When I was growing up, I was a skinny kid. I’m talking rail thin. 6’2″, 170 pounds thin. Taco Bell everyday for lunch? Sure! Why not?
But, as happens to most of us, somewhere in my mid-20’s my metabolism ground to a halt. Unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention and continued to eat whatever I wanted. And so I began to swell.
Several years into my steady progression of larger and larger clothing sizes, I ran across a t-shirt that I really liked, but wasn’t available in a size that I could wear.
Something about the shirt struck me, though, so I bought it in XL and stuck it in the back of my closet. Maybe someday…
