How Do You Like My Tattoo?

Today I had CT Scan mapping in order to get me all set-up to be bombarded by radiation. In order to limit the deaths of surrounding civilians, and ensure the bombing focuses primarily on the bad guys, tattoos are used to help ensure the radiation hits the same spots every time.  “Wow!”  I thought. “This is cool! A tattoo!”  So, I asked the technician if she could do this one for me:

Hey Sailor, gonna be in port long?

She said, “I really don’t think that would be appropriate.  All we need are some tiny blue dots.”  So I said, “But can’t you  just aim for her navel? Or maybe the star on her left…lung?” “Sorry sailor,” she said, “three wee blue dots only. Doktor’s orders!”

Bombing commences on Wednesday, 18 July 2012 at 1400 hours.

I read your post and I thought, “Wow! The radiation technician could be MY NEW BEST FRIEND … FOREVER! (if she sticks to her guns).
You ROCK Mason!!! Keep it up.

That’s so funny Michael!! When I had my tattoos, I asked for little roses. Maybe we should send a petition around asking for something more interesting than a dot! Good luck! Much love – Bridget

She certainly attractive but maybe a bit too large in certain areas to be sure the target is hit!! Keep smiling! Love you lots, MJ

I suggest that you and Susan get complementary tattoos. I have gotten my eyebrows and eyeliner tattoo’d on, and with this duo approach, you could be together with tatttoos forever. And when you are in a retirement village and yours and her tattoos are hanging down around your knees, you would be very sympathetic with each other. Others might laugh. Not you two. xo
