My Tattoo

At work, at the end of every single conversation, I find myself saying “Thanks, sorry.” It might be useful to have that as a tattoo. I’ve even considered having “Thanks!” on the knuckles of one hand, and “Sorry…” on the other, like Robert Mitchum in Night of the Hunter. (I’d use the spaces between the knuckles, too.) Then I could say, y’know, whatever: “Can you make the client revisions by 2:00 o’clock?” and then just present each fist, left, right.

I'm a principal at Young & Laramore Advertising. I'm a columnist for McSweeney's. (A guy at The New Yorker said this about it: I'm a Dad of 3 and Husband of 1. I'm a coffee drinker. I'm a good driver. I'm a pet owner. I'm a blogger. I'm a guy looking at things on the internet. Sometimes the order of importance of these things changes around.
