once i got this really nice shirt from a friend of mine. a simple, white wife beater, full of holes and with ‘poor n happy’ printed on it. i think i got it at a time when i was ,surprise surprise, very poor, which when i come to think about is usually the case. no one becomes a dancer to earn money…the shirt went through a lot and a while back i cut out the text and saved it and today i finally stitched it onto another shirt.
if i remember it correctly, there was an intended ambiguity about the words, hence it could mean both ‘and happy’ or ‘unhappy’. of course the first option is my preference. if you are poor, you might aswell be happy, otherwise it would be even shittier to be poor. eh…don’t you think?
