I was at Claire's the other day, and they had a sale on magnetic earings; $2.75 a pair. So I bought the pair with the intention of scaring my super frummy friend. The point was to put them on on my upper ear as a second peircing. This "style" ended with Rivkah (or so they teach at the BY), and would totally mess with my friends head. Afterall, how could a decent frum girl have a second hole? Especially on the upper ear? My sister thought it was an awesome idea because my friend would definitely fall for it, and it would be loads of fun.
My friend never comes to shul for morning service, so I decided to save wearing them for shalosh suedos. I ofcourse cannot keep a straight face when I lie, so as soon as my friend walked into the kitchen (we set up shalosh suedos) I started smirking. Like this evil smirk I have.
So, there I am smiling away like an idiot, and my friend is like "Ok, what did you do?"
So I go "why do you think I did something?"
So she's like "that smirk"
So anyway, I say " I didn't do anything"
So eventually she sees the earings. And she goes "did you, um, pierce your ear?"
And I'm like "yea, don't you see it?"
So she is like "why'd you do it?"
So I say "well, I always thought it looked nice, so I decided to get it for myself"
She goes "did it hurt?"
I was like "yea, a little bit"
She went away because her little sister needed some attention. In the meantime this oldy Bucharian lady sat down near us and started chatting. She obviously noticed the earings, and was kinda staring, so my mom goes "yea, aren't they cute? She got them to scare super frummy girl." I started cracking up. My mom continued "now she's looking to get a henna tatoo to scare her as well. It will be funny"
So the lady says to my mom, "If your Anita keeps on doing this, it won't look very good for shidduchim"
I heard her. Later my mom came over and was like "did you hear what Bucharian lady said?"
And I started cracking up, and was like "wow, she totally doesn't get that I don't want guys like that"
My friend came back, and my sister was like "I'm thinking, maybe I should get them pierced too"
I was like "I don't know if you should, I think they're infected already"
So my friend is like "yea, ok" and was so obviously freaking out, but trying very hard to hide it.
I had a blast. I didn't tell her they were magnetic, so the plan is to come to shul next week, for shalosh suedos, wearing them again. Problem is, the earings are pink, and I only have like 2 pink outfits, hmm. I'll figure something out, probably just mismatch. Its not like I'm doing very good for shidduchim anyway. LOL :-).
