Lunchtime Phone Conversation



Biggy: How many people under 35 do you think have tattoos today? I mean, percentage-wise.

TR: I dunno. It's not something I really think about.

Biggy: There's this girl jogging by the office who has a big one across her back and another on her leg. Other than that, she just looks like an ordinary girl. She could be Georgia.

TR: Hmmm...

Biggy: I have a feeling people are going to make a lot of money doing laser removals in about 20 years.

TR: Probably. Seems like there was something I needed to ask you before I go---Oh yeah, can I have a puppy?

Biggy: Why don't you just get a tattoo of a puppy. It would be the same thing, really. It would sit on you; you could take it everywhere you go.

TR: Why don't you get a tattoo of a wife?

That was a very funny conversation. Why don't you two come to Denver and our tenant the tattoo artist can fix you both up with some beautiful tattoos since Randy and I will never take him up on his offer of tattoo discount even though he's really talented. Also, I agree with Biggy's theory - a tattoo removal shop just opened up a few blocks from us.

Seriously. That tattoo of your pitbull on your bicep that seemed so cool when you're 25 must certainly lose its luster when you reach 40.

you totally need a new puppy.

sorry to disagree dahlins' but i'm 62 and plan on getting my 4th tattoo in september ( really something to brag about, huh?). and greg, aren't you pushing 40? 40 will suddenly seem very young when you get there.

HA HA. I hope you really said that, 'cuz that's the sort of thing I wish I could come up with on the fly.

Oh, and my new pet obsession: hedgehog.

Hedgehogs do that self-annointing thing where they spread their own saliva all over themselves in a foamy mess. I saw my neighbor's do it. It's pretty gross.

I always love how people always worry about what tattoos are gonna look like when we get old.(I have 4 also) When I'm 80-90, I'll take any distraction I can get.... my biggest worry would be soiling myself.

Tania Rochelle said...

True, Ads. In the vast list of our regrets, that one probably shouldn't be up top.
