Conversations with Pita....

She looked at me through the long fringe of her eyelashes, as she slowly traced the Hello Kitty Pirate tattoo on her forearm. She took a deep breath and sighed.

Her lips pursed, she said, "Aunt Woody, do you know why you can't run fast?"

[Sidebar: How does she know I can't run fast? She's only 3 and I let her win those races. I did. I really did let her win!]

I said, "No, Pita. I don't know why I can't run fast."

As she slowly nodded her head in agreement with the wisdom of her reply, she said, "You don't have any tattoos."


So there you go. The secret of speed = get yourself a tattoo!

Today I caught diva with an ink pen when I asked why she said "I'm getting a tatoo" maybe all 3 year olds know the secret................

Shit, how many do I need?!! I have two already and they're not doing a whole lot of good...LOL
Is this something I need to do on a yearly basis? I was really thinking I was done.
Do the rub off kind count because I could really use some help in this department?

LOL. Well, that explains why Brian refers to his speed as "cat like reflexes".

By Lucy Lane's theory, my hubby must be a speed demon because he has eight or nine (I've lost track) which includes an enormous dragon on his bicep. He's the Tattoo Daddy.
