Sowing the few remaining wild oats left in my basket was, indeed, fun. But it would appear that my nose is not cut out for having a hole cut out of it. After three weeks of carefully cleaning and nursing the nostril piercing, it became clear to me that I would live with the perpetual risk of developing a permanent keloid scar.
I remain enamored with the the tiny, delicate sparkle of a nostril piercing but wax furious when I envision it accompanied by a persistent bump. Those of you with more agreeable, less sensitive skin, tip o' the hat to you!
Goodnight, sweet nose piercing.
