    She once handed me seven pages of documented Internet research, complete with a list of "35 Reasons to Say Yes." ("It will not harm any living creature." "I won't wear the eyebrow ring to any formal occasion." "It is better than piercing my tongue.")

    I found it amusing and I admired her persistence - until the Day of the Pringles.

    We were at the market and as she followed me up and down the aisles, she jabbered non-stop about getting her eyebrow pierced.
