...But Prince Albert Did It!
Conversation overheard in a beauty salon between a mother and her sixteen-year old daughter (who already has pierced ears and pierced navel):
Daughter: "I'm getting my tongue pierced."
Mother: "Oh, no you are not. You can get your nose pierced, but you aren't getting your tongue pierced until you are eighteen."
Daughter: "YOU have a pierced tongue, why can't I?"
Mother: "I didn't get my tongue pierced until I was 21."
...and I am sure someone out there is reading this and thinking, "Yeah? So?"
