Mother's day, shmother's day
Actually, tomorrow is Astronomy Day, but—as previously mentioned—I'll be at a wedding instead of hanging out with my astronomy club wishing the skies would clear up. So far, the forecast is . . . how shall I say . . . rainy. Which is also going to make for a fun wedding, especially since I'm getting all tarted up in a sleeveless frock meant for the middle of summer and some sort of impractical shoes that I hope to purchase at the last moment later today. (If you're female and you hate to shop, getting dressed up can be a monumental pain in the @$$.)
But back to the topic at hand. Having completely neglected to create an Astronomy Day design to sell on Stargazer Tees (a major marketing faux pas), I decided I couldn't let Father's Day get by me. And yes, Mother's Day is only a week away, but how many mothers do you know who have enough time and energy to stay up half the night stargazing? So we'll be giving Mother's Day a complete miss and going straight to Father's Day:
Any feedback from the peanut gallery? I'm guessing that women will be buying this shirt, not men, so it has to simultaneously appeal to women and just possibly look like something a guy would wear. Which is pretty tough to parse out and something I'm still learning. Personally, this is too sentimental for my taste, but I've come to discover that my taste is not mainstream enough to build a t-shirt retailing venture on.
