Tee's I wear to tease

Getting into the whole t-shirt craze thing is kinda tempting for me, and sometimes I dable. I have a fraggle rock t-shirt. I have a tiny Phillies t-shirt. In high school I was one of the first girls in my class to wear my little sister’s dorky cartoon tee’s. I had a great Yankees tee until the Greggster made me give it up (okay, he didn’t make me but the roomie was dating a huge Yanks fan and it made Greggster vomit and holler so it worked out rather well). I recently bought a t-shirt from www.retroduck.com that says: “Don’t Mess with Delaware.” That was a must have.
But I get online or I try to be trendy and shop at urban outfitters, and all I see is slogan t-shirts- old Star Wars graphics, “Jesus is my Homeboy”, robots, CBGB, rainbows, trucks, anything eighties or seventies or sixties……
Where does it end? And where can I wear these shirts? To work? No. To the gym? No way, I feel dorky. To sleep? Yes, but then I feel silly for wearing a 30 dollar shirt to bed. To a bar? No sir, not in DC.
Although one time the Roomie and I conducted a little experiment. We went out to a bar in Arlington, and wore t-shirts- mine read “Wish You Were Here”, and I believe hers was a cubs t-shirt. We got so many lines, so many hits, so many men wanting to buy us drinks. I think the shirts served as a conversation starter…I got, “Hey! You like Pink Floyd?” and, “Oh, I most certainly DO wish I was there.” And, “isn’t that an Incubus song?” That’s how you can tell the range of the age of the men that hit on me- Pink Floyd to Incubus.
I think the roomie even got, “I have never dated someone as beautiful as you before,” as if they were dating…..weirdo…
Of course none of those pickup lines can beat the most horrible line ever…

Jerkoff: When was the last time you got a haircut?
Me: A few months ago?
Jerkoff: Oh, so you’re in that growing out phase right now…..
Me: ………

Just take a minute and think about that……..
Where was I? T-shirts. They are funny. Apparently they have clubs and blogs and people that are waaaaaay too into their collections. A word to the single females out there- wear them to bars. If not to start conversation and meet a nice man, to conduct experiments like my roomie and I.

I really like tees. There was this really cool store in Philly where all the tee shirts were color coordinated and you could find anything. The shirts I love are the ones that are totally random. One said "Sam" on the front. that was it. Sam. Probably some band. Of course I ended up gettng a ghetto version of "make 7 up yours" and my mom wouldn't let me wear it to the bank. kb
