9 how much is that oline in the window?


yesterday at lunch i had a bagel in daley plaza, deposited a check at the bank and got my ears pierced.

finally.

after 26 years of delay, there i was: perched in the window of claire's on state street (90,000 MILLION EARS & COUNTING!!! the sign screamed) with every single tourist in chicago gawking at the spectacle of a gum-smacking 17-year-old in $90 jeans drilling holes in my head.

make that 90,000 million and one.

this is so exciting! which studs did you pick?

of course, i mean, studs for your ears. unless claire's policies have changed immensely since i was a girl, they don't go handing out hunky body-builder types with purchase.

oline said...

yes, claire's policies have changed dramatically. now you can pick either studs or a bangle. i, of course, chose susannah hoffs.

Meggie said...

Wow... How do they shoot that through your ear with the gun?
