the year of the TAT
We are walking down the road a minute ago with the beagle and the wife is all lovey dovey and such, and takes my arm and sez
"this is the arm with my initial on it" and I am like
"YEP, one year ago today" and she is like
"I thought it was March 15?" and I am like
"nope, easy to remember: the day after St Pat's" and she is like
"Tat on the day after St Pat's, first St Pat's then tats, first Pat's then tats"
kinda making a song of it....
Many of you remember all this. In 1994 me and the missus are driving near our home in New Hampshire and we go by Dastardly Dan's Tattoos in Rindge, NH and I say "Hey, I'd get a tat!" and the wife is like "what of???" and I am like, because it pops right into my head, "I'd get a blue M for your initial in a red star because YOU are the star of my life, the center of my life" and she is like "nice, but NO" and the years go by and I am always like "I wanna get that TAT" and she is like "NO" but last winter I am like "I am getting that tat before my birthday" and she is like "NO!!!" until I remind her "it is because of YOU. TO HONOR YOU!" and I had drawn this tat and I held it to my arm and she is like "well, if you put it that way, I will drive you"
