Devil Shirt

September 30, 2011

Shirt: Old Navy
Jeans: Reitman's
Belt: Land's End
Shoes: Naturalizer

This shirt will forever be known as the devil shirt.

This was the shirt I was wearing the day I was teaching my grade 9 students about run-opn sentences and sentence fragments. I was going old school that day and using an overhead projector. I was leaning over the projector writing down student answers when suddenly the mood of the room changed.

Students started to look at each other; some started giggling. They started getting squirrelly. I sternly (or as stern as I can be) told them to cut it out and on we continued.

It wasn't until later on that day when I realized just what happened.

I was at home and walked by a mirror, glanced over and saw that the sunlight steaming in from the window behind me made my shirt absolutely sheer. Much like the light of an overhead projector.

Devil shirt.


  1. Ahhhh! That is a fashion/teaching horror story! When I first read devil shirt I thought no way, it's so cute, but that's terrible!

  2. Lol ohhh dear. Brutal. I can't help but laugh!!

  3. I laughed too after I cried and then drank a box of wine.

  4. Oops - that stinks! I do love the polka dots though!

  5. Oh noooo! I'll bet the memory of their hot teacher is going to be burned into their little warped 9th grade minds forever! ;)
