I've been wearing this shirt for about 7 years, since I was a camp counselor in college. I know it's not very flattering. It's an awful shade of yellow and is made to fit a (large) child. It eventually morphed into my painting shirt and bears the memories of many years of creativity. I use this shirt to open stubborn paint tubes, wipe off dirty paintbrushes and catch the mishaps that always happen when I have a paintbrush in my hand.
I'm not a careful painter and my mini-church buddies laugh at the paint they always see me sporting. They sometimes joke that I match my outfits to the paint that happens to be on my hands, arms, legs and yes, sometimes even in between my toes. So, it's essential to have a paint shirt to catch those paint flings.
But the thing is... my shirt is stinky. I haven't washed it I'm-not-going-to-tell-you-how-long because I don't want my paint stains to wash off! But I've come to realization that I don't want to be a stinky painter. So into the wash it goes tonight.
And I suppose I'll have to start collecting those multi-colored memories again.
Do you have paint shirt? Are you attached to it as I am to mine?
Happy weekend, you awesome people you. Soak up every drop!
PS. Do you like mustard & typpgraphy? Listed an Ampersand Cutie in the shop. :)
** You have probably heard of the earthquake disaster in Japan that occurred today. There is also a tsunami warning here in Hawaii. I'm evacuated to a friend's house on high ground and watching the news (at 4:30am and sooo sleepy). Chris is in port and is perfectly safe. Thanks to everyone for their concern and prayers! Please pray for Japan as they are facing major casualties, indescribable damage and devastation.**
