It's Good To Give Your Children Concrete Goals To Strive For . . .


The other day I promised my son Ian-- the budding artist-- that if he draws something cool enough, I'll get it tattooed on my back.

I know you are partial to large aquatic animal designs that you won't actually ink to your body - like the sperm whale fighting a giant squid I spent several minutes of my life drawing for you in college, only to have you find some lame excuse not to follow through.

i think you should have ian draw several options and have the sod community vote on the winner. jason will have the second-place drawing tattooed on his chest.

good idea. ian doesn't understand why i won't have something he's already drawn tattooed on my back, so i told him i wanted to wait until he was a "master" at drawing. he claimed that he already is a "master."

and jason, i was in the tattoo parlour and ready to get inked, but the tattoo master advised me not to get the tattoo right before heading to daytona. and then the money was gone . . .

And then you started catfish fishing for a living, right?

Igor said...

Do you have to say "catfish fishing" or can you just say "catfishing," or does that imply fishing for cats? Or can you just say "doing what Dave used to do in college," and then everyone just knows you mean fishing for catfish, natch?

rob said...

i think the answer as to the appropriate tattoo subject is self-evident at this point

Dave said...

i'll get ian working on a picture of a young version of me catching a giant catfish. it will be very meta.
