a swing and a miss
I’m sure I’m letting some part of my inner fanboy (also one of the new words in M-W’s Collegiate Dictionary) down. But putting this on a t-shirt, no matter how many colors its offered in, does not fall under my definition of “totally cool” as the google sponsored ad promised.
It kinda takes me back to high school, had a very nerdy friend (at times) David Dahl. He’d be considered a geek from the “old school” that prided himself on encyclopedic knowledge of a particular arena. In his case, Doctor Who. Not that new pretty Who these kids today watch, but the old school, every planet is the same rock quarry Who that was all we had in my day… and we liked it! Other highlights of being friends with him was that he once created loaded dice and tried to pass them off while playing D&D and at another point he stole my digital watch (which I still thought was a pretty neat idea) and after a brief disagreement, smashed it to bits… in full view of my other friends. The worst of this was that they let me look all over for it and wonder where I could have lost it for over a week before one of them told me what happened.
Ah, school days. Not that I’m in touch with any of those people anymore, not even through the many old classmate Facebook friend requests. Most of those come from people who I didn’t really hang out with all in high school, so it makes me wonder why they’d want to connect now. 😕
