When Margie Whipple at Lucy Winters' birthday party, she noticed something unusual about the boy she Peter Brady. She noticed the pierced earlobes on the boy of her infatuation. No one else at the the party seem to notice Peter's pierced ears. Peter was still the boy of her dreams. She believed that Peter was more courageous than most boys who wear pierced earring since both his earlobes were pierced instead of only the left earlobe.
When Margie Whipple learned a few weeks later that Peter had joined the Sunflower Girls, She decided to give him a pair of sunflower earrings as a gift to show her approval of Peter wearing earrings.
