WELL, I Never....

Normally, I don't blog on Thursdays, but I could not resist playing this little game. And with Vicki Rocho, no doubt. My measly brain is supposed to come up with a few lines about something I'd never do, never think of doing, and/or do not understand. Now, I could chatter on about some of the ideas the crept into my mind like sky diving, using mousse instead of hair gel, or becoming a contestant on X-Factor--the one where the players eat really gross stuff.

But I won't. To scary, and I haven't had breakfast yet.

But there is one thing, and it's a beauty aid mind you, that I simply DO NOT understand, would never do or think of doing.

Body Piercing.
I'm not talking about your average ear, navel, or wherever (slamming eyelids shut) piercing. I'm referring to those native traditions we've all seen on the Discovery or the History Channel. Use your imagination. You know what I'm talking about: 
  • a plate in the bottom lip
  • a rock or some cylindrical object in the earlobe
  • a stick you-know-where with twine folding the little sucker up toward the torso.
Yeah. I'm shivering, too.

There have it. My WELL, I NEVER.... For more, check out the other participants HERE!!

  1. Any piercing beyond the ears scares me!

  2. Ewwww, I'm shuddering now. I've got ONE piercing in my ears and some days I wonder why I bothered since I never wear earrings anymore. Now I can sorta understand the piercing thing from a cultural standpoint. Those folks live in a completely different society, so maybe it's a cool/prestige thing. What I don't get is when people in THIS country emulate them.

    Ohhhh....and let's not even think about HOW they pierce in the first place. They don't have some sterile shop in the mall with clean needles and all that.

    I should've added Fear Factor (or any of those reality shows) to my never list. No way, no how.

  4. Haha! The one's that irk me out (aside from tribal traditions) are the bull rings (through center of nose). I don't know why, but just looking at one makes me want to sneeze :)

  7. but you see, mousse instead of hair gel just doesn't WORK. I'm sorry. It's like putting whipped cream on your hair...

    but I'm SO with you on the piercing thing. Bleah. :p I don't even like that checker in the ear trend going on. What up with that??? :D <3

  9. I'm so with you on this one. I see kids on the college campus where I work doing the stretch out one's earlobes to freakish proportions. YOUNG MEN are doing this. Bizarre. Totally bizarre.

  11. What a fun game! I totally agree with you. I've never seen the appeal of extreme piercing. *Shudders at the thought...*

  13. I agree with you on the body piercing. When my youngest sister was a teenager she did a lot of that, and watching her tongue heal from that was disgusting.:(

  14. Shivering? My legs are crossed! LOL Yeah, I would never either. :D

  15. Oh me neither! Ick!!

    Though I loved looking at National Geographic as a kid at the women who wear rings around their necks to make their necks longer. That's not piercing, but it gave me the curious-heebie-jeebies in a similar way.
