    I wasn’t sure where I should post this .

    Now this will proberly make you smile and say to yourself “what a silly woman “ :D:)
    for posting something as trivial as that :D:)

    The reason for my post is ..I was getting ready to go out to our normal Saturday night dance and as usual I tried to put my pierced earrings in , and as usual I couldn’t get them lined up to get them in .... standing up ...I have to,sit down to get them in ..crazy I know but why can’t I get them in while standing :D
    I had them pierced about 30 years ago and even though I got then done at a so called qualified piercer they are not good , they are on an odd angle ..,but I should be able to,get them in standing or sitting :D

    I seldom wear earrings anymore, and my ears have closed up enough that it is sometimes difficult to put on the earring when I do want to wear a pair of them. What I do is put a tiny bit of hand lotion or face cream on my finger and dab it on the earring post and on my ear lobe.
    I still have to wiggle the earring around to get it to fit; but it slips in much easier when I use the lotion first. Anything slippery would work.

    Reminds me of my Sister wanting me to put her earrings in for her
    She hadn't worn them for months - I was so scared I flinched each time I tried - I gave up :p

    When I was in high school, I had one ear pierced. That night, the thing that you have to leave in place until it heals was uncomfortable, and it annoyed me while I was trying to sleep, so I took it out and never put anything else in there. It didn't take long for the hole to close.

    This is funny to me. Sometimes I find myself changing my footing while I'm trying to put my earrings in. I may have created a new dance step in the process.:rolleyes:

    I find I have to sit down to do most things these days @Kate Ellery, I am sure if I wore earrings I would never be able to find the hole let alone put them in... [​IMG]

    @Von Jones
    This seems akin to another type of gesture I have always wondered about: why do folks when performing certain things like rubbing their eyes gape their mouths wide open?

    I sometimes have trouble, I get it in the entrance hole but can't seem to find the exit hole. It usually takes a couple tries and my ear is all red after.

    Never paid attention if it's all earrings or a certain type with different posts.

    I'm lucky, I had all my ear piercings done in just one of those shops with the piercing gun. But they were all placed well and straight. I know some people have got wonky ones.

    I had my ears pierce when i was 30 yrs old on my birthday, but then come to find out im allergic to metal !!...Found that out the hard way, my whole ear swelled up one time..The non-lead earrings i could wear,,But were very expensive $$..so i would only wear the earrings once in a great while and then have to use an ointment to clear up the allergy infection... Finally i just gave up wearng earrings..

    Even the clip-on earrings? Are they even made anymore? I have my grandmother's jewelry which are clip-ons.

    I like wearing earrings. Many women have more than one ear piercing but it took my sister to convince me to get the one. I wouldn't consider having more.

    Even though I don't wear my pierced earrings often I still am able to fit them in the holes in my ears without to much difficulty. Where my ears are pierced if I place a finger on the back and front of my ear lobe I can feel the slightly raised difference in where the piercing was done...and finding those spots helps me get my earrings on much faster. :)
