This is a drawing of a my striped shirt,
bought at one of those suburban housewife parties,
popular in the 80’s.
I wore it throughout the long mothering years.
It was my go to favourite,
and detested by my husband.
He thought it was surely a ‘Man’s Shirt’…
even though the buttons were on the left-hand side… which I thought defined it as a woman’s shirt,
being that men’s shirts had buttons on the right… Right?!
But why I never said…
”Well, what of it?”
at the time,
still escapes me.
