the sleepless in seattle shirt goes poof
My totally favorite shirt is going poof.
This is my Sleepless in Seattle sleep tee. I grabbed it at the Seattle airport on my way to a Squaw Valley mentor gig when I realized [late] I was sharing a house with other mentor types and maybe should have something decorous in the bag to wander about in at odd hours.
And there it was. This gray tee with pink accents that came to my knees and said “Sleepless in Seattle” real big across the front.
[I never would have bought a tee that said “Sleepless in Seattle” on it if I had not been in an airport in a hurry.]
Who knew it would become my favorite?
It did. And I wore it FOR YEARS.
And then —
It started real innocent. Just some fraying around the neck. Then around the sleeves. The material got thinner. I started worrying about it in the wash and putting it in with extra extra delicate delicates.
Now horizonal threads are evaporating in the back. Super interesting horizontal slits are forming in the material.
It can only be a matter of time.
