The Curse of the Shade Shirt

Shade shirts are awesome. They are great for layering and make everything modest, thereby exponentially expanding your wardrobe. See-through shirt? Wear a Shade shirt! Too low-cut? Wear a Shade shirt! Doesn't have any sleeves? Wear a Shade shirt!
Sounds great, right? So what's the curse, you ask. It is impossible to keep my white Shade shirt stainless. I wash it on Saturday; stain it on Sunday. I get a new one for Christmas; stain it as soon as I get home. My best friend, Sarah, learns of my plight and generously sends me another one; it gets lost in the mail. Argh!
Then, I find out that Shade is going out of business and having a liquidation sale. Perfect! I can stock up on cheap shirts and hopefully beat that darn curse. Oh no, those shirts are still $14! The company is going out of business, and their idea of a "sale" is to take $3 off of the price! I am obviouisly doomed to stained Shade shirts for all eternity, or until I go buy a similar shirt from H&M.

All for a Trophy of a Horse's Hiney

Yesterday, Spencer and I played a Dr. Mario tournament with some friends, and I was by far the WORST. Walking home, I told Spencer that I wanted to acquire said game. Not because I actually enjoyed Dr. Mario (which I did), but because I never wanted to be the loser again. Being the good husband he is, Spencer got on the internet first thing this morning and bought Dr. Mario for our N64. You can guess what I will be doing once it arrives.
Watch out, Barons!
