i, um, didn’t go home last night. matter of fact i was just wandering downstairs at the car wash when youknowwho was getting out of the car to come to work. he took it fairly well, even the part about the sleeping with a guy my daughter’s age, whose name escapes me. sleeping i said, get your mind out of the gutter. hmmph.
so at four something this morning i was having a very … interesting conversation with this unnamed young man – i did ask him his name, & he did tell me, it’s just that it didn’t help. (turns out he’s generally called ‘boomhauer‘). in any case he wanted to give me a tattoo? so he drew this fascinating freeform thing suggesting lizards & vines & things. i thought lower back tats should be symmetrical? he thought that that was done too much, & i can’t say i disagree. fortunately there was no tattoo tools anywhere near, otherwise who knows? it was that sort of night. so kid was on the couch as i was headed out the door, four something this morning, & he’s saying … something. now you have to go over real close & listen perfectly intently to even have a hope of making out what he’s saying, or at least i do, i’ve been to a few loud concerts in my time you know. so i’m sitting by the couch listening & suddenly one of those waves of exhaustion comes over me & i thought, well i’ll just lay down for a few minutes. there was just enough room on the other side of the couch (big sectional thing) for me to curl up, & rest my head not entirely comfortably on the edge of a pillow. & then it was seven thirty.
it has been a long, long time since i’ve had that feeling — that *blink* *blink* wow, sure is bright in … where? wait. bright?. shit. now what? & while there were fussy noises made at first, it just wasn’t the disaster it probably ought to have been. which i have to admit has me a little miffed – is it really that easy to believe that nothing happened? am i not a MILF? (oh we could call it trust but we would be seriously missing the boat on that one). look, i didn’t have sex with a twenty year old guy, & everybody believes me. hmmph.
so, anyway, what do you think? an asymmetrical tattoo in the middle of the lower back? freeform curvy lizardy & viney? lots of earthtones?
