The College Shirt

Yesterday, teachers were told to wear college shirts from their respective alma maters to support Gen Tx Day & ACES at our school. During lunch, a colleague asked if I had any of my shirts from “that college in Canada you went to.” I said no, and explained that they no longer fit me.  My colleague then said, “I bet if you tweeted out that you needed a T-shirt, your students would make you one.”

Challenge accepted.

Here’s the tweet:

Sure enough, two of my juniors, who admittedly should have been studying for their IB Economics paper the following morning, texted me:

And here’s the shirt:

It’s not an official UW shirt. It doesn’t have any of UW’s colors – red, black, and gold. It’s not even blue and khaki!!

But it IS the best college shirt I have ever owned!

Challenge complete. Thank you Michelle and Anita!!
