T-Shirt by Michael Kimball

31 Oct

I stumbled upon this story over at BLIP today, a day where I wear my normal clothes instead of the assumed Halloween costume, a day where I’m finally washing four laundry baskets of shirts, pants, towels that I’ve neglected for three weeks, a day when I’m recovering from a weekend of trying to get comfortable and warm with my closest friends.

This story goes beyond being simple and clever, to really matter, to put this metaphor to work. I’m relating to it right now: I’m a guy, but I guess too I am a t-shirt of sorts. I’m just in love with the way this story strikingly matters.

Here is a neat excerpt:

For its whole life, T-Shirt has liked get ting pulled on and pulled off. T-Shirt likes get ting dirty and get ting thrown in with the other dirty clothes. T-shirt likes get ting thrown into the wash and get ting all wet and twisted up with the other wet clothes. T-Shirt likes how hot it gets tum bling in the dryer and how clean it feels in the laun dry bas ket after that.

Here are some links for other things I like at BLIP. Good work there:
