|First Line After Theme Ends|
|There's a phrase that has always scared the daylights out of me. . . |
Sheps opens talking about bodily adornments, such as ties and earrings, and other tribal markings.
Shep then tells the story of how he and Gasser were on a weekend pass in the Army and went to Long Branch, NJ. They spend the evening walking the boardwalk and ultimately find themselves in front of a tattoo parlor. They watch as a sailor has a sinking Lexington tattooed and Gasser asks how much various tattoos cost. They leave, but Gasser decides he wants to go back and gets a pair of Signal Corp flags. At 3 minutes to 11:00 Shep sits down in the chair to get a Mermaid tatooed on his arm with "Esther Jane Allberry - Eternally Yours" below it. When the artist says there is not enough time to do it tonight, come back tomorrow, Shep escapes being embarrassingly marked for life. |
