To a ‘T’

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?

Just wondering…

  • 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?

Parting thoughts

  • Never trust an atom. They make up everything.
  • If you see me talking to myself, I’m just getting expert advice.
