For some reason, it seems I get stains on my shirts more often than the average bear. I have a shirt that I really like, but unfortunately, I got a stain on it. Now that shirt is really comfortable, and its neutral color went well with a pair of shorts that are also very comfortable. I like comfortable.
And you know, I also like frugal. So, I considered how I could save this shirt from being delegated to “pajama shirt” status. Then I thought about one of my favorite stores – Dollar Tree. If Dollar Tree had an iron on transfer that I could apply over the stain, no one would know. No one except my blog readers. But you all are my tribe! You all read my posts. Post after post after post. You “get” me. Either that or you’re still trying to figure it all out.
Well, you know me. I went to the Dollar Tree. There were actually four choices of iron on transfers! One was about coffee. It said, “But First, Coffee.” Now I don’t drink coffee. It’s possible I could start drinking coffee to make this all work out, but unfortunately, I don’t like coffee’s bitter taste, so that’s not an option. The coffee one is out.
“Girl Power” and one that said “Let’s Flamingle” weren’t exactly right either.
But then I saw it.
Adventure Awaits! Is this perfect for me or what? I like adventures. I like flowers. I always thought pink and light brown looked very nice together. As fast as I could, I plunked down my five quarters on the counter and happily cried out, “Sold!”
I felt so happy. I almost hugged the cashier, but then I thought if I hugged her, she might think I want to “flamingle.” I’m not really sure what that means, so I thought I better just pay and leave and try to act like a normal person as best I can.
Once home, I applied the iron-on transfer. I had just a little trouble with the “ur” in the word “Adventure”, but I ironed that section a couple more times thinking, u r not gonna get another five quarters out of me, Dollar Tree! I’m gonna make this one work. If I fail, well, I got another pajama shirt after all.
But, in the end, like most adventures, everything worked out just fine. In fact, the iron-on transfer covered up the stain so well, I’m thinking of giving up napkins completely!
Now THAT would be an adventure!
