It has just occurred to me that I’ll have to take out my nose jewelry if I want to start boxing again, and that people have told me that when you take nose studs out, the hole starts closing up in less than an hour. Hrm.
I suppose I’d have to take out the belly button one, too. Funny, when I boxed in college, I really never got hit in the stomach, because I was shorter than the guys — there would just be no way from them to get in there without severely compromising their balance and/or opening themselves up to a good whack in the head.
