Shrits aren't the only things that shrink around here

I haven't had a big NSV in a bit, so I thought I'd share this. Today I was talking to the GF about LOST, and I brought up how a couple seasons ago, the forum I go to held a T-shirt design contest that I entered and ultimately won. The prize was a free shirt with my design. I asked for a 2X even though I was between 2 and 3 at the time. The shirt shrunk and I couldn't wear it anymore, so it got tucked away somewhere when I moved to my house a year and a half ago.

Anyhow, she asked if she could see it, so I started digging through my closets and finally found it. I'm wearing it right now, and although it is a bit short, it does fit a bit loosely. So I guess I'm now between XL and XXL.

I'm particularly excited about this because my father still has a stash of my old high school clothes. My style back then was almost entirely black concert tees, but I have one shirt in particular that I bought at a department store and never got a chance to wear because I didn't try it on. It's an XL, but I must have gotten it during my senior year when I was growing out of XL and in denial about it. I'm looking forward to wearing that shirt in public. My girlfriend isn't. I don't have an image of it at the moment, but if I remember, I'll post one some day, but I will say it is an anime style shot of this.
