We all have some innocent secrets we keep from our parents. Twitter user Sydney Allenn's is that, back in June, she had her nipples pierced as a birthday gift from her sister. After a trip to the doctor, however, an unexpected chest X-ray awkwardly outed Sydney in front of her mother.
Sydney wasn't expecting her mom to pick up on her new bling:
Since I don't usually have my shirt off I thought it would be a very easy secret to keep.
My mom found out I got my nipples pierced today https://t.co/BCRE1dz68f— Syd (@Syd)1540301872.0
Apparently, Sydney and the doctor found the situation a lot funnier than her mom:
My mom [sic] saw my piercings as soon as the X-ray popped up and the doctor and I started laughing hysterically.
Sydney's mother had only this to say:
We'll discuss it later.
Twitter users wanted to make sure Sydney was ok.

Twitter had a lot of questions. Did getting the piercings hurt?
@CydneyClouse Slight pinch. If you get a good piercer that does it fast not bad at all!— Syd (@Syd)1540400114.0
It turns out Sydney wasn't the first person to find herself in this situation.
