"a few years back i was sitting at a table with my sister's grungy friend and her equally grungy boyfriend. i hat to sit there, horrified, watching as they took their gauges out of their ears and smelled them, trying to compare who's gauges smelled the worst. disgusting."
I'm not gonna lie, I'm completely guilty of that. I don't necessarily compare smells with my other friends with stretched ears. But, when I take my plugs out to clean and change them, I do smell them. I guess it was just because as I stretched the worse it started smelling, maybe? I don't know if it's worse, but you can smell it more than regular sized lobes. Idk, rambling. Hahaha.
