Tattoos and High Heels


In Toronto Saturday night, outside the hotel, we witnessed an amusing sight. One group of folks milled about from the tattoo convention in their designer skin. Another group waited to get on the bus in their designer clothes. Stranger than any book on the bookshelf. Some of the women would be pickled Mary by the end of the evening, and I don’t mean the ones with body art. No identity crisis for the man with shoes to match his lavender shirt. I thought it a sign of the times for two such diverse groups to be gathered in one place.

    I’ve always thought people with multiple tattoos had an identity crisis.

    Some places, in the right place, at the most opportune time, it pays to be a tourist.
    This was a fascinating account, Sue.
