MY STUDENTS' REACTIONS TO MY NOSE RING

I've had my nose pierced for 5+ years. This weekend, I decided to switch my stud for a hoop. Here is how my students felt about this decision.
  1. "Ms. Sullivan, when did you get your nose pierced?!"
  2. "You look like a bull."
  3. "It's too big!"
  4. "Why do you look weird today?"
  5. "How bad did it hurt when you got your nose pierced? My mom said she screamed for hers!"
  6. "Something's different about you. Are you wearing makeup?"
  7. "Ms. Sullivan, I'm sorry I told you you looked like a bull."
