“And then I woke up with a tattoo.”

“And then I woke up with a tattoo.”

That’s the title of the post by Wynne Leon in which she bares her arm with my face on it!

Isn’t she brave? Sleeveless shirt and all! She even wore me to Starbucks! Since my friend who made these tattoos wore hers with me to Starbucks, that felt like a special kind of solidarity.

BTW, when the barista asked for my name, I told her “Birthday Girl.” She sort of smirked/snorted. Smorted? But she went along with it.

Several days after my birthday celebration, I got an email titled, “Sending D to college with a little bit of Betsy on him.”

I was utterly befuddled by this. Apparently some friends who came to the brewery took a tattoo home and gave it to “D.” I mean, why not, right?

And now for something totally unrelated. I posted this picture on Facebook with the words, “Leave it to a boy to turn Candy Land into a military operation.”

A friend responded: I showed this to my six-year-old. Now he wants me to buy him a “G.I. Joe Candy Land.” πŸ˜›

That should totally be a thing, fighting diabetes. πŸ™‚

Have a lovely rest of your week, Blog Buddies! And p.s. It’s not too late to get a Betsy tattoo of your very own! πŸ™‚

  1. So much to love here . . .

    I love blogging because you can make friends around the world. And truly get to know them, which is not possible on other social media. Love that Wynne turned your tat into a post!

    I love that you said ‘Birthday Girl’ at Starbucks and then they had to call it out when it was ready!

    I love any kid who gets creative with their toys. Seriously, nothing made me happier as a mom than when my kids found a new use for an old toy/game. A sign of greatness!

    Happy Fall, Betsy!

    • So very true about making friends around the world. That’s my favorite part about blogging. I already know that if I were to ever get to Singapore, I have someone to show me around. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for enjoying this post so much, Bijoux. You made my heart smile. ❀ πŸ™‚


  2. Wow! You never know, D will go off to college with your tattoo, show it off, and you get a thousand emails from college kids wanting one cuz it’ll be the new craze πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ It could happen.

    What a creative kid, that Joe! And cute. I can hear the commercial announcer now: The other kids think candyland is all colored circles and squares and triangles. But when you add Joe to the game, the G. I. Joes get a brand new battlefield.

    Eh, sounded better in my head. πŸ˜›
