I’m on a lot of cold medication so it’s possible this isn’t as funny as I think it is.

I’m on a lot of cold meds but I thought you’d enjoy. Or not.  Stop judging me.  I’m sick.

 

They’re in my shop if you want one, but be aware that everyone you wear it around is going to tell you that your shirt is on inside out.  But then you can flash them a raccoon face (and flash them in general if you aren’t wearing something underneath) and they won’t bother you again.  EVERYONE WINS.

PS. A few of you are having trouble getting the video to load so (spoiler alert) this is what you’re missing:

  14. Well, Hunter is not amused, but I am! The shirt is awesome! I feel reasonably ok today, after going through a mini effexor withdrawal yesterday. So glad the hubz was able to pick it up for me last night! I was all, “I feel like I have electrical adrenalin zapping my brain?”… and I looked it up, and it totally said, “Withdrawal symptoms can appear as little as 4 hours after a missed dose, and can include AN ELECTRICAL ZAPPING SENSATION IN THE BRAIN!” Which totally made me exclaim loudly, and with glee, “Holy crap! See? I’m NOT crazy!!!” At least not about brain zaps anyway.
