I’ve just got back in from town after having my second tattoo. It’s deeply personal to me.

My new Tattoo
My new Tattoo

It’s a quote from my all time favourite film, True Romance. Not as soppy as it sounds. I’m expecting only people of a certain age to have even heard of it…given that I’m quite old. Not only that but it’s the title of the music I walked down the aisle to (the theme from the film) when I got married (And actually so did the lovely Love Audrey), and of course there are three people in my life that I think are especially cool, my husband and my two children, Chloe and Lola. They are my life. Ok, that is soppy.

Anyway, here’s my absolutely favourite quote from the film.

“Amid the chaos of that day, when all I could hear was the thunder of gunshots, and all I could smell was the violence in the air, I look back and am amazed that my thoughts were so clear and true, that three words went through my mind endlessly, repeating themselves like a broken record: you’re so cool, you’re so cool, you’re so cool. And sometimes Clarence asks me what I would have done if he had died, if that bullet had been two inches more to the left. To this, I always smile, as if I’m not going to satisfy him with a response. But I always do. I tell him of how I would want to die, but that the anguish and the want of death would fade like the stars at dawn, and that things would be much as they are now. Perhaps. Except maybe I wouldn’t have named our son Elvis.”

    Oh! I think I am having a hormone rush to the brain – just listened to the theme music from the film, sat here in tears, god knows why have never even seen the film! Beautiful piece of music and I am definitely going to watch this film on your recommendation! xx

    I have such a low tolerance for pain I could never get a tattoo. I’m glad you’re happy with yours, though!

    Never saw the film and I believe we’re in the same age group, although I’m not old 😉

    I’m 21 and true romance is one of my favourite films ever. I’m not ashamed to admit that my ring tone is ‘Your So Cool’ 🙂
