The Best T-Shirts in Life Are Free
Loyal readers might remember this post from a few weeks back, when I was knee-deep in renewable energy research. To sum it up, I had to put 10 of my closest family and friends on the chopping block, giving their emails to the Missouri Clean Energy proponents in order to get a free T-shirt.
Well, today my efforts finally paid off when I got an email saying that SLU’s post office had a package with my name on it. I instantly ran out the door to the school post office, thinking my Neil Diamond Halloween costume had arrived, but was surprised to see the return address belonged to the Missouri Coalition for the Environment.
To be honest, I had written off the idea of this T-shirt coming weeks ago. I figured it was just a ploy to get email addresses out of me, and that the chances of me getting a T-shirt were practically nonexistent. Plus, I also imagined they read my op-ed and decided I don’t deserve a T-shirt.
But the environmentalists surprised me and were true to their word, and now I have a pretty neat, green (surprise surprise), Missouri Renewable Energy T-shirt. I shall wear it proudly and know that somewhere out there, 10 of my closest friends and family members are receiving rather annoying daily email updates about Proposition C. Totally worth it.
