Picking up kids from preschool

21 posts in this topic

So last week I had a bunch of meetings and one ran late. Since uncle @Lochlan was at the house already I asked if he could pick up our 2 boys from pre-school.

Then I called the school to give them a heads up that the random totally tattooed guy was not trying to kidnap my kids. I tell the supervisor who is very sweet but a little goofy that:

Uncle loch was going to pick up the boys. He is a handsome guy covered in tattoos.

She says no problem and Loch picks up the kids.

Today at drop-off one of the teachers came up to me and said:

Remember the day the boys got picked up by their uncle....the supervisor came in and told us to expect "a handsome guy in tap-shoes" and I was listening for tap shoes

This post got me in trouble at work! I was reading it in a meeting and ended up laughing really loud.

I ended up picturing lochlan merrily tap dancing into the pre-school.

I second this. This story is GOLD. My question is though, even if @Lochlan was into tap dancing, why would he wear his shoes to pick up the kids?

Actually... after thinking about it for a second if Uncle Loch was into tap dancing, then why wouldn't he wear the tap shoes to pick the kids up ;) Either way, this is awesome.

Can we get him a pair of tap shoes for the next time he has to grab the kids from school?

haha, no wonder I was getting weird stares. Now I know to wear my tap shoes into the school and not my running shoes. I can tap my way down the hall to their classrooms then tap may way back out as the boys breakdance beside me.

Can this happen? That would be one epic. All the other kids would be jealous! q

This was so hilarious to me that I had to actually read and submit acceptance of posting guidelines for my first post...to say that I have had some great laughs from this post!

    • We do have this thread for art, though. To get an apprenticeship, you need to continue to build your art skills and create relationships with local shops and tattooers...a forum isn't really the way to go.
    • i think you have a lot of great subject matter there that can become a great tattoo.  let us know where you are located and/or if you are willing to travel and we can make some artist recommendations.  i am imagining so many different tattooers using your design as a starting point and making some really great pieces.
    • hey @Kracov welcome to the forum Everybody wants a unique tattoo. But the strongest and most powerful tattoos are ones that takeoff of classic imagery and timeless themes. Tattoo design is more than the drawing/image - placement, scale, composition, simplicity, black and contrast are very important in making not just a good tattoo but a unique tattoo. Your design - it's waaay too busy. A strong tattoo you can tell what it is from across the street. All the smaller items around the perimeter - the spikey eyeball, moon-spider-web, pictographs/icons, latin writing, asian/tribal markings - those all take away from the main idea but could work as one shot tattoos on other parts of the body like the arms. Maybe that would be a good starting point for you to get experience. Then you can go bolder and bigger with your battle-axe-predator-sword-demon-IDK idea. I'm not sure what exactly you're going for. Really a consultation with a tattooer is a first step to making any tattoo a reality. But you need to be able to answer this question: "what exactly do you want on your back" with the simplest, no-bs, get-to-the point answer. Suggest you cruise the LST forum threads, gallery and check out the tattooer interviews to gain some insight into what makes a good tattoo. cheers
