Claire's pierced my ears back in 1983 at the Westroads Mall in Omaha.

I don't remember my mom filling in paper work. I don't remember a real diamond and 14k gold stud option either. But I can remember our phone number- 333-2914. Cuz we had to dial it. With our little fingers. Each time. But I digress.

I also remember Steve Van Buren's phone number, by the way- 334-1379.
