Two friends decided they would like to have tattoos. Both made certain the tattoo artist used clean needles. Both wanted 4-leaf clovers. Both on their left feet. One had a Diet Coke with lime to take the edge off because she was a little nervous about the pain.
The first friend, we'll call her... Marianne, had her tattoo first. It was exactly what she wanted, and she was very happy with it.
The second friend, we'll call her...Stacy, had exactly what she thought she wanted. But when it was finished, the 4-leaf clover was too big. And the harp was too small. It looked more like a bad cover-up job. Stacy was a little sad. She really wanted the 4-leaf clover to be smaller, so that the harp would show up better. She also found out afterwards in the parking lot of the tattoo parlor, talking to her brother, that a shamrock with 3 leaves is used to represent Ireland, not a 4-leaf clover. For some reason, she was confusing the 3-leafed symbol of Ireland with the symbol on the children's cereal, Lucky Charms. Here are some questions that MAY be going through Stacy's head:
- Why hadn't she thought of this before?
- Why hadn't she drawn it on her foot before getting a permanent tattoo that couldn't be changed?
- Why is Stacy so impulsive?
- Why doesn't she put more thought and foresight into things before she does them?
- Why does she get mad at her kids when they do things without thinking and she does the same thing?
- What will Stacy's husband think when he sees what she's done?
