    •  My 17 yo niece is demanding a tattoo for Xmas (3+ / 0-)

      She's not getting one. If I hadn't witnessed it, I wouldn't get what you mean about demands being what they are.

      There was an argument that I could hardly avoid hearing between her parents and her. Reasoning had little to do with the argument. Emotions prevailed. Her ending statement was, "Take everything off my Christmas list! All I want is a tattoo or nothing at all". Her father is seriously considering her request. Insert eye roll here.

        When our son was in 1st grade his very cool friend Jacob had an earring. Son asked if he could get an earring, too. I said, yes, once you're 18, if you want an earring, you can get one.

        He didn't really want one. He just wanted to know the answer.
