I bet you cannot tell what is on my mind?
A young man walks down the street with the crotch of his pants to his knees…with various colors of underwear showing and his hat on backwards. I bet he doesn’t have a job. He probably has some of those black do hickeys stretching out his ear lobes too.
Why is it that the younger generation likes the pin cushion look? Holes and earrings in their eyebrows, noses, navels, lips, tongues and only the good Lord knows where else.
Then the tattoos. It used to be only men in the Navy got tattoos and they were heart shaped wreaths of flowers on their upper arms with a banner that said “Mother” or “Sweetheart” or anchors with names. I never dated a boy with a tattoo. Then it became popular for anyone in the service to have a tattoo…often they were acquired after a
night on the town being in a drunken stupor.
Now everyone seems to have a tattoo…we saw a kid in line at Wally World and someone who was not very artistic hacked up the back of his leg with ink…it was rather comical. Far Guy asked me what it was…I turned my head every which way to try and decipher it…with no luck. I should have just asked “Which tattoo artist botched up your leg and what was it supposed to be?”
We saw some of these pin cushioned, tattooed, saggy pants persons tossing a baby in the air the other day…I mean way in the air…Far Guy and I both shuddered. Remember that old game called “Hot Potato” ? Must be a new game called “Hot baby”…it was one time I did not have my camera along.
Kids have too much money and too much time on their hands and parental units that are off in la la land IF they have them..if they live with them.
I wouldn’t want to be a parent now a days… I never had to worry about beaus with saggy pants…I would have pulled up the pants and drawers in one fell swoop and then called his Mom or Dad. The girls each had their ears pierced when they were about 10 years old… they would be able to tell you exactly when. If they would have come home with more piercings I would have grounded them for months…and a tattoos well those were for men and hoodlums and not for proper young ladies.
Lately I am seeing beautiful young brides that are only beautiful until you see the tattoos going up and down their arms…uffda…some of them look like they could be in an old side show called the tattooed lady..only there is no admission.
Times are a changing…but not for the better.
I do have one question…if you have one of those nose rings and it is 40 below zero and your nose starts to run..does the snot collect around the ring and then drip off when it warms up? I bet it would hurt if someone accidently pulled one of those suckers out too.
