Then why wear a t-shirt with text on it? I never understood that. Unless one is poor enough to have to wear what is available, or gifted to one, etc.

She has my full sympathy! When I got a corneal ulcer I couldn't read for a couple of days, then had a patch on the injured eye and could only read with the other one, which gave me headaches. It was the longest week in my life. (This was before audiobooks so I don't know if that would have helped. Probably not.)
