Esoteric Tips #88

If you get a tattoo on your upper arm and choose not to mention it to your cow-orkers, don't say anything funny while it's healing. And especially don't say anything so funny that one of your cow-orkers feels compelled to give you a friendly slap on the shoulder.

Ouch! :-(

Now why would you do something like that...?

Mine are on my thigh...less likely to be touched there...less manly too I guess....

I just got a tattoo recently (my first one) in the middle of my upper back. Exactly where all my huggers like to rub...eeeeep. It's been a painful couple weeks. :)

It's looking like I'll be up in the Atlanta/Alpharetta/Roswell area next week, so there's a greater-than-zero chance that we'll meet. :-)

If so, please remind me off the bat if at all possible. I'm as huggy as I am forgetful, which probably isn't a good combination in this case...

Oh, awesome! I'd love to meet ya. And no worries - it's pretty much healed now, no more ouchy. :)

Y'know, when I had to get my booster shots to enter high school, I got them in the morning and went back to Jr. High after lunch. A girl who hardly ever talked to me came up to me in class after my shot in the upper arm, made a joke, then punched me right on my shot-site.

There's something about injuries ... it's not just that you're more aware of being touched because it's injured, but somehow people just get this feeling that they simply must cause you pain on a site that is already sore even when it's out of character to do so.

Fortunately, being slapped on the ass is still rare even in my business, or else I'd never get over being sore!
