I never could figure out how people could use just 140 characters to express themselves. I tend to run on and on and on…well, if you ever read stuff I write you know that. But one thing I found I really enjoyed was captions. I love doing photograph albums and writing the captions. Preparing family photo calendars for Christmas is one long giggle fest for me. Then a few years ago I got cancer, a type with a very low survival rate. Being the optimist I am, I decided the day of my diagnosis that the day they declared me cancer free I would get myself a teeshirt that declared “Grim Reaper Reject”. I did, too. Then one day I was driving with my sister past our favorite meat palace and got a face full of fragrant hickory smoke. My sister sighed happily and remarked, “Man, if there’s no barbeque in Heaven, I’m coming back!”
Yesterday I was on the Teespring website reopening the teeshirt sales for those two sayings and my brain started cranking. We have a Christmas sign on our front door we haven’t changed out yet that has annoyed me from day one. “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” it says. It annoyed me because it seemed to say that was the ONLY season He was there for. Jesus is the reason for EVERY season! Huh, I thought. That sounds like a teeshirt. So now it is.
While I was doing that, my mind wandered back to a conversation I had about friendliness. I have a running joke that I use to describe myself. I call myself a social slut because I’ll talk to almost anybody. Hey, I wonder… Yup. Another teeshirt.
Unfortunately, these are not open for long. If you’d like one, check them out quick. I may, if things work out, wind up getting an inventory of several sizes and sell them myself. But you don’t have to wait if you don’t want to. These shirts go up to 5X.
The place to look for them is http://teespring.com/stores/words-are-my-life. I’ll probably be putting more up there as they come to me. Sometimes they smack me in the face and sometimes they slip in when I’m not looking. I hope they amuse, inspire, and just sometimes make you think.
