Adrian Richards: How are you feeling?
Enis: Nervous. How do I look. Oh, wow. I have normal ears.
Adrian Richards: Should we get his mum in ?
Adrian Richards: Tell us what you think. We’re going to get your mum in just to have a quick look as well.
Enis: She’s going to scream.
Adrian Richards: Good.
Enis: That’s unbelievable.
Adrian Richards: Do you want to come and have a look at his ears?
Mother: Oh my goodness. That’s amazing. I have a normal son.
Enis: I know.
Adrian Richards: Do you want to come and have a look at them?
Mother: Oh wow.
Enis: See the bit off my ear.
Adrian Richards: This is the bit we . . . we just cut a bit here.
Mother: Going to take a photo of that Enis.
Adrian Richards: Do you want a photo of that?
Mother: Yeah, I think we should.
Enis: It’s unreal.
Mother: That’s, I want to say it again. Oh my goodness.
Enis: If I embarrass you, would you [inaudible 1:01]?
Adrian Richards: So do you want to look at the other one as well? See what you think.
Enis: Look at the other one.
Enis: Perfect isn’t it?
Mother: It’s amazing.
Enis: It’s crazy.
Mother: Don’t do it again Enis. He can’t anyway. He said that to me.
Adrian Richards: He can’t anyway.
Mother: That’s really, really good. Thank you.
Adrian Richards: He’s been telling us all about you.
Mother: Has he? I’ve been smoking all the way through it.
Question: So you have just finished your operation. How did it go?
Enis: It was very interesting I must say. Me personally, I don’t like injections. The only bad part was the injection to numb the ear. Other than that, I could hear everything that was happening, but I couldn’t feel anything obviously. So it was really weird, but it was fascinating.
Question: How do you feel about the final product?
Enis: I’m gob smacked! They look perfect again. The shape and everything is good.
Question: How was your experience with the Aurora staff?
Enis: They were friendly. They were great. We were just chatting the whole way. So I really felt comfortable, and it was all fine.
Question: Any advice for viewers out there planning on stretching their earlobes?
Enis: Think about what you’re doing. It could affect you long term, so it might not be the best option.
