I've passed the point of no return. Lailani has already told her husband that it's going to happen and we've already planned our whole term project on it. So, I might as well tell everyone, 'cause I ain't backing out now.
It all started when Gibb, Lailani and I were talking about what we wanted to do for our term project in our Instruction Design class. We thought of this, that and the other thing (I really can't remember what they were) when I made my first mistake. "No, I don't want to do something mundane, ordinary. Let's do something different." We discussed a couple other things that were still too mundane for me, when Lailani (whose husband grew up in Tonga) said that her husband does traditional Tongan tattooing. here cometh mistake number 2 Which is when I mentioned that I'd been thinking about getting the Pi symbol tattooed on my arm for a while now. The ball was rolling at this point, pushed along by the mention of a traditional Tongan drink (alcohol that is) that preceeds the tattoo. They knew to mention the drink before mentioning that the ink is set in the skin by poking me with a sharpened shark tooth a bazillion times. I was still focused on the drink, and how cool it would (will) be to have a tattoo done in a traditional tribal manner. Anyway, I'm gonna do it. And we're going to take a ton of pictures of it for our project, which you'll all get to see - unless I wimp out at the last minute.
