You can always save that rainbow shirt for next Christmas with the family.

I am impressed that the horizontal bands are in the proper order )ROY G BIV).

Sweetie, our first Christmas my DH bought me two pairs of MENS thermal underwear. AND they were too small!! :disappointed:

If you let them know (subtly) that it's not quite what you'd expected, then they tend to improve My idea of subtle was to never let him forget it, seeing as he had asked what I wanted and I said "something sparkly!!"

Mind you, I get a lot of use out of that underwear these days, it's blimmin' cold out here, so I can't complain now He was only thinking of me keeping my legs warm!!

I would just wear it once around her to make her happy, and then it conviently come up missing in the bottom of your closet.

I like the cat shirts... that rainbow one is just not for me. I also got something I didn't like: a hideous beaded necklace that just looks like a child made it and it's so gawdy. Barf! But what am I to do? She's going to expect me to wear it and we WORK at the same place! I know she meant well and I'd never break her heart but yikes!

Honey if it makes you feel ANY better I get this every year from my Dad:
http://www.llbean.com/webapp/wcs/sto...feat=502984-tn

It's become a family joke. I've had them made into teddy bears, pillows, cut them down and given them to my Mom to use as part of a quilt, cut the old one up for rags, and worn them for Halloween.

EDIT: Please note the last point they make: Generously sized for sleeping comfort. Oh boy do they mean generous. Half of my family could sleep in this thing.

One of the reasons why I became an ice hockey freak in my teens was that it made it much easier for my father , etc., to find gifts for me! I did ice hockey and Airedales in the 70s, Boxers and pewter in the 80s, rhinos and tigers in the 90s, and am doing cats and bears this decade.

But... how would you tell?

No, seriously, I actually like that silly shirt! It's tasteless, but it's so... exuberant! You could never be sad in that shirt.

And you're just cute as a button!

I did it. I wore the shirt in public. As I was about to leave for supper with a few others from the humane society tonight, my mom started pouting "you hate it, don't you? It cost a lot of money..... *sob*". So I wore the darn shirt.

Nobody missed me! I can be seen from afar!

I'd like it if it weren't for the rainbow bands in the elbow area. That is just a little too much, but the rest is cute.

Smith's Greenhouse apparently has a gift shop type thing in it. Either that, or she ordered it online for me.
