The Salty Dog

I wanted to have a nervous breakdown. He did this the night before my meet the teacher night right before school started. He didn't want to pay for earrings so he used two different types of earrings out of the bottom of Amanda's purse. One was a happy crab and the other was a cheap rhinestone. I figured- ears are small. Calm down. In the grand scheme of things he could be doing a lot worse.
The other part of the story is that I had Sam with me. We were greated by Mohawk girl. Sam, Mr. Personality, hid behind me and wouldn't talk. I had to have the whole talk with Sam that just because they look different, doesn't mean that they are bad. She thought I was Mr. Bear's mother when I came in. I am so not that old. Sam hated the place and wanted to leave. He said that, "it was of the Devil." Mr. Bear didn't charge to fix Cody's ears. He only charged for the rings. I made it clear to Mr. Bear that right now Cody wanted to be a teacher. And even though it might be cool if there were pierced teachers, it wasn't going to happen. I showed him how big the hole in Cody's ear could be stretched. I paid him double. I told him that everytime Cody came in that he really needed to take care of me by taking care of Cody. If he did that I would come by and pay him again after Cody paid him. I'm hoping Mr. Bear will keep up his end of the bargain.
