Just Not For Me!
I don’t even know what to say!
The world’s most pierced woman, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, has added to her collection with a 6,005th piercing, the U.K.’s Telegraph reported.
Elaine Davidson, of Edinburgh, Scotland, made the Guinness World Record official in 2000 when she had a mere 462 piercings—192 of which were in her face. Nine years later, the Brazilian-born nurse has thousands of piercings including more than 1,500 that she says are “internal.” (I don’t want to ask or know any more than that!)
Surprisingly, Davidson says she doesn’t like getting pierced. “To break the record you have to get to a high level. I wanted to break the record. My family [doesn’t] even like tattoos or piercings. But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me.”
What do I say? Where do I begin?
How about with what my Dad used to say to me when I came up with some stupid idea: “ARE YOU CRAZY!”
Ms. Davidson, are you crazy!
I have to tell you, if I were in the hospital and you walked in to treat me, I don’t think I could let you. I’d be just too afraid. Call me a wimp you would like! Either that, or all I could do would be to stare, and I know that's not polite!
