21/03/2008Mom: Dad's going to Brisbane next week.
Mich: Yay! I get to have dad for a week!
Mom: Ya, please don't fight...
Mich: Don't worry, we will not!
Mich: Dad, can I please get my belly pierced?
Dad: Better not...
Mich: Give me 3 good reasons.
Dad: Let me have a think about it first.
Mich: Okay, now tell me why?
Dad: 1) Because you are normal - normal people don't do abnormal things
Mich: But I want to be an individual!
Dad: 2) You don't want to deform yourself intentionally
Mich: But piercing is not deforming oneself, it can heal back if you decide to take it off.
Dad: 3) Why would you want to inflict pain on yourself?
Mich: It's not going to be painful! Even if it does hurt, I would be the one bearing the pain!
Dad: Better not la...Your mom won't be very happy about it.
Mich: Ish (and pouts and sulks!)!
Dad's usually my partner in crime, but guess he's not big on body piercing. I would understand why he would object to a tattoo, but piercing?!?!?!?! I nearly managed to convince him when we walked by a jewellery shop selling belly rings. I nearly succeeded but in the end went home without a piercing yet again! ISH!
Anyway, dad's going home in 2 days...maybe I can get my belly pierced next week? *evil grin* Hahahhahaha!!
We haven't had any fights so far (sorry to disappoint you mom, hahahahah!!), just ongoing debate on belly piercing which heats up once in a while within the week.
*I wonder why would a 24 year old seek permission from her parents to get her belly pierced? Pretty strange, but that's just me, welcome to my world!* ^_^
