Subject: RE: Sorta BS: Tattoos & Piercings
It's 1942 and my Dad and his friend are going off to war. His friend's father took them to the railroad depot and as they waited for the train, not much was said. Dad had said his goodbye's at home amidst the usual "Be carefuls and Come home safely" type advice. His friend's Dad said nothing, but as they prepared to board the train, he finally spoke:

"Yeah Dad?
"There's somethin' I need to say to you."
"Okay Dad....."
"Son, I should've told you this before....."
"Yes Dad?"
"Boy, whatever you do....Don't get tattooed."
