It was a beautiful day here on the Eastern Shore. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and the street was void of traffic. I guess people were going about their day, shopping, eating, and working. As for me, I was going into the post office to pick up my mail. Thirty five years ago when we moved here from Connecticut there was no rural delivery. We didn’t even have a street address. We’ve always kept the PO Box.
I walked into the post office and said hi to the woman in charge. She came out from behind her cubicle and I immediately saw something odd. She was wearing a green sweatshirt with the word “PINK” emblemized across it at an angle. Was I confused, was she, or was the shirt’s manufacturer color blind? It seems today everyone is wearing logo attire. From the businessman in his tailored suit with the Gucci logo on his briefcase to the teenager in her ripped jeans and Supreme hoodie, everyone was sporting a brand name.
Why do people wear such items, I asked myself. It was as if everyone was trying to show off their wealth and status. But what was the point? Why did people feel the need to wear logos?
Some people might say that it’s just a way to express themselves. They might say that they like the way certain brands make them feel. But I think there’s more to it than that.
I think people wear logos because they want to be seen. They want to be noticed. They want to be part of something.
And what better way to do that than to wear a logo that everyone recognizes? A logo that says, “I’m part of this group. I’m successful. I’m important.”
But is that really what’s important? Is it really important to be seen and noticed? Is it really important to be part of a group?
I don’t think so. I think what’s really important is to be yourself. To be happy with who you are. To not care what other people think.
So if you want to wear logo attire, go for it. But don’t do it because you think it will make you happy. Do it because you like it. Do it because it makes you feel good.
And if you don’t want to wear logo attire, that’s okay too. There’s nothing wrong with being yourself.
The important thing is to be happy. And to be happy, you don’t need to wear a logo.
And please, know the difference between PINK and GREEN.
There are a few possible reasons why the woman is wearing a sweatshirt that says PINK and the shirt is green.
- She might like the way the colors look together. Pink and green are complementary colors, which means they look good together.
- She might be a fan of the PINK brand. PINK is a popular brand of clothing and accessories for young women.
- She might be trying to make a statement. Wearing a PINK sweatshirt with a green shirt could be a way for her to show that she doesn’t conform to traditional gender roles.
- She might just be wearing what she feels comfortable in. There’s no need to overthink it!
Ultimately, the reason why the woman is wearing a sweatshirt that says PINK and the shirt is green is up to her. There are many possible explanations, and it’s important to respect her choices. Let us respect everyone’s choices. Christ made a choice for us all, and it was a cross.
Happy Easter Everyone.
Go UConn! And, don’t forget to check on the elderly.
I tried to think if I had any logo-embellished gear, and the only thing I could come up with is the Sperry label on the back of my boat shoes. I’ve never worn anything bearing the logo or name of a band or a brand, and probably never will.
I thought your Pink-wearing woman might have been a fan of the singer named Pink, but when I went to her website, I noticed that her logo is ‘P!nk’ with an exclamation mark rather than ‘Pink.’ So who knows?
