Call it a mid-life crisis, call it what you will, but I’m wanting to get a tattoo.

And being a geek, I’m going with a math theme.  I’ve narrowed the search down to three.

 Upper arm with my wife's name in the infinity symbol / mobius strip    

Upper arm with my wife’s name in the mobius strip             

Upper arm.

Third idea, just the numbers wrapped around the upper arm like the barbwire tats you see, maybe three spirals around.

Some people I’ve expressed this wish to have implied that as a role model for children getting a tat would be irresponsi ble.  I don’t know.

Choice 1, choice 2, choice 3, or skip it all together?

Opinions welcome.

I swear, I’d rather have a kid drop an f-bomb in my class than “that is soooooo gay.”  One of the precious little ones made the comment in class yesterday and I went Ms. H on their azz (for those not in the know, that would be the infamous ‘spider monkey’).  I went off on him, and the rest of them for a good two minutes.

When I finished the smart-ass in the back of the room says, “Jesus, Mr. W, we didn’t know you were gay.  Does your wife know?”

That set me off for another 5 minutes or so.

I’m not real sure how I kept my job…  but I’m pretty sure if one of them slips up and says it again they’re gonna run for the door before I twist their greasy heads off their scrawny necks.
