I tell my kids on a regular basis that people are more important than things. I tell them this, because I believe it is true. Like most true...

The Most Wonderful Thing About Tiggers
Fits me to a T.
My Life in T-Shirts
When I was in college, my sister bought me a real cool Tigger shirt. I won't describe the front as you should be looking right at it. But the back had the Tigger song printed on the back: You know the one . . .
The Wonderful Thing about Tiggers
Is Tiggers are wonderful Things
Their Tops are made out of Rubber
Their Bottoms are made out of Springs
They're Bouncy, Trouncy, Flouncy, Pouncy Fun Fun Fun Fun Fun!
But the most wonderful thing about Tiggers is, I'm the only one.
It continues (although I'm not sure it continues on the shirt)
Tiggers are wonderful fellas
Tiggers are awfully sweet
Everyone ellis is jealous! That's why I repeat repeat
I loved that shirt. That shirt got through college, made it through 2 years in Russia. There's a picture of me wearing it in my yearbook from seminary. My wife wore it on a missions trip to Turkey in 2000. Sometime after that it came up missing. It had a long and storied life so I didn't grieve too much for it, but I sure do miss it. It would have made quite the adult t-shirt turned kid's pajamas.
This post is one in a series of remembrances of t-shirts past. Some people may wonder why I'm so nostalgic about t-shirts. The truth is, I'm nostalgic about everything. I'm nostalgic about the future. Here is a quick ditty I just composed to the Tigger tune that may explain my love for t-shirts.
The most wonderful thing about t-shirts
Is t-shirts are quite fun to wear
They're great to roll up your sleeves in
They help you let down your hair
They're cool, they're stylish, some think they're childish and while I will not bicker
the most wonderful thing about t-shirts is they're frontwards bumper stickers!
Well that's it for me for today. I like t-shirts. I'm sure I'm not the only one.
Head on over to Half Past Kissin' time for more fragmented Friday fun.
