, pierced, tattooed, whatever, as long as you’re a good person, who gives a rip?  I guess that’s one of the reasons I’m always being called a hippie.  (I find that complimentary, by the way.)

Now, that being said, there are 2 piercings I don’t get.  The tongue.  Ew.  Not for me.  The gauge in the ears is another.  I was just coming up to the radio station, and I saw this twenty-something guy with a cigarette in his ear lobe!!!  Seriously?  Seriously?  It looked beyond ridiculous.

I have tattoos and piercings, as do most of my kids.  In fact, my youngest is going to be a tattoo artist, and is gauging her ears.  It was so funny when I busted her, as she thought her “new earrings” would fool me.  After about a month, I let her in on the fact that I knew, and that’s as far as she goes with the size until she moves out.  I swear, she almost dropped with shock.  I wish you could have seen it.

I know that one day my step-son, Adam (who has gauges bigger than his head) and Taylor are going to come crying to me to help with their stupid looking ears, and I will just laugh hysterically and tell them they’d have better luck asking a box of hair.

I know, I’m just too out of touch.  Not even.  I just think, “Will I be loving this in 10 years?”  If I don’t know, I don’t do it.  After seeing cigarette-in-the-ear boy, I know I have chosen well with respect to my ears.
