Dear Bora,

Remember that time you wanted to get the top of your ear pierced, but you were scared to go alone so I went to get it done with you? Remember how I kept mine meticulously clean and you didn't? And do you remember how after a few weeks my upper ear had swollen so much that you could no longer see the earring and all the kids at school called me "Tomato Ear" and I had to go to the doctor and have it lanced and drained and then have the earring pulled out with pliers all the while getting a lecture about the dangers of piercings?
I relived every painful moment of the experience today as I listened to 2 middle school girls talk about getting their ears pierced and thought that since we went through it together the first time, you should have to remember it with me.
