I guess the reason that I don't have pierced ears is that I'm not into unnecessary pain, which you can translate as the fact that I'm a coward. When I was younger I was a bit of a tomboy too, so dangling earrings didn't quite fit my image. However it's never too late to change your image, so I am planning to get my ears pierced for my 70th birthday and ask my family to give me some outrageous earrings for my birthday present. Until then, this is the best I could do. Don't worry if you can't spot the earrings - you're not meant to.
In the photo I am wearing more of a statement necklace, so it would have been too much to have worn statement earrings as well - assuming that I had any. I would of course have had to wear a simple necklace, or none at all, if I had possessed a pair of statement earrings to wear today.
All right then - so you really want to see my earrings? Here's one of them close-up!
