Girl #1: Oh, man! So, for Christ­mas my dad is let­ting me get my car­til­idge pierced! I’m so ex­cit­ed!
Girl #2: Oh, man, that’s so cool! I want to get mine done, too.
Girl #1: Yeah, I’ll on­ly ever get my ears pierced. Every­thing else is so gross and weird.
Girl #3: Yeah, well, I have my clit pierced — do you think that’s weird?
Girl #2: What’s a clit?
