We have this event in our town every Saturday night during the summer. Traffic is blocked off in our downtown area, and live music is performed on various street corners. People can plop their lawn chair in the street, listen to music and visit with friends. There are also some street vendors there. One vendor sells henna tattoos, the kind that lasts for a couple of weeks and fade away.
While I was goofing around downtown Saturday night I watched a father who was obviously watching his little girl while mom was elsewhere that evening. He was absent mindedly keeping tabs on her while he chatted with an acquaintance. She ran up to him, asked to get a tattoo, and he said, "Sure." I don't think he had any idea what she was asking. She smiled brightly, handed the woman her money and picked out a large butterfly design for the top of her hand. I watched the artist do her thing, and all I could think was, "Boy, is he going to be in trouble when they get home."
