The tattoos!

This pic was taken after the Derby City bout in Louisville (which we won, more on that later).
As you can see, the tattoo is PINK! And you can take a look at Dill’s chicken!

I’m branded!

This way, if I ever get lost and wander over to another derby league, they know where to send me back!

Donnie at Metamorphosis did the ink! It’s hard to tell, but it’s this awesome bright pink color! I love it!

He also tricked Dill into redoing his chicken finger. I say tricked, because Dill was just there to watch me get done. Then Donnie said he wanted to touch up a couple spots on the chicken. It took a bit to get Dill in the chair, since a tattoo on the side of your finger HURTS! Once he got Dill in for it, he went ahead and redid the entire thing! Poor Dill. He would be cracking a joke, stop for a minute when Donnie hit a tender spot, then start up again.

Speaking of hurting, my tattoo is on the side of my hip. I thought that would be a nice, easy place to get tattooed. I have a pretty high pain tolerance for ink. My arm was fine, except when it got close to the armpit. That was tender. Shoulder was nothing. Neck wouldn’t have been too bad, it was just sitting in the chair for over four hours with my head dropped forward that hurt. My foot… okay. That one I will totally admit hurt pretty darn bad! But my hip… I figured nice fleshy area, I kept away from my hipbone.. shouldn’t be a big deal right? Yea… it hurt. Apparently that is a nice and sensitive spot! It wasn’t the worst ever, but it caught me off guard!
Hip checks at practice the next day were pretty fun too 😉

What I learned…

I truly believe that you are never to old to learn something new! For instance, yesterday, I learned that you should not try to make a hard boiled egg in the microwave!
Since it’s close to a bout, my diet consists of lots of protein, no sugar, and I try to avoid white flour. So I eat lots and lots of veggie patties, fruit, and… eggs!
I was having a crazy craving for hard boiled eggs yesterday at lunch. I decided that I should try and MICROWAVE ONE! Yea, not my shining moment here! So I stuck an egg in a bowl, put in the microwave, hit 5 minutes (I know! I know!) and walked back into the office to work on the schedule. Dill was at his desk behind me, and all of a sudden we both heard “BAM! CRASH! CLANG” and saw a measuring cup go flying onto the floor of the kitchen! WTF???
Right. So what I learned.
If you try to make a hard boiled egg in the microwave, and it cooks for too long, the door to the microwave will fly open, the egg will explode everywhere, and anything that was in the path of the door will go flying onto the floor. Also, you will be cleaning up egg for at least an hour.
I need one of these: https://www.buyegggenie.com/Default.aspx?MID=535494

I could totally be in the infomercial too! You know how they give someone a task to do the “old” way. Like opening a ziploc bag! “Why struggle to open those hard to open ziploc bags! Introducing the bag genie! For 3 easy payments of $19.95 you can end the struggle of trying to pull and pry your food out of the bag”!
I would make the perfect idiot sighing and blowing my hair out of my face as I cleaned exploded egg off the wall!

Beaver Pelts

Ever feel like some days, no one gets your sense of humor? See my coffee shop is not the uptight corporate coffee kind of place. We all get along, and while we work really, really hard, we all have a good sense of humor and goof off a lot too.
One of my employees, stuck a little sign right above the visa/mastercard sign that says,

Now, Dill and I thought this was pretty damn funny. For the most part, other people, if they even notice it, think it’s pretty funny. But then I’ve had the odd ones…
A couple months ago, this woman came in, and I swear, the second sentence out of her mouth was, “I’m from San Fransisco”. Which wouldn’t sound odd, except it was in response to, “What can I get for you today”?
While I’m making her drink, she spies the beaver pelt sign. Then the conversation turns into something like this:

Customer:”What the heck? You guys used to accept beaver pelt”?
Me: “What? Oh, no, that’s a joke”
Customer: “That’s FUR”!!!!
Me: “Yea, I know. It’s just a joke”
Customer: “Man, I knew I was in backwoods Indiana, but this is crazy”.
Me: “No, not that backwoods. It’s just a joke. One of our employees put it up there as a joke. Like, instead of we don’t accept out of state checks. We don’t accept beaver pelt”.
Customer: “How long ago did you stop doing it”?
Me: “Is this like, a hidden camera show”?
Customer: “What”?
Me: “Here’s you drink, have a great day”!

I know, that’s just one oddball right? Except for the past two weeks it keeps happening! Not that extreme, but a lot of, “I don’t get it”, and “what’s pelt”?

Maybe it’s good that we all work together, since we’re the only ones that find each other funny!
