bye bye

It is the end of an era.

Last night as I was brushing my teeth, my tongue stud fell out. Well, okay, the entire thing did not fall out, but the ball on the top had become unscrewed and when I spit in the sink, it came out and down the drain it went.
I have many other little fasteners (can I just write "balls"?) for the top of my tongue stud, but I stood there and debated - to leave out or not to leave out the tongue stud?

I decided to leave it out.

I am not defined by my tongue stud. I am past the phase where I hoped that when people realized I had a tongue stud, they'd think I was so cool. Tongue stud or not, I think I can be pretty cool. (When I'm not so sleep deprived?)

Anyway, 9 years ago I got my tongue stud (in New Zealand of all places!).

Last night I took it out. (Or rather decided to leave it out.)

I don't regret it. I don't think.


  1. I think you're SUPER cool without it...and you'll always have the scar to prove it now haha

  2. wow! that IS the end of an era.
    I remember talking about that in the car on the way back from mac years and years ago...
    And I agree thar you're super cool without it.

  3. darling vanessa,

    you're SUPAH cool & beautiful with or without it. (:

    i'm just curious..can you feel the hole??

  4. funny to read this post because the same thing happened to me last May, at my MET, with my nose ring. Not a very long era (a year or so I had it) but it just fell out in my sleep and we actually never ever found it in the sheets or anywhere...

    Before that I was debating on whether or not to keep it for the wedding photos, and then it was just gone. Jess, my MET roomate said it was fate :)


I love hearing from you!
