Love Pinky?

Yesterday, at my local grocery, I was standing in the check out line, gently chiding the young man ringing up my purchases because he did not seem to know what many of the veggies were. I told him he needed to be eating more fresh fruits and veggies. He agreed and my mom-moment was complete.

Then I was distracted by a not so young lady (well along in her 20's) who came in to purchase cigarettes. She wore a pair of lime green, low cut sweat pants and across the just a little too wide expanse of her backside, in black block letters were the words: Love Pinky.

I'm glad I am too old to have a clue about this.

I don't think it's a matter of age, Janet!

Did you also spot the ubiquitous "tat" placed in the middle of the very low end of the back, just above the obligatory thong indicator? I vaguely remember peer pressure of my time, and I am happy that in those days we were not stylistically driven to tattoos and self-exposure. As a middle aged man with no children, I cannot imagine what parents must feel when their children try so hard to exude their sexuality.

No tattoo, at least not that I saw, distracted as I was by the lime green and Love Pinky.

I, too, am glad that I did not grow up with the peer pressures for tattoos and self-exposure.

I started that on my own once I was an adult, just because I really liked it!

FWIW, I've heard those tattoos referred to as 'tramp stamps.'
