Sometimes, the best way to get something off your chest is to put it on your chest.
Imprinted T-shirts can say things you’d never have the nerve to utter yourself. They can give others a glimpse of who you really are — or who you’d like them to believe you are. You can express yourself by doing nothing more than getting dressed. How simple is that?
For me, T-shirts are like one-liners emblazoned on 100 percent cotton. And, I don’t even have to practice my delivery before unleashing the clever (or maybe not so clever) zingers to the world. Here are some of my favorites:
For the writer in me
- I prefer my puns intended.
- Theyr’re. Problem solved.
- Careful or you’ll end up in my novel.
Thinking about songs from the ’70s
- “Thunderbolts and lightning. Very, very frightening me.” — Galileo
- Surely not everybody was kung fu fighting?
- I sometimes wonder what happened to people who have asked me for directions.
- What if the Hokey Pokey is really what it’s all about?
- Never trust an atom. They make up everything.
- If you see me talking to myself, I’m just getting expert advice.
