I was going to write a really short post. It was going to say simply “Gabe says that you can’t wear a concert shirt to a show where that same band is playing. Discuss.”
But things are never that simple.
First of all, I called Gabe at work to ask him if I could tell the internet that he thinks you can’t wear the shirt of the band you are going to see to that show. First he said yes, then he said “And it isn’t just me! Everybody knows you can’t wear the shirt of the band to the show!” And in the background I hear his co-worker, and apparently hype-man, yell “DON’T BE THAT GUY!”
The thing is, Laurie and I are going to see Bon Jovi this coming Sunday. I got to thinking – I still have my Slippery When Wet jersey from February of 1987, and when I say jersey I mean jersey. It is white with black three-quarter sleeves. I would show you a picture of me wearing it, but my iPhoto is still broken.
Anyway, because I needed backup I asked twitter: If I go see Bon Jovi and wear my “Slippery When Wet” shirt from 1998 does it make me a total loser or am I keeping it real?
And then TwoBusy said “Yes” which I kind of figured and then Laurie said:
Which is kind of good point, because you know what? It isn’t 1987. It is 2011 and I no longer have to drink in parking lots (I’m not saying I don’t do that, I am saying I don’t have to do that. Now they let me drink in bars.) and since I make more than $2 babysitting, I can afford real wine, I don’t have to mix my mom’s jug wine with orange juice and pretend it is a wine cooler.
Hi Mom. Hi Jill!
But back to this who t-shirt business.
Then Gabe sent me this with the subject “1:50 Mark”.
I hate it when he is right.
Is he right? Is the PCU trailer even a valid argument? What should I wear on Sunday?
And don’t say those jeans that have leather lace ups in the back because I threw those away like four years ago.
This should help you make an informed decision.
I guess I could just wear my Cinderella shirt.
