I have had a super great weekend so far. Which is really nice because even though I've been go-go-go so far, it's been relaxing and fun. Does that make sense? Probably not but you know how I roll.
So do you remember last week when I talked about Tammy getting her nose pierced and I was all pussy wussy about it?
Well guess what?
Tammy freaking lied about the pain. Because it? Hurt like a mother-fucker-bitch. I'm not joking. The only other pain I could really compare is child birth, but that's kind of dramatic. So I'm going to go with stitches after childbirth. (Look that up for some fun.)
So here's what happened- I stewed all week about it. I thought I'd have the money to do it but then I didn't, and yeah--I was sad. And I thought maybe that was a sign. So then I went to lunch with Lisa on Friday which was really great because we've both been ridiculously busy since April so yeah. Anyways. We're at lunch and I casually mention I was thinking about doing it. She tells me she wants hers re-pierced and so we kind of joked about going together sometime.
Even as an adult, I can't do anything alone.
So Friday night, after dinner- Matt gives me $50- he fixed a computer and got paid. So I'm like, bonus. Then he's like, "You should just go and get it done." So I call Tammy, who agrees to drive us and she's laughing because she knows I wanted to do it. Then I call Lisa, who was in her pajamas but decided to come anyways and she'll do it too.
Have I mentioned I'm really good at peer pressure? Because I am.
Anyways- so we meet up and we drive over to the place in Duluth. The same guys were working and it was decided that I would go first because if I don't it just gives me time to pussy out. So the guy doing it was really nice and really cute. So you know, that helps. He cleans my nose, tells me that the weirdest part is going to be the tube he puts in my nose so he doesn't pierce all the way through. Then he counts to three and let's just say- it was a DAMN good thing I was sitting on my hands because I would have instinctively reached out and he was the closest thing to me. Seriously. It hurt that bad. I don't think I bled, at least I didn't see, feel or smell any but my one eye did water. A lot.
What I didn't anticipate was the constant throbbing afterwards. Seriously. Anyways- so Lisa went after me after I declared it hurt like a bitch and everyone laughed. But here's our picture right after we were both done:
Afterwards Lisa went home and Tammy & I had ice cream then went to see Eclipse again. Don't judge us. When I got home I cleaned it like I'm supposed to and then realized that the possibility of me hurting myself in my sleep was pretty good, but then praised my unintentional brain power because I sleep on my left side mostly and I have my right side pierced. Go, Sara Super Smarts.
When I woke up I felt awful. I have a fever which may or may not be related to my piercing because Olivia has a cold and I may be getting that. Which is going to be fun when I can barely move my face, let alone blow my nose. I took a shower and the shampoo?? In the hole?? PAINFUL. Ugh.
Seriously- if this thing ever falls out or heals up- I most likely won't get it re-done. I don't know what the fuck I was thinking but it does look kind of cool. I'm sure it'll look better when my nose isn't puffy.
