Dear kind readers,
The end of an era has come to pass.
For three glorious years I have worn this nosering proudly. Neither rain nor snow nor hail nor sleet could make me take it out. But like all good times, these things must come to an end.
It is time to remove the precious ornament from my nose and begin a life of real grownupcy. I cannot be a professional in this bigoted world with it. Though the decision was a tough one, I have descended upon the path of responsibility. My family needs my financial support. I must rise to that duty at any cost for all our sakes.
The ceremonial Removal of the Ring shall occur tomorrow at 5.15. Please keep a moment of silence in honour of this bitter moment.
My nose shall look forever naked and too big for my face.
