Mostly Wordless Wednesday ~ "I Wish I Knew How To Quit You"

Yes, just like those Brokeback Mountain boys, I wish I knew how to quit Tori Amos. Well, really my Tori Amos T-shirt. I got this baby on Ebay a few years back. It was a great price and now it's my favorite tee. The t-shirt is from Tori's Strange Little Girls tour. I love it and wear it all the time, probably to Tom's horror. He doesn't complain though because he wears and old Costa Rica Imperial Beer t-shirt that is just as bad.

I am sure the mailman was horrified the other day when I opened the door wearing my precious baby. When I reached for the box he was handing me I am sure he saw the holes underneath the arms, the bleach stains and tiny holes in the front. I know he did. I saw it in his eyes the next day. He was judging me for wearing my worn t-shirt. Why did he have to be so hurtful? So hateful?

But I don't care. I won't be judged, damn it! No amount of bleach stains, frayed edges or holes can ever make me quit her. I won't do it. I can't do it. She is beautiful to me.

But, alas, the holes are getting bigger and it's fading fast. But I just can't do it. Don't make me do. Don't judge me for loving it. Oh the humanity.

p.s. It actually looks better in person. The picture is making it look worse. ;0)

  3. Carolyn,

    You shouldn't be ashamed and don't let go! I too am stuck in the '80's but D-Mode is what does it for me. The only difference is that I buy the T-shirts, but don't want to wear them because I don't want them to end up looking like your Tori T-shirt. I've got quite a few concert shirts that haven't seen the light of day. I look at them every once in a while. Can you get another one? If not, then I guess you better pull out a needle and thread and grab a few fabric scraps.

    Thank you for visiting my blog!
