Life can be full of regrets. Recently, I was thinking to myself, “Dear small heart tattoo with flames coming out of the top, I am so happy I never got you.” I was close, I have to admit. Yes, I know you’re thinking. “But Lisa, you’re really really Cool. I can’t believe you almost got a tattoo of a small heart with flames coming out of the top. On the right upper side of your back! I can’t believe this. You are really really Cool. How could you have almost done something so totally Not Cool?” Well, I can answer that: Pot. And lots of it.
I also have a problem with anything that seems like a “special offer.” I cannot say no to “special offers.” Since I am really really Cool, I find that I am getting “special offers” all of the time. People offer me deals on all kinds of things. Cellphones, groceries, and things at stores that only cost $1. Naturally, this is what happens when you are really really Cool, like I am.
I was in Oceanside, and I was 17 years old. A guy who someone I was with knew a guy who just got out of jail (this clearly was a really really Cool Situation) and wanted to give my friend and I FREE tattoos in someone’s garage. FREE. This was a serious special offer.
However, I could not stop smoking the pot. The really really Cool heart with flames tattoo I had discussed with my friend, who agreed this was a very really really cool tattoo to get, started seeming like too much of an effort to get up out of what was a very comfortable chair and physically go get. Plus I could not drive a car. I was hungry.
Needless to say, although I am very happy that I did not get this tattoo, I seriously regret not coming up with the idea of the tattoo pictured above. THIS is a seriously really really Cool tattoo that would look awesome right above my right breast. Sadly, being really really Cool means always being original. Therefore, I am unable to get this tattoo because the photo shows that it is already tattooed on someone else.
