My Name's Bob. I'm a Tomato, and I'm here to help.
Fits Me to A T
My Life in T-shirts
Shortly after Amy and I got married, my sister in law gave us 2 t-shirts. Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber from veggie tales. For years we would mix and match the shirts and wear them out together.
A few years ago Larry went missing. So Bob became my shirt of choice. He has gone everywhere with me: swimming, filed trips, the library and occasionally even to church or co-op. Sometimes (especially at the pool) I would forget what shirt was wearing. So I would wonder why kids were talking to me about Veggie Tales. Then it would dawn on me, walking billboard.
Bob is now in his teen years. As the above picture attests, (taken for this post) Bob has seen better days. The white of the eyes wearing out gives a certain bloodshot look. But through it all, he keeps that goofy grin on his face.
Now-a-days it's a sleep shirt and an around the house shirt. I am sure it's also a great shirt to play Mouse Trap in. You roll the dice, you move your mice. Nobody gets hurt.
