Eyeball Jewelry

You've seen ear piercing, tongue piercing, eyelid piercing, and all kinds of other piercing we don't want to address here on these family pages.

But you haven't seen anything until you've seen eyeball jewelry.

It's crazy but true, the surgeon places this gold image just under the conjunctiva (yeah, whatever, you know, the clear skin of the eye). Some girls interviewed said they just wanted to be the first on the block to have one. It's done in about 15 minutes, about the time it takes to drink a milkshake.

You don't have to get a heart placed on your eye, you can choose half-moons too. Hey how about one of each on either eye? There's a waiting list so you'd better hurry and apply.

I don't know, I think it's kind of dangerous. I mean, what if the light catches your eye just right and it sparkles in a direction you didn't intent? You could be flirting with someone you don't even know. Forget the possible eye damage from the operation, what about the eye damage from your wife?

There are times not to flirt. When you're sick. When you're with children. When you're on the witness stand. -Joyce Jillso
