As always, they did not disappoint, but it was Kelly’s story that truly took the cake.
“I have parents who are in their 80s, and we grew up in a very traditional household where you were never allowed to come home with a tattoo or you’d be disowned,” Kelly explained.
However, it was the night before Kelly’s mother’s 80th birthday that she noticed something different about her 84-year-old husband – he was wearing a T-shirt to bed, which he never did.
“Do you want your present now?” Kelly’s father responded before proceeding to take off his shirt.
“He took his t-shirt off… and had a tattoo on his shoulder of a little bee that said ‘Buzz’ underneath it,” Kelly said before explaining the adorable meaning behind her father’s new tatt.
“Since they’d been teenagers – because they had been married for sixty plus years – their nicknames were ‘Buzz’ and ‘Tiger’.”
Kelly’s mother wasn’t impressed, asking her husband: “How long is that gonna last?”
Think it couldn’t get any better than that? Think again!
“A week later, my mother went and got a tattoo of a tiger on her butt”.
Yes, you read that, Kelly’s 80-year-old conservative mother went on to get a tiger tattooed on her butt cheek!
Now that’s a good ‘surprise tattoo’ story!
