Art...

... wandering the streets of my small town today blissfully active in husbandly duties, I noticed a strange vibe from everyone who came near to me.... sure, most of the housewives know me down at the local Ingles grocery now... we're all on the same sheet... them in their flowery day-frocks and me in my tee-shirt and jeans.... we've bonded... Hell, I even occasionally share a joke and a laugh with the cashiers from time to time as they ring up my daily purchases... I've been ˜just one of the crowd' since day one....

... but today as I rounded aisle after aisle in search of bacon, apple tarts, ale, and potato chips... greeting a fellow shopper with a smile and a fare-thee-well, I was shocked to see them cast their eyes downward and scurry past with their trolleys... by aisle number three, I could have sworn that Velociman's Mutant must have been secretly peeping over my shoulder as I greeted each pony-tailed soccer mom....

... but then it dawned on me.... instead of being decked-out in my normal white cotton, inoffensive, Banana Republic tee, I was wearing my black Roy Troll artistic shirt...

... wow... I'm gonna have to start being more careful out in public... I don't think those shoppers have the same sense of humor that I do...

Bullshit So Far

Soccer moms. No sense of adventure.

That is funny, I think the shirt may go over better next time if you "soften" your appearance, save that shirt for trips to the post office and dmv.

I took one look at the design and just laughed. Now those soccermoms will have this mental image of you in their feeble minds for ever. lol

As a soccer mom, I can only give it the thumb's up, but then, I'm the soccer mom who's taking my daughter and a friend to see Reel Big Fish next weekend, so perhaps I'm not normal in the soccer mom realm.
