I got a tattoo!

Well, no....I didn't really get a tatoo. But, I feel like I have one. On my butt. You remember that I was sick the other week ago. When I went to the doctor, he not only prescribed oral antibiotics, but, he also gave me a shot of antibiotics. In my rear. Now, this was the day that I was so sick and out of it that I was barely able to drive myself home from his office. When I got home, I immediately went to bed. For the next two days, I lay in bed, unable to get up except for a few times to use the bathroom. In my fever and drug-induced state (I was on antibiotics, decongestant, cough medicine with codeine), I didn't realize that the band-aid was still on my butt from where I received the shot. It stayed in place for those two days until finally I happened to notice it, and ripped it right off. I don't know if I was allergic to the band-aid adhesive or the latex or what, but, it left a perfect red, raised impression of the band-aid. It has now become less raised and faded to pink. But, I swear, it's not going away. So, I'm left with what looks like a pink band-aid tatoo on my butt. Lovely. I"ve always wanted a tatoo. Maybe a little flower or butterfly, on my lower back. Not a band-aid on my butt!

I've had that happen before with band aides, not on my butt but still, lol.

I think that should be the new trend. Pretty soon Paris and Lindsey will have them.

Be glad you didn't have the bandaid tattoo before you went to the doctor. Then you would have to explain to the doctor how you got it.

I'll bet a Band-Aid wouldn't have been what you would've chosen to permanently mark-up your body, huh?
