Cosmetic surgery isn’t something at the top of my bucket list. It’s not my sort of thing.
I happened to have a conversation with someone in the local pub about cosmetic surgery and the inevitable question came up asking whether I would have it or not. My answer was an emphatic NO before they’d even finished the question. Of course, you can see the deep meaning conversations I have when I go to the pub. It makes a change to the normal ‘best cribbage moves of the week’ sort of conversation.
Whilst I sat there listening to the conversation, I started to think more about my reasoning for being so against the surgery. Lo and behold, I think alcohol may have had a little influence, I chimed in with, ‘well, I wouldn’t mind having my earlobes removed!’ Someone answered, ‘your earlobes, why?’ Because my earlobes are too big and as I get older they seem to get bigger.
I don’t think my ears are that big, it’s just the earlobes make them look a lot bigger than they really are. One of the old boys who was listening in to the conversation shouted over, ‘Dan the Farmer had huge ears, propper Indian elephant ears he had. They were so big he had to have them pierced so his poor wife could watch television!’ Everyone fell about at that little nugget.
Yes, our ears and noses keep growing: Truth or Myth?
