Baker's Tat

Thought I'd share a picture of my new baking tattoo. Got it last week. From now on, I'll never have to look for a whisk, there'll be one on my right forearm for good.

When you whisk upon a starter
Makes no difference flour or water
Anything your heart desires
Will bake for you

If your whisk is on your arm
It can't do you any harm
When you whisk upon a dough
As dreamers do

One of a kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a whisk out of the blue
Slaps and folds will see you through  
When you wish upon a whisk
Your bread come through

Move over Disney!  I'm a piano and guitar teacher and I teach the Jiminy Cricket version all of the time.  I wish I could have my students sing your version!

Wow!  I'm impressed!  You wrote that, right?  I googled around and couldn't find it... so you must have!

Now all you need is a dough whisk on the other arm and you'll be all set!

Thank you.  My son had just finished passing his exams to be a tattoo artist  (he's an excellent illustrator!)  and I was moved by the tattoo!    

I hope that whisk is working for you, Dan!

Mini Oven,

When you wrote:

"The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing"

followed by "slap and fold"

I must admit I did a little double take.

Sorry, couldn't resist!
