Topic: Anyone read any witty sayings on tee shirts?

I love funny t-shirts! http://www.mentalfloss.com/ has some of the best!

I don't like the one I see little kids wearing that says "Just be glad I'm not your kid." I know it's a joke, but still...!

Misuse of the apostrophe is one of my pet peeves.
Our high school football managers had jerseys this year with "Your only as weak as you're weakest link" printed on them.
It was NOT a typing error.

I remember when I learned how to read in kindergarten - I decided that I was going to read the whole Bible that night. This new "power" was awesome! (I made it to chapter 5 in Genesis that night, skipping over a few of the names.)

Children's books I discovered and read over and over were Heidi, Old Yeller, and the Little House series.
Topic: reminiscing-- childhood poems.

We had to compile a book of poems in 6th grade.

The one I remember best is

"I like the fall
the mist and all"

That was the first time I remember reading something and realizing that words can be simply beautiful.

I have not stopped reading since.

This will not help anything, but I use it with my students to show how very hard the English language really is.
