So I wake up on Monday morning, for the second time. Don’t ask. Lol. So yeah, I wake up on Monday for the second time and I have this sharp pain in my ears. Now, I’m an accessories girl. I really am. I’m all for bling and shine and bedazzling and shining as bright as the diamonds I’m wearing!! So I always have a shit load of jewelry on at all times. Four rings, two bracelets, two pairs of earrings and a pair of ear cuffs. Those are the standards and I never take those off. So when I woke up with my ears stinging I knew something was wrong. I tried to take off my ear cuffs but they just wouldn’t come off. I thought its probably coz of my fabulous nails (if you can’t tell, I’m generally a very fabulous person) so texted Bestie L and told her I need her help and because Bestie N was over at her house, she told me to go right away. So I watched Love Island first, because it is a sacred ritual to watch it in the morning and I pranced along to see my friends!!!!
I got there and had to update them on my Hot Girl Summer chronicles and the L I had recently been served. Lol. And we laughed about it and got to dealing with my painful ears. Because honestly, they were burning tf up. My whole head was throbbing. I was in PAIN!!!! So bestie L puts on her gloves. Pause, this ghel had whole gloves!! Haha who has gloves just lying around please?? What is this she does in her free time please?? Turns out she’s the fixing piercing guru because Bestie N always needs her piercings fiddled with somehow. (Side Note: we are piercing sisters.) so gloves on, equipment ready, Bestie L checks my ears and gasps. GASPS!!! Lorrrt. She tells me I’m going to need ice. And I feeling intense fear. But I need the pain to go away so like lets get the ice and fix it!!!! So we ice my ears.
I tell her to get this shit out ASAP. I don’t know what she’s doing behind there but it’s painful and there’s no progress being made and then now I’m bleeding!!! Yo!!! Haha. So bestie N comes to help as well. They’re just there gasping and saying Oh My God!! Lol. As in!!! Asking me if I want to see. I don’t!! I want to stop feeling pain please!!! Excuse!!! So after a lot of pulling and tugging and an adventure with heated scissors, Bestie N decided we just need to go to her piercings guy for him to deal with it. Because at this rate w were either going to have to cut the cuffs or snip off my ears. Snip off my ears?? Excuse please?? Have you seen how cute my ears are?? No please!! Okay!! So we request an Uber. Mind you!!! Monday is our day off. So like we are literally in pajamas!! Like PAJAMAS. No bra, slides, I’m there in uggs. Bestie N was undoing her braids so like hair half undone. Everyone is just looking their least!! But it was an emergency!! So we put ice in a plastic cup and got into the cab. Looking as crusty as ever!!
So I’m icing my ears on the way and we’re laughing about how we look and how we’re going to need cocktails after this adventure. So we get to the piercing guy. And we explain the situation. Turns out it happens quite a bit where the ball that’s like a stopper on clip on ear cuffs comes off and the edge starts digging into the skin of the ear creating its own piercing. And its dangerous coz like its not stainless steel and like the metal starts corroding and it causes infections and it’s a whole lotta whole lotta and I’m just looking at the guy like, “okaaaay juzz remove these thingzz thank you please!!!!” So first he asked us to pray with him. Lemme tell you in my head I was like Lord have mercy, am I going to die???? Whhhy are we praying!!! Am I being put under??? Is it too late for me???? Is this the end???? But I still need to know who will win Love Island and if what’s her face will ditch that toad Danny!!!!
We finish praying and I’m like okay, show time. and mans chucks some pliers looking things. Ah ah??? And he’s there laughing at me asking me what the hell I was doing not removing these things. But really, what was I doing??? I’ll tell you. I was busy weekending!! Too busy weekending to feel any pain okay!! Lol. No more weekending. In like two seconds he removes them!! And then he needs to clean the wounds and that’s where I felt pain greater than a heartbreak. Yo!! And he wasn’t even being gentle!! Just using all his manly man strength on my littu ears!! Bestie N had to hold my hand the whole time. poor girl. I really squeezed it. But in the end I was fixed and I was grateful, the back of my ears is a whole mess but that’s the back and its behind me and so it can remain there!!! So yay!! We’re done!! Let’s return ourselves home yah??? Noooooo.
Bestie N goes like, now since we’re here, si we might as well get the piercings we want!!! Lol. LOOOL. Me, who has just been saved from a life threatening piercing ordeal, is the first one to say YES OKAY!!!! Lol lol lol. So we sit there watching another lady getting her nose pierced and I decide I want that one!!! So there we are, the three of us in pajamas, with our plastic cup of melted ice (otherwise known as water) waiting in line to get our new piercings!!! Bestie N went first with a bar piercing near her ear. It looked amazing!! I was next, my little nose piercing. It was hella painful!!! More painful than my septum piercing!! Eh. It like numbed the right side of my face for a bit. But there’s something about me and piercings and emotions. I channel emotions through piercings and so it was just a coincidence that I got to do this one and I loved it!!!!! Bestie L got a nose one like mine!! Twinsies. And we took our mirror selfie, quite content with ourselves and finally headed home.
Eh pause, it wasn’t that simple. The cab guy we had called had us waiting on the street for like ten minutes, telling us he was round the corner and he was busy stuck in traffic. So there we are, in the middle of town, IN PAJAMAS!!!!!! Hahaha ah. Never have I ever run to a cab that quickly. And so finally we headed home!! Laughing the whole way about how wrong the day had started with my disastrous ears and how it ended so beautifully with our sisterhood piercings!!! Lol. If this isn’t friendship I don’t know what is!!!
S.O. FOR PROBABLY ASLEEP.
