Top 10 Reasons I Got My Nose Pierced

I am pretty sure that everyone who reads this knows that I got my nose pierced. But if you didn't, I did. Here are my top 10 reasons for having it done:

10. It's cute.

9. Something new to accessorize! (Seriously, after I got it done I went home and tried on all of my clothes to see how they looked with it!)

8. I now have a good reason to pick my nose in public. When people stare, I can just point at it, and they nod their heads knowingly.

7. So Auntie Kay can ask "why?"

6. The warm salt-water soaks! (I think only fellow nose-pierced people will understand.)

5. Re-affirmation that I was born with a cute nose.

4. The stupid questions that I can ask about it. For example: If you are swimming underwater and you blow air out your nose, will little air bubbles come out of your piercing? (Apparently the answer is no. I didn't find this out until after I had it pierced. I might not have done it if I had known that beforehand.)

3. Reminding your family members that even if they don't like it, they still have to love you. (Auntie Kay.)

2. My goading limits have been set. I cannot goad someone so much that they will punch me in the nose anymore, so I have to stop right before they reach that point. I know, I know, it's sad that it took a piercing to get me to try not to irritate people so much.

1. It's cute. I know, I already used that one, but come on, weren't the other ones pretty creative?

I think you can put me in on "3" as well. I don't know. It's kinda cute, but at the same time...

I was going to, but then I thought, nah. With you, it goes without saying. And, it is super-cute. Even Grandma said so.
