"If you’re happy and you know it……Grit your teeth."

Today my classes got canceled so Colby and I decided to go out and about in our big ol’ town. First stop a billiards place. We had to go see if the shaft for his pool cue was in, turns out it was back ordered. Then I asked if we could go to the place where I got my nose pierced and look for another nose ring. So we go in, we’re browsing, the lady tells me not to change if for a few more months- I said, “ok” through cringing teeth. Colby sees a pair of plugs for his ears that he would like to purchase. They’re a 4 gauge and his hears are gauged at a 6. For any of you who are not familiar with the process of gauging your ears basically its this:

  • You get your ears pierced at a very small gauge, but its a higher number like an 18 is a small hole a 0 is a HUGE hole.
  • Colby decides to get the earlets that are gauged at a 4.
  • The outside of the earlets are gauged at a 2.
  • In order to get the earlets into his ears he has to ultimately go from a 6 to a 2 which is a HUGE difference.

End result: Colby’s ears are bleeding, he keeps saying, “Whooooooooo,” sort of like a whoosh sound. He almost passed out as the man tapered them into his ears. Completely lost color in his face. But they just look so damn good! I’m sure the pain was worth it….haha
He just ran over and asked me to, ” AHHH IT BURNS Blow on it!”
He’s now singing “If you’re happy and you know it……Grit your teeth.”
