So, there I was, sitting in class on my computer ignoring the teacher as usual. Had Safari open not giving a hoot of what was going on in class... I decided to take a trip to shirt.woot. This wonderful shirt graced my screen and I was filled with laughter. The looks I got from my classmates..... lol!
This was just perfect for me today!
