Okay, this is it. This is all I've got for now. I was considering another shot that Baron took of me on our camping trip, but until he has time to locate it on his many picture files, this will have to do. I have put this up before, I think, but I know some of my "new" Blogger friends, such as Redneck Nerdboy and Mia, have not seen it.
THIS (see above) is my tattoo. I got it on my 41st birthday. I was going to get a little heart, right on my behind, but when I got there and saw this pic of the sunflowers, I knew I had to get it. My 2nd ex, Larry, and I were still seeing each other, post-divorce, and he had volunteered to go with me and hold my hand. It hurt a lot more than I expected, but I thought I was doing okay....until about halfway through I started to feel kind of hot and light-headed. I heard Larry say something to the tattoo guy (a young, funny kid, by the way, who had a good sense of humor about looking at my backside for almost an hour) and the tattoo guy answered, and suddenly he stopped. They had decided that I was looking "pale" and insisted I have some water until I felt a little better. Apparently I was about to pass out. But then the color came back into my face, I bent back over, and he finished up.
I'm not sorry I did it. I don't give a sh-t about what I will look like in the nursing home when I'm 90. If I'm so bad off that I'm in a nursing home at 90, will I really care what the teeny-bopper nurses aides think of my sagging butt? I don't think so. Every guy I've been with since I got it has said he thinks it's sexy. It's a view only a select few have seen in person.
So there you go, ladies and gentleman. My first Half-Naked Thursday, for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy.
