Would you wear it?

I breezed into commie clothes and got a funny t-shirt which i barely read.  After walking around in it for half an hour and a couple of people saying, “are you wearing that to the wedding?” i decided i should go back to commie and upgrade my attire.  On my return trip i found a nice embroidered lightweight shirt, which was praised by several people after i emerged with it on.

The next day i walked into the Acorn smoke shack and guest Johnny said, “Oh i like that shirt,” to which i replied, “Would you wear it?” to which he unhesitatingly shot back, “yes!”.  I immediately pulled the shirt over my head and handed it to him.  He stripped his shirt off before a slightly shocked new visitor and put the embroidered one right on. The total length of our exchange was less than 2 minutes.  I walked off wearing his simple green t-shirt.

The pitch i made to the PBS reporter who was just here is we basically have two choices: we can learn to share things, be generous and cooperate, OR we can continue to be selfish, possessive, and untrusting.  In the latter case, the world dies.  Let’s practice giving stuff away in a big way.

    Absolutely … It’s one of my greatest pleasures to give away treasures. That way they go on spreading joy in the world. LOVE this post so much! 🙂

    My father was visiting Eugene a few weeks ago and was completely blown away when he complimented my friend Nick on a beautiful vest and Nick immediately gave it to him. Generosity sure does make the world a little brighter.
