It had to happen eventually

You know how I know I'm officially a grown up? I can think of no context in which I would be willing to wear my "smoke crack and worship satan" t-shirt out of the house anymore. I don't think I have in at least 8 years. I'm just worried I'll seriously offend someone. I used to not care if they didn't get the joke, but now it seems unkind somehow. I seem to have lost the desire to freak the mundanes. I want to make them tea instead. Maybe a nice pan of brownies.

I think this is a good thing, but it does make me a little wistful sometimes.

I still have and wear mine. At this point though it doesn't get worn 'just around town'; mostly because its getting holes in it and wearing out. The other down side to wearing some of the more 'offensive' type shirts in the current law enforcement/public hysteria environment is risky. In an age when anything can get you a charge of making terroristic threats or detained without reason if someone doesn't like the way you look, its just no worth it. Since I live in Kansas now I take what ever stab I think I can get away with. But since I stand out anyway I put more thought into it now. So yeah age must have something to do with it.

I doubt you'd want to wear this then even though the recent Virginia election results need this as a reply--

Hah! Oh, that's beautiful! Yeah, I probably wouldn't wear it, but only because I'm afraid some folks would be too dumb to get the sarcasm, and might take the reverse meaning from it.

I certainly would, except don't you think some people would be too dense to get the sarcasm? I'd hate for anyone to think I meant that I *wanted* it that way!

Funny story. I was with Red Steve at the Leather Rack once, and he was wearing a t-shirt on the topic of homophobia. Apparently, his jacket was covering some of the text, and one of the partons was grumbling about it, because all he could see was "there's nothing wrong with homophobia." The guy behind the counter, who knew us and had seen the shirt before said "read the fine print, sweetie." Steve turned to the guy and opened his jacket so the he could see the rest of the message: "...that a good fist up the ass won't cure."

Hee! :)

Very few 'get' that shirt on a good day.

Yeah, too many people are overly sensitive or just to stupid to get sarcasm anymore. Thats why out here I'm trying so damn hard to stay low profile lest I be burned at the stake.

oh, probably, but it'd be worth it just for the few who'd get it, and I'd have fun at the expense of those who didn't and actually said something to me.
