Migs Blog: Happy Piercing Day!

May 16, 2017

Every morning during my news report I share what the “national holiday” is for the day.  Like National Chocolate Pudding day, or National Take Your Kids To Work Day (which for our show…is every day).

I like sharing these to point out how stupid they are, but today’s holiday hit home for me…

It’s National Piercing Day.

Now I don’t have any piercings…but one time I did…and it led to one of the greatest videos that I have been featured in.

Many, many, many years ago when I was on the Andy Savage morning show, we were giving away piercings on air…so all morning people came in to get pierced.  I got caught up in the moment and decided that I would get pierced.  I had zero interest in keeping the piercing, but I was always curious as to what a piercing would feel like. 

So I got my eyebrow pierced…and I PASSED out.  Thankfully someone started recording it once they saw me getting pale…and here is what happens when you pass out, live on the radio!

Side note…I took the piercing out later that night.  Yup…all of that, and the piercing didn’t even stay on me for more than 6 hours!
