Mom decided that at the same time she took me to the jeweler (this was before there were piercing shops at every mall), she'd take my sister and let her get her ears pierced too. Boy, I was mad about that. I had to wait until I was twelve, and my sister was only ten. How unfair! But now I look back on that whole thing with a parent's eyes. Mom probably didn't want to go through the whole "watch your kid get holes put in her ears with what looks like a giant staple gun" more than once. Better to get both girls' ear-piercing done on the same day.
Naturally, the highlight of the whole day was picking out earrings! There were so many choices. And I couldn't wait until the four-week healing period was over so I could change my earrings and wear cute dangly ones. Of course, those were against the rules at school, and with a short haircut I couldn't hide that I was wearing them. After all, if you've gotten your ears pierced, the last thing you want to do is hide them under your hair!
