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.
