Even after all of our decades and centuries spent together, Miss Carol still has the capacity to surprise me sometimes.

The other night, while we were cocktailing, she looked directly at me and asked-

“Does a tattoo hurt”?

And I thought for a second and I said, “Nah, it’s more scratchy than painful”


And Miss Carol said “I’m thinking about getting one. A tattoo, I mean.”

um, Really?

And Miss Carol said “Yeah, I’m thinking about getting ror tattooed on my finger”.

And ya know what?

I was floored. I mean, I was totally, honestly moved. And it takes a LOT to move me, or even make me feel anything, somedays.

She looked at me and grinned and said,”yeah I think I’m gonna do it”.

And I know it sounds sooooo completely hokey and rednecky and white-trailer-trashy but I was all like, wow. Shoving aside the trailer-trashiness and hokey-redneckiness I thought it was so amazingly cool and heartfelt and just plain rub up against me good feeling that I didn’t even know what to say.

So I just kissed her and didn’t say anything.

  1. 🙂 i like that.

  2. Yep…you done good. 🙂

  3. –>Love it! Also, I like knowing that you could pronounce your initials ROAR. Seems fitting, in a good way to me.
    My son’s initials are T.N.T. I don’t have any tattoos but would get TNT at some point because it’s just cool.

  4. That’s positively awesome. No a tattoo usually doesn’t hurt but on your finger, it will. Just to let you know. The needle hits straight bone. But if she’s up for it, that’s beautiful. I know a couple who has their wedding rings as tattoos. Forever is forever.

  5. Katie, you’re waaaaay cool.

  6. I have to disagree with Katie. I have a tattoo on my back and for the most part? Pain wasn’t too bad, but it STILL hurt. It’s a NEEDLE. Dragging through YOUR SKIN. Ouch. But it can’t be that bad or else people wouldn’t keep getting ’em, right? I think it’s cool. The moment sounds totally sweet. I hope she’ll let you photograph it once it’s done.

    • I think we’re both gonna do the finger namey thing.
      I’ll post pictures of the pain.
      And hey, speaking of pictures of tatttoos. Where’s yours?
      C’mon baby.
