An explanation...

I should have known ALISON would find the one detail from the pictures in the last post that needs explaining...hehehehe
She wants to know what it says on the shirt that hubs is wearing in this picture:
So, hubs and my brother AJ get together about once a week and watch a show on the BBC called Top Gear. It's actually a really good show, very funny and entertaining...but also all about cars and anything else with a motor in it. They have a professional driver on the show called The Stig....who's a total badass, and each week drives a different car around a track and they rate it against all the others. Usually the cars are super expensive high end cars... Nobody knows what The Stig looks like because he's always wearing a white driving suit and a helmet. So last year for Christmas, we got my brother a shirt
and then for hub's birthday - they gave HIM a shirt (they were a wee bit worried he'd be offended....but when hubs cracked up and proceeded to put it on and wear it proudly, they stopped worrying)

I should do a post about hubs and all his nutty t-shirts one day...

You should all know that when I met him, he always wore PRESSED long pants...a button down shirt with a leather jacket...and perfectly gelled hair. He wouldn't be caught dead in shorts and a t-shirt...no way. And then we started dating - and it was a downhill slide after that. He doesn't wear anything BUT shorts and t-shirts. And ironing doesn't exist in our world - it's all about a wet washcloth and a toss in the dryer. Classy!

I think I ruined him...

I think she's seen your special shirt - I might have sent her a photo.

I totally want to see the shirt collection - he should put on a fashion show.

I especially like the "I used to be a____"
