DEAREST DUDEMAN TEE SHIRTS /

dearest dudeman tee shirts

unfortunately, i have stained two of you already
with mysterious substances 
that i am guessing are watermelon

but, dearest dudeman tee shirts

fortunately, you cost next to nothing
and i can always get more of you
the next time i am at the walmart needing some milk
which is also when i pick up more yarn
almost without thinking about it
which is also why i own
mysteriously
more than four skeins 
of the same ugly off-white color 
that i thought was a good idea at the time
four times
a thought which has yet
to be proven
true
even
once

dearest dudeman tee shirts

you come in a bag, 
and you come taped together
and you peel the tape off
and i always wonder why
and you really only look best the day after a washing
but who is too lazy to prewash a shirt?
the kind of girl who is too lazy to buy shirts that do not come in plastic bags
to begin with
and that girl
would
be
me

-fin

Instant classic.

  2. You dress far, far better than 95% of the Idahoans I ever saw during my 8 years there. Cheers to your great style, Ardith

  3. 1. Adorable post. 2. Yesterday I thought to myself "Self, you should try just buying those multipacks of men's t-shirts" and this post has totally convinced me to do it next time I see some. So thank you for that.
