My Wild Side

This post needs a bit of a backstory...

When I turned 21, my long-distance boyfriend, Mr. Smith, made a comment that it would be hilarious to make a t-shirt that read "Lick for $5" on the front of it. Since I was in the midst of the craziest days of my life, I took him up on that deal, had Prina draft in Sharpie those words across my white t-shirted chest, and we headed out to the bars. (While poor Mr. Smith was 500 miles away!)

The night was legen - wait for it - dary.

Flash forward 7 years to my bachelorette party. Since it had been a running joke among my college girls for so many years, it seemed only appropriate to recreate the look. Prina did an excellent job on the new version... even doing it in pink Sharpie that time to coincide with Kimhead's bachelorette party theme colors.

I'm not sure who all knew about the shirt, but I wasn't exactly hiding the story. In fact, it was one of my favorite ones to tell. So a few weeks ago, this happened:

I was standing with 2 guys I know and I was handed a check from someone. There was some banter back and forth about what the check was for. Soon, it turned to a joke, since the check was for only $172.83. Apparently, that became my going rate. I about died laughing when one of them turned out the gem.... "Was the 83 cents to swallow?"

Instantly, the other piped up and shouted, "Hey! That's what you should've written on the back of your Lick for $5 t-shirt!"

Damn straight. Wish we would've thought of it then.

I have a feeling it's too late now. I don't think that would go over too well if Kimhead made me wear it at my baby shower!
