It’s Not All Mary Poppins


We found the Sharpie.

Well, Emily found the Sharpie. Probably about 4 full minutes before I found her finding it. She’s right-handed, you know, which explains the state of her left hand. And both her feet.

But that’s it! One black hand, two tattooed feet. Not clothing, not walls, not furniture nor even her face – or anyone else’s.

I’m thinking we all got off lightly.

Except perhaps Emily’s parents…

  1. Boy, did you get off lucky! I bet Emily had a VERY thorough bath that night. Did she still have traces of Sharpie on herself the next day?

  8. Ha! I hope they have a sense of humour…
    Not on the face, though, that alone should be enough for any parent to heave a sigh of relief. Let’s hope this doesn’t foreshadow a future of asking rock stars to sign her body with sharpies!

  9. It could have been much worse. I do hope they don’t scrub her raw. The stuff will wear off eventually.
