Today, while undergoing the cumbersome task of screwing the tiny silver ball onto my lip piercing, I clumsily dropped it onto the counter and watched it bounce into the trash can, where it nestled snugly into a used maxi pad. FML

That's a bloody shame, mate

Oh gosh. I guess you could try either wrapping them in toilet paper or getting a lid for your trashcan.

5 second maxi pad rule

you learn from your mistakes im sure she wont make that mistake again.

I definitely need a lid for my trash can. Can't count the number of earrings I've dropped in there, some, yes, on pads...

FYL, OP. I keep a small container with several different sizes of those damn balls because I drop so many of them. I would have definitely left that one in the trash.

Happens to the best of us OP. But for future, try doing it over the sink and put a washcloth over the drain, that's what i do and i hardly lose any lip ring balls anymore. ;)

That's a bloody shame, mate

the Australian is strong with this one

You should feel ashamed for that pun! lmfao!

At least you know where it went? Those things are pretty darn small...

Where it lived happily ever after.

Until it made it's way to the city dump.

#28 don't crush dreams :(

Now u can be the next Giovanna plowman

... Who?

The girl who sucked on a tampon for attention 2 years ago

was it used?

thats just fucking gross. what people will do for fame i swear.

That was already two years ago? Jesus Christ where has life gone..

Don't think Listerine would fix that. All piercings should come with spare balls.

call me naive, but why wouldn't listerene or some alcohol swab be enough to sterilize it?

The blood that comes from your uterus is not much different than the blood that came out of the hole when it was pierced. Dish soap and hot water are enough to sanitize this, even more so Listerine or rubbing alcohol.

But the truth will always haunt OP.

@48 the doesn't say it was ops pad tho.

Oh, it'd be sanitary but that doesn't mean it'd be fixed. Even if it were the last ball I had I wouldn't put one back on my mouth from there. Especially since OP doesn't say it was their pad.

Losing studs and backings is so annoying, but to know to it's so close yet so disgustingly far away is even worse

Ugh. I sympathize with you, OP. Can't tell you how many of my lip ring studs have fallen into something gross or just fell into oblivion never to be seen again.

I like the look and everything, but man, it sure looks like a big hassle.

That is some gross imagery there, OP. Definitely get some new metal balls.

I have balls of steel
