OK...So I was at the store today and I saw this girl who was wearing a t-shirt I liked. It was made of a thin material and had green lettering on the white fabric. It said, "Green is good." I like that. Green is good...green is good. Yes...green is good. And since I am becoming more and more interested in living green, I just had to comment on her shirt.
"I like your shirt." I said.
"Thanks." She said a bit bewildered as I am apparently old in her eyes.
"Where'd you get it?" I asked.
"At Macy's." She said trying to figure out how to get away from said-old person.
"Really?" I said. "So are you an environmentalist?"
"Uh." She said.
"An environmentalist." I said. "You know, are you into saving the environment and stuff (trying to throw in a teenish-term) like that."
"Uh." She said. "I don't think so."
And that was the end of our not-so-intelligent conversation.
I don't think so? I don't think so. How do you answer a question like that with, I don't think so? Oh brother.
So here's my advice. Fashion is fashion but if you have printed words displayed across your being, you'd better be sure you know what they mean. This girl was proudly saying something to the world but didn't have a clue what it was.
What if I went around with t-shirt that said, "tax accountant"? Wouldn't you expect that I would get people asking me tax questions all the time? Of course you would. Sheesh.
And that's my rant for the day.
So what t-shirt would you proudly and honestly wear? Writer? Encourager? Keeper of Secrets?
