File under 'what the heck were you thinkin'?'

Okay, so I've had questions from several of you wanting to know the story behind my tatoo. No story, really.

I was just in one of my moods. You know what I'm talkin' about.

You wake up one morning and you just feel ...um, I don't know....restless, I guess.

No, rebellious is probably a better word.

Anyway, there I was layin' in bed, contemplating my fate of having to get up, don a suit, and spend the whole day showing houses. Did I mention that I spent 7 years as a realtor? Booorrinngg.

So, after waiting for about an hour and a half and being stood up by no-show clients I thought, "Hmm, ya know Kathie old girl, this career is just not for you." Right then and there I did a u-turn, parked my Mercedes in the drive, slapped a For Sale sign on it, slipped out of my suit into a pair of boots and jeans, grabbed the keys to the red Chevy pickup and went for a long drive.

As I am singing along to Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman" blasting from the stereo, I see a tatoo parlor. Suddenly a light bulb comes on!

"I know! I think I'll get a tatoo!"

So, $50 and 15 minutes later THIS is what I have to show for that one rebellious action.

So, now you understand when I say, "I'm feeling rebellious. Keep me away from all tatoo parlors", my family goes into a tizzy.

I have those days to but being stuck at home there's not much I can do about it. Except shop online that is. That's my vice.

I love your story. Thankfully, my transformations are not done with lightning bolts, just marinaded. My family could not handle lightning bolt change:-)
