We are collecting stories of when your mom found out you have stretched your ears. Please comment below. Here's mine...
The day my mom finally realized I had stretched ears is a pretty funny story. I first started to stretch my ears back in college. I came from a small town in Ohio, and things like tattoos and stretched ears were not a common thing, and Mom is pretty conservative.
I started off small with a 12 gauge plug, but even then I felt uncomfortable being around my mom. At this point it was easier because I was away at college, but it seemed that I was telling my mom "No" more and more any time she tried to plan anything. By the time I first saw my mom it was winter and I was up to a 2 gauge plug. The fact that I was always wearing a winter hat made things easier. I remember my mom asking me if I wanted to take my hat off, and telling her I was fine.
Later in the year I was at a 0 gauge plug and I knew it was time to finally show my mom. I remember being nervous. When she finally saw them, the look on her face was priceless, but her delayed reaction was one I never expected. "I love those!!!" My jaw dropped more than hers. After sitting down and talking to her she confessed that she always found "those big earrings interesting". I worried for nothing!
