Evidently, I Look Like a Girl Who Loves Henna Tattoos

This morning at Starbucks, the man behind me in line asked what my tattoo says.
I told him, "Hosanna."
His response: "Oh, so it's going to come off?"
I said, "No, it's real. It's on there."
Then the guy behind the counter said, "Hosanna...what does that mean? We say that in church."
So I explained it to them.
The Starbucks employee nodded and the man behind me said, "Oh. I'll have a large coffee."

Clearly this man knows nothing about tattoos, Hebrew, etiquette, or ordering at Starbucks.

I guess "Hosanna" kinda sounds like "Henna" most adult men for sure.

And, I ALWAYS order coffee that way at Starbucks ("I'll have a large coffee")
It makes me feel rebellious! :)

At least he's asking questions, which is more than you can expect from most of the ignorant of the world.

BTW, henna is a part of the heritage and culture of a lot of people too, and it is "real" just not permanent.
