The other day, I was in my gym...and I saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that said: "Dear Santa, I Can Explain."

It's (still) August. So, clearly, he has a great deal to explain!

Sadly, he was gone before my run on the treadmill was over...before I could try to explain why I would want to take a picture of the shirt....

That "Santa" t-shirt sighting got me thinking:

The T-shirts we choose to wear say a great deal about us. They can be amusing, they can be serious, or they can promote a cause, or places and products that we endorse ... or, we can simply wear the T-shirt ... because it was FREE.

Would you (publicly) wear any of these t-shirts? (Craig Allen photo).
