Learn From My Mistakes

In business when something works, you do it over and over and over again until it stops working.

Hi there. Woot Writer here, uncharacteristically breaking the fourth wall to relay a story:

When I was a kid, my great-grandma would bake cookies for the holiday season. Not like, a batch. I'm talking multiple tupperware containers to each of the grandchildren. Being the chubby eight or nine year old I was, I told her I found the peanut butter chocolate chip cookies to be especially delicious. Fueled by an innate desire to deliver happiness to her great-grandson, she inundated our home with cookies. The containers piled up faster than my parents could take them into the office and disperse them. And I, like a big dumb blonde goldfish, ate as many as I could. For days. Until suddenly the cookies had lost their luster.

You see, the cookies at the time were unique and novel enough that I loved them. But by eating the same cookies over and over again they became common and, eventually, sickening. My great-grandma, in her efforts to give me all the cookies I could ever want, had made me actively dislike her cookies. Seriously. My mom still uses the recipe and to this day I can't smell them without feeling kind of queasy.

That probably has something to do with the fact that I ate so many I puked down a furnace vent on my way to the bathroom and for the rest of our time in that house the bathroom smelled like cookies, but either way the point stands.

Wait, what was I talking about again?

Wear this shirt: Before it gets Reckoned and becomes available for more money in our back catalog of shirts. (Have we pimped that thing enough yet?)

Don't wear this shirt: Over the other shirts we've made that are just like it.

This shirt tells the world: "Sierra who?"

We call this color: There's such a thing as too much of a brown thing.
