Two days I received not one, but two odd commentary from two different people.
When I was sitting at the hair dresser’s, we were talking about my hairdresser’s life, what she did before and when we came to children, I told her I have 4.
“4!!! Children?! 4??? You are married? Really? I thought you are single the way you look….”
I know, (she said so herself) she meant it in a nice way, but I wonder:
Am I not marriage material because I am heavily tattooed? Don’t I look like the type who could be married? I found that really odd.
Forward hours later:
My sister phones me. We updated each other what happened in each others lives in the past week and so I told her all proud, that I finally got my throat tattooed. And so she says:
“You still get tattooed?!?” She sounded really surprised, maybe even a bit shocked.
Why wouldn’t I still get tattooed? Are only people under 40 are allowed to get tattooed? And/or people with less than 4 children? Unmarried single human beings? I don’t even look 40! Usually people would say I look 30!
Maybe it was just her overall stuck up opinion on how to live your life. Don’t get me wrong, I love her and I wished I could see her on a daily basis, but we are two very different people so I don’t hold her odd comment against her… but it still made me wonder.
