My wife who is not a witness ironed a t-shirt for me as we were about to go shopping my wife said will the shirt ok with you? I presumed she meant was her enquiry had to do with it being to casual.
I said yes I think that's ok anyway it only at the local shopping centre and I dutifully put it on and of we went. As it turned out it seemed that there were so many brothers at the shopping centre you could be excused for thinking it was a convention. I heartily said hello to the brothers & sisters and noticed after a while some of them gave me an odd look.
I remembered back when my wife quizzed me about the shirt if it was ok with me? Now I thought perhaps it was a little too casual. I little later on another brother passed me by and said to me Wish me a Merry Christmas. I said to him why on earth would I say that?
The brother said 'well that's what written on your shirt'. I said your kidding as I looked down frantically. Happily, the brother saved my bacon by taking me to a clothes shop where he bought me a new more suitable shirt. This brother who is known as a bit of a joker told me the gift was not to be thought of as a Christmas present.
A lot of my t-shirts have motives on them so I hadn't looked down to see what was on it. The rest of the morning was spent looking for all the brother & sisters I saw before and wouldn't you know it not a one could be found. The next meeting was me telling those I had seen shopping and telling them something like this, 'you know when I saw you at the shops the other day well a funny thing happened……………. and so on.
Actually, I didn't need to the brother who I mentioned who is a bit of a joker passed it on. All of this happened some time ago but every time Christmas comes around you can be sure I always check my shirt with a little cringe.
Your bro. Vic
