I was shopping in Aldi the other day and saw this gal, probably in her mid-20’s, all summery looking and cute. I’m not sure what made me notice her ankle, other than that it was pretty close to the generic Sprite I was getting. She had a tattoo there. Now, I’m not one opposed to tattoos. I don’t have one, but I’ve joked about getting one before. There’s that issue of the pain involved. That, and I have no idea what I’d get anyway, but then again there’s the pain.
Anyway, this girl, she had a tattoo of a “cute” skull with a pink bow. Kind of like this:
All I could think of the whole rest of the time I was in Aldi was this gal (remember, young and cute) as a 75-year-old granny with a shriveled pink skull with bow tattoo on her ankle. And I could see her future grandkids giggling across the room because oh.my.word. have you seen Granny’s tattoo? What in the world was she thinking? Was this kind of thing actually IN when she was young?
Not so much.
Anyway, made me laugh. It would be funny to hear how that actually does play out for her over the next few decades. I’m sure it was some spontaneous and fun decision at the time. Maybe not such a great one later?
