I would love to post something pithy and witty and wise in honor of the occasion, but I just don't think that's going to happen. I started out the day cleaning up the mess that is made when you spend the night on the other side of town and therefore aren't available to your poor 86-pound puppy dog when he suffers a flare-up of his occasional diarrhea in the middle of the night and is forced to have an accident by the back door. A big accident. A big, sprawling, stinky accident. Poor Pudge. I feel like the worst mother in the world. I had to snuggle on the bed with him for a few minutes and apologize. I think he forgives me. Dogs are good that way.
So, anyway...I think I'll forget about aiming for pithy and witty and wise, and just say thank you to the fabulous people who visit and/or comment here, both regularly and occasionally. (Except maybe that perv who got here by googling "brother and sister peeing in each other's mouth." No thanks to you.) This is truly a most excellent corner of the blogosphere. Your wit and insight and product recommendations and all-around sage advice have made it a delight to be amongst you this past year. I'm proud to call you "blends."
Now let's take a vote. I'm planning to get another tattoo as a birthday present to myself. (It's a week from today. I'll be 45. Yes, I am old, and no, it doesn't bother me.) The tattoo will be small and all-black. It will be the word "harmony" rendered in Cherokee syllabary. (Which you can say to yourself like this, phonetically: Nuh wah doe hee yaw duh.)
(Please to ignore the gray background, which I can't seem to make go away.)
Bearing in mind that I already have small tattoos on the inside of my right ankle, just above my right boob and high up on my left arm--where should I put the new one? I'm leaning toward the left ankle or lower down on the left arm. I want it to be where I can see it, so no shoulder blade or "tramp stamp" placement. It needs to be somewhere that can be easily hidden if necessary when I do a play. Any suggestions/opinions?
