the wife was WRONG

Point A: I am showing the wife this adorable tee shirt online, it has a polar bear on it! I want it for her, bad. I LOVE THAT POLAR BEAR!!!!!!!!!!! But she is like
"I don't wear orange" and I am like
"its not orange, they say it is 'terra cotta'" and the wife is like
"right, ORANGE! No thanks" but it has tormented me for weeks, I love that polar bear! the problem is
POINT B: Well, it is true, I am a compact person, and sometimes, to be honest, I wear kids' sizes.
So, I, um, ordered this child's tee shirt for myself. The important thing about
POINT 3: kids' sizes is that they are cheaper than adult clothes!!!!! and
Point 4: there is no question, some kids' clothes are flippin' FUN. But why should kids have all the good times?

Great shirt. I'm sure that I wouldn't fit in children sizes.

And tell Maude it happens sometimes- sometimes we are wrong- not often...but sometimes.

Gallow is six foot 3! That would be a big kid! The wife has pointed out to me that she was actually wrong about nothing here, and that I was just using the post title to get people to read. Ahem...true....

Not only do you fit, but there's room to spare. Penny looks like she's pouting because she didn't get a polar bear T.

Forizzle...why should kids have all the fun???
Love the shirt!!!

I truly love the shirt, as well as the color....I like the minimalist approach to Art, another favorite for me to copy is Paleolithic drawings, way too cool. Line drawings always have movement, or should, they are the best.....

I buy stuff in kids sizes too! I find that little boys' shirts and blazers in particular are made tougher than women's stuff and a LOT cheaper!

Great shirt - LOVE the polar bear... is he a bi-polar bear or a mono-polar bear ??? just kidding. saw my psychiatrist today and the question has been on my mind!

Kids sizes??? Gee, I Wish ...
