“You could ask the question, did I want to get Charles Ramsey tattooed on my leg, and the obvious answer is no. The real question is, was I willing to get Charles Ramsey tattooed on my leg, and the answer was yes…In society, a lot of times people choose not to get involved in situations. I think what’s really grabbed people in regards to Mr. Ramsey, is he’s an average, everyday guy. He’s an ordinary person, he was put in an extraordinary situation that he could have walked away from. But he chose to do something.”
Look, I’m all for showering the guy with love, but a Ramsey tattoo might be a bit much. But hey, to each his own. And #YOLO.
In other Charles Ramsey news, the Washington Post did a story on his trip to Washington over the weekend, and — in addition to being filled with a slew of delightful Ramseyisms, concluded with this little nugget that made me like him even more…
A few minutes earlier, on the way out of the restaurant, his entourage rose from the table and walked away. No one looked back to see Ramsey still seated, busily gathering the plates and silverware, stacking them for the waiters. Then Ramsey ducked under the table. A couple of forks had fallen, and someone had to retrieve them.
Love that man. Just not enough to get his face tattooed on my leg, that’s all.
