Well, it finally happened.
After six years of wearing my absolute favorite shirt on the planet, I put it on for an afternoon workout, only to discover a giant hole right under the arm.
I don’t even know how it happened. I wore it last week. Was that hole there last week? I mean, I would have put it on groggy and in the dark at 5 am, but I think I would have noticed, or at least felt a breeze.
This shirt was there for me in my first fitness competition.
This shirt was there for me when I was learning how to do pull-ups.
This shirt came along strong for the Women’s March in Chicago.
I hung out with great people in this shirt.
This shirt helped me pay tribute to my dear departed niece.
The one bright spot in all of this is that the store I bought my t-shirt from still sells them, and I have already ordered a new one to replace it. Yes, my floor has dog hair dust bunnies on it. Yes, I’m overdue for a dental cleaning. Yes, it has been a horrifically long time since my last haircut. But this t-shirt is on its way.
