Only 39 things to go

Well, I can strike one thing off the list.
That's right, I got my nose pierced! On my birthday. I wanted to do this when I was 20, but then I chickened out and convinced myself I didn't have the right nose for it. Lately, I started wanting it again, and now that I'm 40, it no longer matters whether my nose is "right" or not. That's the beauty of being 40 - you get a little more comfortable with who you are and a little less concerned about fitting other people's expectation of you.

I guess you could call it a mid-life crisis. At least it's cheaper than a fast car, and less disruptive (not to mention stupid) than an affair. :-)

Ok, I have to ask, is it a metal stud or a jewel-like thing? I can't quite tell from the picture, you rebel, you!

Wow, you are brave. I'm aiming for a tattoo when I turn 50. That only leaves me 6 years and 4 months to decide what to get.

Good for you for doing something you've always wanted to do!

It's just a metal stud right now, Gina, but I plan to replace it - probably with a jewel-like thing.

Congratulations! Turning 50 is even more liberating than 40...have fun.

Good for you, Heather! But be careful. I tell Meagan that she could sneeze and put someone's eye out!

Good for you for following through on a dream. I can't wait to see what you replace the metal stud with.

Did it hurt??
