Just an EXAMPLE.
Not the real thing — i.e., THE surgeon.
Don’t get TOO excited. No, no … I do NOT need any surgery at present, as far as I know. This was NOT for I.
Yes, I know I am strange. I have never shied away from that.
If this surgery was for I, there would be no question. I would have got up walked out and while doing so told the surgeon, in no uncertain terms, that I was not amused that HE wasted my time.
I already told you that I am strange … right.
One of my many foibles is a rabid aversion to any form of body mutilation and alteration.
Other than cutting my hair and nails, I refuse to have any other — medically unnecessary — alterations done to my body. Yes, I had to have some teeth extracted and I only consented under pain and duress.
I, despite my cultural upbringing, am against ear piercing! My adoptive mother, 29-years ago, was aghast that I would not have my newly born daughter’s ears pierced. She had arrived with a pair of gold earrings. I told her that I did NOT have the right to mutilate my daughter.
As all three of my daughters will tell you, in a mixture of glee and dismay, I have NEVER consented to them getting their ears pierced.
To say that I am against circumcision is an understatement. I think that any parent who gets their child circumcised is a CHILD ABUSER and I will tell that to their face — and I have told so to many a parent!
So, suffice to say, I am not a fan of tattooing!
Yes, my wife has one, but it is small, it is on her ankle and it is of the Sun. I don’t have to see it often. She had it done before we met. Yes, I made an exception. But, I will NOT let her perform any surgery on I, either.
To, I it all has to do with the state of one’s mind.
I am fine with the way my body is. My body is a mess and can be greatly enhanced and embellished BUT I will not resort to that. I am happy to live with what I got.
A surgeon with EXTENSIVE tattoos looks unprofessional!
I question is judgement and IF I meet him again I will ask him that to his face.
I already asked him a couple of questions he did NOT appreciate and he decided to get in MY FACE to respond. What he did not realize that folks like him scare me none.
So, that is my view. I would NOT TRUST a professional with extensive tattoos. Period.
Call me strange. That I am.
But, I have my standards and I live by them.
