Is it the idiot gene at work or simple teenaged shenanigans?
Advertisements [?]
#3 son has been wanting something he calls a 'bull ring'. Said procedure has been denied him until he's older (16-18 range...he turned 14 a few months back). #3 son wandered upstairs early this afternoon with this ring in his nose. A ring with a nut hanging off it. He was asked to take it off (I figured it was just a fake -- he does that from time to time to see if I'll take the bait). He grinned and reached up to do it...and he'd tightened the ring too much and it wouldn't budge.

Took him 5 minutes to put it on. 3 1/2 hours and a lot of eye-watering (not to mention vegetable oil, butter, ice and, finally, two pairs of pliers) to get it off.

And we call his brother 'bonehead'.
