(I should probably credit soapy with finding the Grace Denton piece back in the day. Credit to soapy)
I got drunk once and shouted to her that I like her band and she should do more shouting
buy their EP im putting out you fuckers (not marckee)
but saw a bit where her son's quoted as saying I'm an adult...
"take a break" magazine
inked like a pig carcass.
"Tess Morgan is a pseudonym"
although she wouldn't go quite so OTT, this woman sounds genuinely nuts. She can only associate tattoos with criminals and nothing else, she would also be concerned about job interviews etc. Same goes for shaved heads and three day stubble.
I think this tattoo just represents her child growing up. Perhaps he got it partly as a marker of his independence from her also. I don't know why she was crying for three days for fucks sake, she didn't even look at it, nor could she see it!
years time look at themselves and think "why the fuck did I do that" idiots.
I saw someone on a dickhead sun, sea, suspicious parents type show get a massive "I love Magaluf 2013" tattoo right up his neck. At the time he loved it, people were calling him a "Magaluf legend". He will really, really fucking regret that.
Ones on upper arms where you can't see them, meh. People may regret them but at least over the age of 30 you barely ever get them out unless you are swimming or at the beach anyway.
gits at the best of times, as I vaguely remember from being one. I can imagine a situation where I'm trying to talk my kids out of having them until they've really thought about it. And neck / hand / face tattoo's mostly look dreadful agreed.
"I will never look at you in the same way again"
"You couldn't have done anything to hurt me more"
this woman is a dick and the article is fucking hilarious. Imagine feeling like that. Imagine.
I know my mum would be pretty upset if I'd ever got a tattoo. I think, also, it's a weird inner monologue of thoughts, like the sort of thoughts that come to you for half a second and then dismiss but she wrote them down, which is definitely pretty odd.
but she wouldn't write a bloody Guardian article about it making it loads more ridiculous.
She wasn't all that impressed. I'm 29 so there is nothing she can say, so she didn't. My Dad just asked how much it was (it was free).
And probably when he started travelling to school on his own too.
"YOU'VE ABANDONED ME!"
there's no way this is real
when I tell them about mine...
He's her baby. She knows it's irrational but she's also very self-analytical so all those preposterous thoughts she had are just her successfully articulating her prejudices and it's her ability to so so that allows her to realise she's being unreasonable.
There's enough parents who would just react to whatever generational challenge is thrown at them like this- be it finding out her son's gay, a father-to-be, or doesn't want to take over the family butchers. Yeah, this reads like self-obsessive naval-gazing- but this is her internal monologue- of course it does.
Your reaction to things your children do isn't always strictly rational, but it doesn't get much more emotional than the way you think about your children. If my children got tattoos I wouldn't bat an eyelid but I'm only 20 years older than them and have always hung in circles where that stuff isn't unusual, but if you're say 30-40 years older and from a different world then it can be a bit harder.
her job is done, he's his own man and that is a psychological challenge for almost any parent
she should have just moaned to the checkout lady at Waitrose instead
who are equally as enthralled by your opinions on Elliott Smith
mothers having trouble with empty-nesting are hardly a niche minority.
I just have nothing to do at work today and the person i normally spend emailing is off.
I might go for a nap in the toilet
if I did have an opinion on Elliot Smith, which I don't, then it would be categorized under the legitimate field of music journalism. Whereas this neurotic nonsense has no place but inside this lady's 'well mental' head
I'll tell you what. I'll organise a fight to the death.
You can fight with the music journalism fans
I'll fight with the fans of 'family' journalism
We'll see who is left standing.
while my side would clearly win, I'd be a bit bored with the post-fight conversation.
hand cut 'rustic' chips and artisanal sandwiches?
My mum has done plenty of this. Not about tattoos (she has some) or anything I've done in general. Just that she opines for times gone rather more than I think is beneficial to our relationship. It's mostly sweet rather than destructive, though.
she has made it very clear in the past how much she despises tattoos. So perhaps part of her grievance is how little thought he seemed to have put into it or how she may feel when he told her.
Still doesn't justify how much of a moan she is having or writing an article about it of course.
inside a heart that has been made to resemble a phallus
Mother gets empty nest syndrome. 21-year-old still self-obsessed narcissist with no empathy. End of non-story.
But the main reason I have no sympathy for her is that she doesn't know what the singular of biceps is. What a terrible role model she is, no wonder her son is a git.
it's quite a doozy!
and it would be ironic because the mum would be both upset at the tattoo itself, but hopefully touched by the sentiment!
