pinkin’ the ’80s



I love boxy shirts.  The kind that don’t have the fitted feminine shape to them, but are in a big boxy square shape.  Doubles as a parachute, I figure.

Basically, they’re excellent Ultra-Comfy Wear.  Makes me feel like I’m wearing jammies all day.


One day in LA, I had found me a gray-colored boxy-shaped T-shirt for sale.  And as an additional bonus, it even had bright pink-colored wording on it.  Bein’ a lover of the color pink, this shirt has been one of my go-to ones for the past several years.

So I was surprised when the sis had made a comment to me about it one day.

the sis:  “What made you buy that shirt?”

me:  “Huh?  This shirt?  Why?”

the sis:  “Geez… That shirt looks so…eighties.”


I looked down at it.  There was just one paint stain on the side of it.  But the rest of it was ship-shape, lookin’ almost like I had bought it just yesterday.

me:  “I got it cuz it’s pink.”

the sis:  “The style shows your age, you know.  Looks like you should be wearing a sweat band on your forehead too.”

me:  “Humph.  I don’t care.  I love this shirt.  Stop dissin’ it, yo.”

the sis:  “Whatever Wham.”
