    you have a good mom!

    The danger of sticking something like a q-tip way into your ear is the possible damage to the ear drum. You can feel safe to stick these in as the directions say. For optimum protection, PLEASE follow the directions on the package.

  3. I push mine in until they touch each other! :D
  4. And it shows. :D

    are they supposed to hurt or be uncomfortable? and how are you supposed to hear the other band members talking? and how am i supposed to hear the hi-hat? i had a hard time hearing the drummer and percussionist. thanks
