favorite old tee

In the words of Bono, today was a BEAUTIFUL DAY!

Sunny & 70s – finally!

It’s like we skipped spring and went straight to summer. Doesn’t the view from Chicago Ave. look lovely? (Sorry for the quality of these pics today – didn’t have my camera, just my cell.)

After work, heeding Bono’s advice to not let it get away, I decided that maybe I should go for a run.

Wait, I what?

See, generally I share Elijah Wood’s point of view in that epic cinematic masterpiece The Faculty:

“I don’t believe a person should run unless he’s being chased.”

But it was simply too nice out, so I took a short 25-min jog near the lake – in my favorite old tee:

I stole this tee from my grandpa (no, really – I went and took it from his drawer without him knowing), and I absolutely love it for many reasons. First of all, it’s been worn super thin and feels as soft as a pug’s ear. Secondly is the humor that I would ever be able to run a 10k. And lastly, dated 1982, this vintage tee is older than me! By not even a year, but still! Also, feel free to ignore the post-run “glow” here, eh?

I later told my Gpa that I took it, and I think he was more bemused than anything, like, “Why would you want that old thing?!” But he also gets a kick out of it when I wear it. As do I – win-win!
