I Took Out My Nose Ring For Kanye West

It's not everyday you get cast to be an extra in Kanye West fashion show.

Yes, that actually happened.
Yesterday to be exact.
After @marshalledgar posted and tagged me in his card on Kanye casting 1200 extra's in NYC to be in his Yeezy Season 3 fashion week show [see here], I took it upon myself to apply after much hesitation. I didn't think anything of it, but I breathe, stretched, shook and sent in my weight, height and a recent image of myself. What was to come, I never would've imagined happening. Ever.
Three days later I wake up to an email from the production company telling me 'Congratulations' and I was chosen to be cast in the show. My heart literally was beating outside of my shirt. I had to reread the email several times before it sank in.
I was going to be an extra in Kanye West fashion show. I imagined that's what it felt like to be proposed to by the most handsome man in the world or given a free voucher for all you can eat pizza for the rest of your life, but honestly -- the feeling was so much better.
There were a list of guidelines all extras had to abide by and one of them happened to be absolutely no piercings.
With that being said, I was torn between keeping my nose ring or experiencing a life changing event. Mind you, this was my fifth time having my nose pierced and I was just considering switching over to a small hoop. Of course, my piercing closed up not too long after removing it. Nonetheless, I ended up giving in and I removed my nose ring for Kanye.

I mean who else would I take it out for?

I'll wait.
And let me not forget to mention, it was well worth it.
