ruler tattoo on arm

Years ago in high school, I decided if I were ever to get a tattoo, I would get a bald eagle with its wings spread across my entire back. I have been loyal to this decision until now.

If I am ever to get a tattoo, it would be an 12 inch ruler on my forearm. It would look exactly like a traditional 1/16″ ruler. This way, I could measure anything I want at any time. How handy would that be!

side note: i was going to do a photoshop image of what this ruler tattoo might look like on a forearm. I easily found a nice ruler image in google images. Then I did a google search for “arm”. Don’t do a google image search for “arm” unless you like looking at images of 3rd degree burns, an arm mangled by a garbage truck, and various other unfortunate things that can happen to the human arm (including tattoos gone bad).

I don’t know why I thought your hands were bigger than mine, spud. My middle finger is 3.25″. Maybe I thought so because you are taller than me.

compared to my height, I have short arms. I’m 5’11” and my arms are like 5’9″ so maybe that passes down to my fingers too

How curious … I thought that the span of ones arms was equal to their height.

You can’t be buried in a Jewish cemetary, Laura. I hope that doesn’t conflict with your plans

That’s okay. I want to be cremated, and then have my ashes brought up into orbit on the space shuttle, and shot out into space. I want to send my atoms back where they came from. It’s the ultimate form of recycling.
