No tattoos and never plan to have any. Funny story though: Back story, my parents were extremely conservative. We were not allowed to wear make up nor have our ears pierced, etc., so of course, the idea of a tattoo was completely out of the question. Anyway, a few years after my dad died, Mom went to Fla to visit family. My cousin's husband manages a souvenir shop in Panama City, and she stayed at their house. She returned from the trip in the evening, and early the next morning she suffered a stroke. Of course, I drove from Kansas to Colo Spgs to see her at the hospital. When I got to her she was moving in and out of consciousness, but when she turned over, I saw a huge, garish tattoo of a dolphin on her shoulder
When she finally did come around, she had a speech aphasia and didn't explain the tatt, but she rolled her shoulder and kind of grinned
I called my cousin and had a WTF talk with her. She told us it was a strong but temporary tattoo that her kids had talked Mom into getting. Well fine. Only thing was, Mom was working for the University, and several professors and a dean came to visit her, and there she was with her tacky tattoo and no way to really explain it. I was so glad when the damn thing wore off, but it makes me laugh to remember her letting her freak flag fly a little.
Today's run was 6 x 1/2 mile repeats that were no fun. I thought if I took an extra day and tried them on Wed instead of Tues they wouldn't suck so much. I was wrong. I think intervals in the summer just suck. Maybe intervals at any time just suck. When I was running back to house, I found DH out taking a walk. He warned me that there might be rain coming
I was already saturated with sweat and I asked him what difference it would make
Wouldn't you know, I got back safely and it never did rain
Bonus: Tie between the bride whose bright blue (and ugly) tattoo showed through the lace on the shoulder of her wedding dress (why not put some gauze over it, cuz, girl, that looks awful) or one of my co-workers who has a huge collection of tatts all over that are very different styles and colors, so there's no consistency, no coherent statement. It's a safe bet that alcohol was involved with a few of her acquisitions. She's cleaned up her act a lot, but the ink remains.
