Wow!! Well, of course I've over-eaten, and gotten drunk. And just for the record, I do
exercise every day, and I haven't eaten fast food, in any way, shape or form in over 7 years!!
The difference, obviously
, is that a tattoo, is permanent-no matter how much you "loved Sadie" in 1982, once shes gone, so is its relevance and you simply look like a fool.
I think LEFSElover hit the nail on the head-One should always be careful about expressing "faith based opinions" in an open forum such as this, and its a lesson I won't soon forget. While some who responded chose to "read past" my question and draw their own conclusions as to what I was really
asking, I would like to assure them that my question was simply what it was, as written.
And while it is sage advice to be sure, I don't feel the need to "cowboy up"(?) one way or another. (just for the record, theres a 17 year old kid down the street from me with that bumper-sticker on his pick-up-along with a pair of yosemite sam "back-off" mudflaps)
Thanks to all of you who contributed constructively
to my thread, especially Ghettoracingkid-your perspective on the subject made the decision an easy one, and I'll be going in this week to have it done (I'll PM you with a picture)
For the first time since I arrived at DC, I am unsubscribing to my own thread. It truly was a mistake to approach this subject from a faith based perspective.
