They're comfortable, can be worn year round, and they can even let everyone know that if the gun show is in town, you have already procured your tickets.

I love t-shirts, and fortunately I have a job where t-shirts and jeans are perfectly acceptable attire. It's also a job that comes with the perk of getting a ton of free t-shirts. That's not to say I dislike dressing up a bit from time to time, however it should be noted that by "dressing up", it means wearing an untucked, button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled rolled back slightly, jeans and casual sneakers.

These are my "dress shoes". (

On a recent trip trip to Wal-Mart, I strolled through the men's clothing section to look around. I had no intention of buying anything, just killing some time while my kids were at a youth group thing at church. Then I saw the shirt you see me so proudly wearing in the picture above.

It had everything I look for in a t-shirt. 1) It was a t-shirt, and 2) It displayed a cool logo of something I enjoy (in this case, The Avengers). That's it (I'm pretty easy to please). Then I took a look at the price. $7.50! How could I pass that up? A great shirt for under $10? It was a no brainer.

With all that said, I was hesitant. My dresser already has two drawers overflowing with t-shirts. Do I need another one? More specifically, does a 36-year old guy need an Avengers t-shirt? Certainly the manufacturer's research and development department feels there's a market for them or they wouldn't make them in XL and XXL sizes.

This is how my mind works, even over something as simple as buying a freaking t-shirt. Unlike a normal person, I can't just grab it and go. I wrestle with whether or not it's time to grow up and start acting my age, whatever that even means. Obviously the decision I made is clear, because thankfully, the voice in my head that wrestled with the decision, was drown out by the voice that said, "who cares?"

That's the great thing about t-shirts, they're an expression of who we are. Today, I'm a laid back guy who tries to be funny and likes good superhero movies (particularly those where I apparently bear a striking resemblance to one of the stars) . Tomorrow, I may be the laid back guy who tries to be funny and enjoys Star Wars movies.

The point being, that what other people think ultimately doesn't matter. If you don't think you're too old for t-shirts, then you're never too old for t-shirts. Wow, that got a little deep there at the end, didn't it?
