Jessica has been asking for a piercing for a while now, and I have said no, not until she can prove to me that she can keep her grades up, and she can make good choices and she is mature enough to handle it. We decided that when she is 16 we will discuss it, and she can try to convince us at that time.
You may be tougher than I was with Chynna when she was Jessica'* age......is she 14 or 15 now?
Chynna got her piercings and tatoo when she was 17.
When she was 15 that'* when she started her really surprising change.
I need to tell this long story right now but this will give you all a little info about the kind of girl she is.
I remember we were in Vancouver on a weekend holiday to see the Fireworks show at English Bay. 500,000 people on the Beach. We were planted on a blanket and she wandered off to get something to eat or go to the washroom. You know what it'* like being in a huge crowd in another city away from home. Very nervous about getting split up. We had to get there early to find a good spot. A few hours went by and it started to get dark. Chynna wasn't back yet. By this time the crowd was so thick we couldn't even move off the blanket. I watched the show but didn't enjoy it because Chynna was not there. As soon as the show ended we were surprised and relieved that she showed up especially with that huge crowd trying to leave. If you've never experienced it, you should....wild time. Police would have been my call if she didn't show.
But that was not the end of it.
We asked her where she was and she says she was doing motion picture interview with a Movie director.....she had aspirations of acting.
I didn't think much of it, so we fought our way back to the hotel.
We stayed at the 2400 Motel on Kingsway. If you ever saw that movie with Kurt Russel and Susan Archette, "3000 miles from Graceland".....that'* the Hotel where a few scenes were shot. It has separate little houses spread out over a large area.
So we go to bed around 1:am Wife and I in the room and Chynna and Victor in the main room on the twin beds.
Sleep in I told the kids, we don't want to wake up until at least 7:am
I had to pee around 6:am, got up and as I was going to bathroom noticed a funny looking lump on Chynna'* bed. Pulled back the sheets and .......just pillows and clothes....NO Chynna
Wife and I are starting to panic.
Where was she.
Just about to call the police and the door cracks open. By this time it'* almost 7:
Chynna peaks in and is caught red handed.
Busted......and she is swaggering with alcohol on her breath.
Where were you both wife and I scream.
She tells us that the movie producer gave her his card and told her to call because there was a private party at a mansion and there were opportunities to network.
She went to a nearby Gas station at 1:am and called him. He came and picked her up and took her to this upscale party by invitation only somewhere in Vancouver. She doesn't know where.
Then when it'* time to come back she does know where the Hotel is but only that it was in this Movie. So they rent the movie and the guy recognizes it then drives her back.
I can't begin to explain my feelings at that time.
.....and it got worse from then on.....
