Should I Blame the Shirt? · Jul 5, 08:18 AM
Travelling at 65 mph I am distracted by something on my white shirt sitting casually atop my belly. I brush at it to no avail. I am concentrating on the road before me so it is in essence just a blur that will not leave my sight. Finally coming up on stop and go traffic I see that it is two hairs. Well this makes perfect sense as I was trimming my goatee barely thirty minutes earlier (of course I didn’t have a shirt on then – hmmm….) As I pluck at the pesky little suckers to send them off to the side and away from my open soda they decide to put up a fight and don’t budge one iota.
I am sure we have all had a hair lodge itself in the thread of a shirt and I did not give it another thought until I pulled a little harder only to realize that these hairs are attached to my belly proper!
It couldn’t possibly be that I am so hairy as to be bursting through my clothing (could it? Could it???) Must be this cheap ass shirt… harumph.
