Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

My Nosering

The ball in my nosering fell out last night. Weirdest thing.

It was loose already because my sister decided, in a drunken fit, that it needed to come out because I had an interview the next day. This was in April, the day before I interviewed for my current job. So my sister and her two friends held me down and took it out. I went home to Steve with my nosering in a ziplock bag and asked him to help me put it back in because I was a bit too tipsy to be trusted to do it. And the ball is tiny so I would have lost it for sure. So Steve used needlenose pliers to put it back in, but he bent it alittle.

Everything was fine until last night, around 11:30pm. I was almost asleep and I rubbed my nose (I had a sneezing fit earlier and my nose was still bugged) and the ball just dropped out. I found it and asked Steve to help me again, but we couldn't do it. And I was too tired to care about it. The ring wouldn't fall out of my nose; it would really need to work it's way out. But it just looked weird - this ring with a big gap in it. Much like the scene in Speed when, in the bus going 60 mph, they jump the freeway that's not finished.

So I used my lunch hour to go to Laughing Buddha, where I got the piercing 5 years ago. I got a new ring, with a ball that is fixed to one end of the ring. But it had to special ordered. So in the meantime, I have a little silver stud with a fake stone. I feel like I have something in my nose. I feel like I'm going to sneeze any minute. I can take this one out - it's easy. It literally just screws in. So now I have options and can accessorize appropriately.

I wonder how long it will take people at work to notice I don't have the ring anymore?
