For the last little while, I have been considering getting a tattoo. Yes, really.
Specifically, of the RAGNAR
logo on my right calf. Ever since we did the ultra Ragnar race back in September, when they handed out temporary tattoos to do this with, I've been toying with the idea in my head. And then over the weekend while I was running, the audio book I was listening to had a long section that took place in a tattoo parlor. Maybe it was a sign. Probably not. But it still got me thinking about it again.
And then I am making that new list of stuff to do, and I think hmmmm... Should I put this on the list or not?
So today I mentioned it to my husband. Telling him of course he can't really disallow me from getting it, it's my body, blah etc, but I was curious how he'd react. Better than I expected, but...
He said although he isn't necessarily opposed to a tattoo in principle, especially one like what I described that is small and in an unobtrusive area, easy to hide in formal situations if necessary, etc... He said he just didn't think Ragnar was worthy of a tattoo! Not a hard enough challenge.
As if doing an ultra Ragnar less than a year after having a baby isn't hardcore enough or something!
I said what? Tell that to all the people who didn't do it, and thought we were crazy for doing it!
And he was like, yeah, but they aren't runners, they don't know... Now, if it were an iron Man, I'd totally get the tattoo, definitely worth it.
Le sigh. Anyway. I might do it.
