Oh Snap!


I was driving down the street the other day with Sammi, when we drove past a lady standing on the street talking to the mailman.  She was barely wearing a teeny-tiny pink string bikini, weighed about 300 pounds and was covered from head to toe in tattoos.

Sammi:  "Hmmm."

Me:  "What?"

Sammi:  "Did you see that lady?"

Me (chuckling):  "Oh yeah."

Sammi (looking conflicted):  "Well..."

Me:  "What is it?"

Sammi:  "Well, I think it's great that she dresses how she likes and some of her tattoos looked kinda cool, but..."

Me:  "But what?"

Sammi:  "But I think if she’s gonna stand around on the street in a bikini like that, then maybe she needs to spend a little less time in the tattoo parlor and a little more time in the gym..."
















I am participating in the Dude Write Starting Lineup this week where you can find some excellent posts by other "dude-bloggers".

  2. Have you ever seen a tattoo on a fat person who has lost a lot of weight? A tattoo of a butterfly ends up looking like Yosemite Sam. Not a pretty picture. Literally.

  9. On Snap! is right. If only we could have a little recorder with us all the time that recorded the words of wisdom of our children and then play them back when needed to hear them again.

    Sammi is wise beyond her years. You go girl!

    Great post, I had to read this out loud to my lady and our daughter. We all laughed and Brynn (6) agreed with Sammi.

    1. She's pretty logical all right - but she's not quite a teenager yet - she's only seven. ;)

  11. Your imagery was great. The subject was not. Put some clothes on, lady.

    And you've got a smart one on your hands in Sammi.

  12. What a sweetie. She obviously was taken aback by how the woman looked, but she criticized her so gently. Love that!
