The third-room-mate went and got his tongue pierced today which turned into an interesting little adventure. Our ability to plan things doesn’t always work out too well, but some how during this strange day, things worked out.

He had his birthday on the 27th and happened to find a tattoo and piercing place that does free birthday piercings up to 3 days before and 3 days after a persons birthday. So after he slept a majority of the morning, we went and picked up my best friend and went to the tattoo shop…

…and waited…

…and waited…

…and went to Biggby; got ourselves some coffee drinks…

…and waited…

…then finally news got to the tongue piercer that we were waiting for him, then the fun really began.

There was a lengthy explanation of “do’s” and “don’ts” in regards to treatment of the piercing that will take 4 – 8 weeks to heal. That list also included foods and other ‘things’ that he should not place in his mouth during the healing process, so after the visit to the tattoo parlor, we had to do a bit of shopping.

Then we had to take my best friend back so he could continue to spend time with his daughter this weekend. I gave him a hug and headed back to the apartment with the 3rd room mate.

I foresee a very interesting time living with these guys. I love my best friend, there is no doubt, but the 3rd roommate – I’m getting used to him. This small apartment is a bit crowded, but I think things will work out.

I made dinner rolls from scratch this evening as a test run for tomorrow. I have a rather significant dinner planned for everyone which includes a green bean and rotisserie chicken casserole and fresh dinner rolls. Unfortunately the 3rd roommate won’t be able to enjoy the meal, however the goal is to be able to have some left overs so my best friend can take it to work to eat on his lunch.
