The gals in my department and I are taking the day to do a little “team building” tomorrow! We’ll meet for brunch, and then head off to the Indian bazaar for henna tattoos, and then see if we’re up for a movie.
Oh, you don’t think that qualifies as team building? Well, then you weren’t there last time when three out of the four of us discovered that we could not get ourselves home with freshly hennaed hands!!!
Claire, who had the sense to have her feet done, had to dig through each of our purses, scrounge for money to pay the artist, find our car keys, help us into our cars, and then pray that we all made it home safely. It was the most gracefully coordinated rescue mission I’d witnessed in a long time.
This time, I think I will not do my hands. For one, it’s inconvenient for the first day or so as the dried bits of henna flake off to reveal the design underneath. For another, it has a very strong odor, one we all oohed and ahhed over at first, but by morning I was ready to chop my hands off, and by day three I had vowed never to do henna again.
So. I need your help deciding where to put tomorrow’s design! Shall I do my feet this time, and have lovely vines and flowers entwining my ankles for the next few weeks of summer? Or shall I have a design drawn on my lower back, or belly, or shoulders?
Go ahead and leave a comment, and I will tot up the votes in the morning and go with whatever the majority chooses! And yes, as a matter of fact, I will post pictures.
