smock's modest proposal for matching summa mama tattoos

| | Comments (2)

don't panic, mamaT, my anti-tat status is practically legendary ~ especially considering the fact that several of my friends sport body "art" as well as the fact that i actually fall into the fastest growing demographic for that a word?...which is middle-class suburban women, good Lord deliver us. i've even been quoted somewhere here in blogdom as having said, "i don't care how many moms have tattoos, they're still tacky."

that said, if we summa mamas were to experience a major collective brainfart and don these little suckers, i figure they must first be placed in soft, pliable places (absolutely no tramp stamps, they look way too painful) and, second, they would have to encapsulate our love of all things literary. i humbly propose the following:


too scary? then perhaps something less funereal:


oh wait. "read or die" is pretty funereal. okay. how about something with an ethnic flare?


well, perhaps we could ask our dear readers to write in and vote like they do on all those reality shows. whatsay? and, until we are ready to bite the bullet we might just try the temporary variety of these cute little buggers at archie mcphee ~ one of my favorite places to shop! check out their illustrated librarian temporary tattoos. they're totally coolmoe and très fun!


I vote we get the "Read or Die" one. I'll do it if you will.

Ha! That's a safe bet, since I know you won't do it, either!

But it makes me laugh to think of us at a tattoo parlor getting "Read or Die" inked on us. We would scandalize the whole joint!

We could sell tickets, because I'm sure people we know would pay to see us!

I think I have found my first Christmas gift of 2007...since my librarian daughter's birthday was two months ago. Maybe I'll buy a set for myself too. :)
