It's Saturday again, and I do love my Saturdays! Here's what I'm pondering today for Six Word Saturday...
What does your t-shirt slogan say?
My ex loved slogan t-shirts, and he had many. Some were clever, some related to his love of rock music and playing drums, others were obscene and I refused to go out with him when he wore them. Children, and adults with a sense of decency, don't need to be randomly exposed to that.
Standing in line at at the store this week, two t-shirts caught my eye. One, on a middle-aged, nondescript woman said "I understand I just don't care." Hmmm, not really very impressive. I am passionate about caring... to my way of thinking not caring is nothing to proclaim to the world with pride. Given, she could be referring to not caring about swirling drama or someone who feeds on attention, but the message I got was that she just didn't give a darn. Pretty sad.
The other was on a young man. It said "Don't let your fears be bigger than your faith." That's a good one! It tells me this guy has his head on straight and knows what's important. I would expect that if he believes what his shirt says, he'll be able to cope with what life throws his way.
I like t-shirts with a good message, I enjoy the humorous ones that make me smile, and I shake my head at those that seem like misguided statements, or are simply vulgar. It's interesting to see if the t-shirt slogan seems to fit the person wearing it, or if perhaps it might have been a loaner or a hand-me-down. Sometimes the t-shirt itself is a message, so undersized for it's occupant that one fears for the durability of seams!
Do you wear slogan t-shirts? If so, do you give thought to what message they convey? Does it reflect who you really are, or was it just in your favorite color? Is it a tribute to your favorite band, or a likeness of a familiar green leaf? Does it have something important to say?
If you could design the perfect slogan t-shirt that would tell us something about you, what would yours say?
