Half Nekkid Thursday: Is My Friendship Beginning to Wear Off?

This is me in my favorite T-Shirt. I call this shirt, Mr. Green, and he is 15 years old.

It's an old softball shirt and it is ripped and torn (much like my body) and is nowadays as paper thin as Dick Cheney's conscience.

Schmoop, among others, would like me to throw Mr. Green out.

What should I do? I'll let you guys decide.

A different perspective of me and Mr. Green. He is my friend. Sometimes, my only friend.

Should he stay or should he go?


Happy Half-Nekkid Thursday.

I hope you join me tomorrow for a brand new Blog-Fo-Mercial©

Cheers!!

Well Matt-Man, I'm thinking Mr. Green is making me a little green - not sure if that is envy or tonights dinner revisiting!

HHNT!!

Ms. Inconspicuous said...

As thin as Dick Cheney's conscience? *snort* Okay, I spit out my soda on that one.

I say keep it. Really, what's the harm? Besides, it looks good on you. :)

Happy HNT!

stealth said...

errr... you could make a ... cool pillow case??

then you could snuggle with it ;)

Mariposa said...

OH!!!! HHNT!

Mr. Fabulous said...

Favorite T-shirts must never be thrown out. They must disintegrate of their own accord.

I Smile 2 Much said...

Matt-Man said...

Dana: Well if you finally realize which one it is, let me know. I'm interested. Cheers!!

Ms. I: Ha. Thanks. One vote to keep. HHNT and Cheers!!

Stealth: Ah. Not a bad idea. Thanks for stopping and Cheers!!

Micky-T said...

Keep it!
All my best are long gone! I wish I had kept them, I miss them, [sob]

Had a sailing buddy when I was out [there] and I had nothing to give him on his birthday so I gave him my best and thinnist, same color as yours. He looked at me in the eye and said,"Are you sure?" Said yes. He told me later, that present meant the most and he'll never forget it.
Shit, I haven't forgoten it, wish I kept it!!!!!!!!!!

Matt-Man said...

Mariposa: What does that mean!? Cheers!!

Fab: I tend to agree with you. It touches me more than any woman ever has. Literally. Cheers!!

Smile: You had to go and pee on my Bar-B-Q didn't you. HHNT and Cheers Hot Stuff!!

Matt-Man said...

Mick: That is incredibly sweet, if not a bit disturbing, Mick. Cheers!!

Turnbaby said...

NOOOOOOOOO you can't throw it out!!!! Fabby is right--they must disintegrate that last time you wash them.

And DAYUM those are some mighty fine thighs!!

leelee said...

I agree with Mr Fabulous, fav t shirts cannot be thrown out..my hubs had a t-shirt with the batman logo (don't ask) on it after years and years that thing finally disintegrated. But when it was around..I washed it and lovingly folded it like it was brand new.

Fav t-shirts must go when they are ready...like kids.

HHNT! You look good in it.

HUGS!!

Lu' said...

Well for starters your adorable. Now on to the shirt, KEEP IT, but never never NEVER wear it in public. Blogblic is OK. It would look nice with a pair of Maryjanes. No I am not speaking of those twins from Iowa.

Matt-Man said...

TB: I am feelin the love and so is Mr. Green. My thighs thank you. Cheers!!

Leelee: Thanks and your husband has fine taste, for I have a Batman logo shirt myself. Cheers!!

Lu: Why thank you. And don't worry, Mr. Green doesn't make public appearances. Cheers Lu!!

Jeff B said...

After viewing pic #2 the word sashay comes to mind.

Keep it, you never know when a good dust rag will be needed.

Matt-Man said...

Jeff: I am glad you caught that, it was intentional. Ha.

As for the dust rag comment...I'll pretend I didn't hear that. Cheers!!

Roger said...

Shirts like that are great for oil changes and dropping transmissions I have about 9 of them. So I say keep it to the last stitch!

ladyjaye82 said...

Now THAT is sexy

Matt-Man said...

Roger: You are so correct. We have after all, been through thick and thin. Cheers!!

LadyJaye: Ha...I thought you might have a fetish for tissue thin cotton. Cheers!!

Odat said...

Well...I say keep it...I keep all mine...and wear them around the house....as long as you don't go public with it...I see no harm....but I do like the idea of making a pillow case out of it......
Peace

Matt-Man said...

Odat: It looks as though Mr. Green may get his reprieve after all. Cheers Odat!!

The Absurdist said...

I have what I call "comfy shirt" from the Gap when I was 16. Oh HELL to the no am I getting rid of that.

But I must say, since that thing looks like a dress, I am not sure about keeping it. Unless you get wifey to wear it.

Polt said...

Anything that puts your thighs in such a flattering light is definitely a keeper!!!! :)

HAPPY HNT!

Leighann said...

I say keep it, although if it were my husbands it would have a late night date with the trash can :D

By the way, would you be offended if I told you that I wanted to lick your thighs??

Biscuit said...

awww...Mr. Green has to stay. I vote for reincarnating him as part of a quilt.

Sassy Mama Bear said...

I'll tell you what I tell the husband...it is time to retire Mr. Green, hang him nicely in the closet, BUT never wear him again...cause once caught wearing him, he becomes an endangered species. Snip, snip, snip...

Matt-Man said...

Abs: It fit me better when I weighed a thousand pounds. Cheers!!

Polt: Why thank ya Polt!! HHNT and Cheers to you!!

Leighann: Offended? I think it just moved. Cheers!!

Matt-Man said...

BIscuit: I don't know. Mr. Green doesn't play well with others. Cheers!!

Sassy: Retirement, eh? I think I want him to Live Free, or Die. Cheers!!

Lapis Ruber said...

If you enjoy wearing it - keep it. If Schmoop decides not to come near you while you are wearing it - throw it out, no T-shirt is worth that. Happy HNT

Matt-Man said...

Lapis: Shirt or not, it is incredibly hard to get Schmoop to come near me. ; ) Cheers!!

Tug said...

I will keep t-shirts & sweatshirts until my daughter comes & throws them away, so I say keep it! (but with that neckline, you may want to add some Mr. T bling)

Knight said...

I think you should keep it and wear it as much as possible. That second picture though... You better work!

Matt-Man said...

Tug: Ha. I thing the bling would go over less well than the T-Shirt itself. Cheers Tug!!

Matt-Man said...

Knight: HA. Ya think I could be the next Ru Paul? Maybe so, but that means I'd have to shave....everything.

I would be thrown out in a second. I have been advised on numerous ocassions that the the chest hair stays or I go. Cheers!!

Bond said...

As someone who owns upwards of 60 t-shirts that get worn and another 30 or so just in storage, my answer is IF YOU THROW IT OUT YOU WILL REGRET IT

Never ever ever discard an old t-shirt...

Matt-Man said...

Bond: Amen, Brutha. Are you reading this Schmoop? Cheers Vinny!!

Jay said...

A favorite t-shirt is like a best friend. You don't throw it out just because it's getting old and a little worn.

Phfrankie Bondo said...

It ain't easy bein' green...and the pics ain't easy on mine eyes...but keep the shirt!

Matt-Man said...

Jay: That is so true, but the same doesn't apply to a wife or girlfriend. Bada Bing. Cheers!!

Phfrankie: Thanks, but I am crushed. I thought you had the hots for me. Cheers!!

Mo said...

You've just got it broken in, you can't throw it out now!

Matt-Man said...

Mo: Damn Straight. I think it has another 15 years left in it. Provided it doesn't get washed, or it may disentigrate. Cheers Mo!!

Starrlight said...

Work it Matt Man! Sashay Chante!

Keep Big Green. There are very few things as comforting on a shitty day as a favorite old t shirt.

Vixen said...

LOL Cute ;)

happyHNT

metalmom said...

My kids have tons of tshirts. Son1 has one that is almost clear (it's that thin!!)

I recently learned of a place that will make a quilt out of old tshirts. I may do that for Christmas.

I think the shirt could be just a smidge shorter!

Matt-Man said...

Starr: I'm too sexy for my shirt...too sexy for my shirt. Cheers Starr!!

Vixen: Ha...Yeah, I try. Cheers and Happy HNT Vixen!!

Metalmom: Just for you, I will trim your bottom...I mean the shirt's bottom. Cheers!!

naughty endevours said...

He is very enticing. Makes me wonder what's under there?

Schmoop said...

I honestly think you should keep your old tissue shirt. Ya big Mary!! Loves!!

Matt-Man said...

Naughty: Purrrrr. Salvation and Paradise all wrapped in one is what lies beneath. Cheers!!

Schmoop: Even in your advanced years you succumb to peer pressure. But I do love ya for it. CHEERS!!

VE said...

I say keep it...but compromise...you can only wear it on St. Patricks day.

Matt-Man said...

VE: I will not besmirch St. Patrick's good drunken name by wearing such a rag. Wait...Did I just say that? Cheers!!

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I say you should keep Mr. Green. He's a close friend and should remain with you as long as he can. You just shouldn't mess with a mans favorite garmet. You just shouldn't. Nice gams Matt-Man. Have a great day. :)

Winter said...

Yeah, what Fab and Turnbaby said. Double ditto on the thigh part.

I am currently wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt about as thin as your Mr. Green, maybe thinner since it's white and you can kinda see through it now. I will not toss Mickey! NUH UH! I wuvs him!

Matt-Man said...

Sandee: Thanks. And Ha. Gams...I love that word. Cheers Sandee!!

Winter: So Mickey is thin and white, and you can see through it, eh? Interesting. Cheers Winter!!

Real Live Lesbian said...

If there were a thin mint involved, I'd say keep Mr. Green. But without syrup and a thin mint...he needs to turn into dusting rags.

Sorry dude. Gotta go with the Schmoop on that one.

Matt-Man said...

RLL: I am crushed. Especially coming from you. I guess Mr. Green can't compete with Dana's Thin Mint drippings. But then again, what can? Cheers!!

Another Desert Rat said...

Dearheart, if you love your shirt, you should keep it - but give it to Schmoop...

My hubster has this Grateful Dead t-shirt that looks like a cobweb - he gave it to me and I am saving it for that "special occasion" at which point I will don it specifically so that he can rip it off of me. After that it shall become a super soft rag with which we shall wax the cars - thus going on to serve an even higher purpose.

Matt-Man said...

Desert Rat: Why I tremendously appreciate the idea of ripping clothes off of another, I can't see Mr. Green living a life of waxing cars. CHeers!!

motley said...

...Another eyefull, I see. I'd keep it. Hell, I'd wear it! =D

By the way, posted a picture of my butt for HNT. =]

Matt-Man said...

Motley: Well, hop inside of it with me. Mmmmm, butt. Be right over. Cheers!!

Jamie said...

Decide if you own it or it owns you. If it is a well loved reminder of good times and cherished events, keep it. If it is a habit that you just never quite eradicated, find the nearest dumpster.

Matt-Man said...

Jamie: It is far from a habit...It is a love affair. Cheers, Jamie!!

Dana said...

If there were a thin mint involved, I'd say keep Mr. Green.

*gigglesnort* When I saw your HNT last night I thought to myself, "I wonder if Matt-Man would let me clean up the chocolate syrup with that?" Then I remembered if you and your shirt were in the room, there wouldn't likely be any chocolate syrup left!

Matt-Man said...

Dana: And pardon the short response, but to put it succinctly, you would be so damn correct. Mmmmm and Yum, Cheers!!

Desert Songbird said...

Okay, I'm here (per your request), and I'll cast my vote. I say...

Sorry!

Desert Songbird said...

I know I'm in the minority, but then again, having grown up in 1960s Indiana, I'm used to be a minority...

Matt-Man said...

Songbird: Ha. Good One. But I think the majority has spoken. Cheers!!

Hammer said...

add a teal belt and some flip flops and you will be good to go!

Matt-Man said...

Hammer: You are Mr. Accessory. That was a good call. Cheers!!

Desert Songbird said...

See, we minorities rarely get a voice in voting.

Sheesh.

Matt-Man said...

Songbird: Minority or not, you were commenter #69. Woo Hoo. Cheers!!

crazy working mom said...

OMG, hubs had a budweiser shirt like this. That thing just disappeared...I really don't know what happened to it. heh heh heh

Desert Songbird said...

Of course I was. You had your doubts?

Matt-Man said...

CrAzY: You are pure evil. Poor Shirt, Cheers!!

Songbird: I'd give ya a prize, but I think it's all mine. CHeers!!

Kimmie said...

WOWZA...now don't you look....ummmm....green! ;-) Luvvvveee your chest hair my friend...purrrrrrrr...you are looking mighty sexy in that green shirt...its a keeper if you ask me.
Hugs,
Kimmie
xo

Sometimes Saintly Nick said...

I rather like Mr. Green’s color. (By the four balls of Jesus, Joseph, and Mary—what did you expect me to say!)

Travis said...

Keep it! At this stage, it's a science experiment...to measure how long it will take for the shirt to completely disintegrate.

It is your sworn duty to see this through to the end.

Matt-Man said...

Kimmie: Thanks. I'll keep it then. Cheers!!

Nick: Ha. I remember reading the first time you said that and it still cracks me up. Cheers!!

Travis: Damn it, you're right. In the name of science we must keep it. Cheers!!

Cheesy said...

I am surprised no one said let schmoop wear it for HNT~~ THE NECKLINE ALONE WOULD BE A HIT!

What is it with men and saving t-shirts?? I have made all of my boys quilts out of the ones left behind here at the house in boxes.. they were a hit.

I say DITTO on the thighs baby!

Matt-Man said...

Cheesy: Her big girls would be falling all out of the shirt....hey good idea!! My thighs thank you. Cheers Lovely!!

Jahooni said...

green means horny doesn't it? HORNY. Keep it! ;)~

As American as Apple Pie said...

Sorry to say it but...Mr. Green needs to go. But the legs are NICE!

lisa ryan said...

absolutely not! you never, never, never get rid of an old friend. Especially one that is so "you".
Hope all is well with you Matt-man! Glad you found your key.

Ginormous Boobs said...

Green suits you!

Also, you can't get rid of it. Old comfy tees are the best.

katherine. said...

there is no way I can read 80-some comments.

I hope you kept the shirt.
nice legs.
