Heard at the Mall: Post #298eR4

Signs that you have dropped the ball as a parent:

Woman #1: "So Allison came home and she had gauges in her ears."
Woman #2: "What did you do?"
Woman #1: "Well, I took her back to the mall, and she agreed to get smaller gauges with a picture of Jesus on them."

I'm not kidding folks. This is real. Sounds like something Claire Dunphy on Modern Family would do, doesn't it?

Postscript: After a few inquiries via facebook, I realize I need to define "gauges."
Imagine an earring with a diameter of your pinkie finger ... and you pierce a hole in the earlobe and stretch it big enough to fit around this ...Cringing yet?

My 16 yr old- who wants to be a doctor--- has them. I figured letting them put holes in their ears was better than the tattooing that is rampant with teens. My son's gauges will close up and if need be, a small stich behind the ear to cover up his fashion faux pas... but those people who make misjudgments in tattoo...

There's a man I see around town who has gauges the size of half-dollars with a dozen or so silver hoops hung through each of them.

Classy. Really.
