Gramma Grasshopper got two tattoos yesterday.
The looks on the boys' faces were priceless. I'm talking deer-in-the-headlights-this-does-not-compute-and-I-cannot-process-this. We're not a tramp-stamp, Daisy Duke kind of family, y'know? (Lev. 19:28)
They tried to convince me that I was only joking, but NO, I was serious. Gramma Grasshopper got two tatoos yesterday, and what do you think they are? Wyatt and Tate couldn't even bring themselves to guess. But Gunnar had ideas... a snake? (Very funny. Gramma is absolutely phobic about reptiles.) A spider? (To scare Aunty Tami with? Don't think so.) Grampa's tractor? (Cute. But no.)
I'll give you a clue: They have to do with her radiation treatment for her breast cancer. They're the size of a pencil dot. Huge relief on the part of the boys. The world is still spinning on its axis.
Actually, it reminded me of Steel Magnolias, where Dolly Parton's character - Truvy - says,
Louie brought his new girlfriend over, and the nicest thing I can say about her is all her tattoos are spelled correctly.Sadly, not something one should take for granted in the tat world.
Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
So, how's the diabetes?
But I digress. Gramma's tats are tiny and unlikely to be seen by anyone but Grampa and the doctor. 'Nuff said.
In other news, Gunnar came to me this morning with a confession. For whatever reason, he decided to get both bunnies out at once. He set them on the trampoline and bent to take his shoes off, to join them, and...
Mama, Podger did that thing he does to Polly.
Yes, that thing.
Well. Even bunnies don't get pregnant every time. But we'll be watching her closely around July 23rd. Oh boy....
So there you have it. A Bible reference, two movie quotes, tattoos, and reproduction, all in one post. You're welcome.
