Exo-Wisdom on a T-Shirt

By: June Bond 3 years ago

Wisdom can be found in surprising places. We must be aware of its presence in order to learn and grow from it. I have found great opportunities for snippets of wisdom on the graphics of t-shirts. These short messages make me chuckle, belly laugh, or shout, “Oh yeah!”


I read the messages on peoples’ shirts, on the pages of catalogs, and on the walls of t-shirt shops. What does the message mean for the wearer? For society? For my business and my life? Would someone wear a phrase they didn’t believe?! Once, I was in an elevator and a fellow passenger was a BIG man wearing a shirt partially hidden by a leather jacket. What I thought I saw on the shirt was a huge multi-colored eye. I apparently forgot the first two rules of elevator travel: don’t talk to any one and keep your eyes pointed upward to the elevator floor numbers. Yes, I asked if it was an eye. Without blinking, the wearer confirmed my perception. When I exited the lift, my husband said, “I don’t believe you asked him that.” I replied, “If someone wears a giant eyeball, he is asking to be noticed.” Maybe I should have said I was making eye-contact, but that is breaking elevator rule number 3.

I will be blogging about the hundreds of t-shirt messages I have collected, appreciating the wisdom, inspiration, and humor they project.

But seriously, does anyone know why Victoria’s Secret prints PINK on shirts that are not?

For more wisdom, inspiration, and humor make a coaching appointment with Dr. June.
