If you are a regular reader, you may know that I have been attempting recently to start my own business. The problem has been that I go into each venture, each idea, with much enthusiasm and good intentions. But somewhere along the line, something happens and I shelve the idea.
I’ve been working on another idea for some time, mostly in my head. I do scribble down the content and have amassed quite a list. The project? Custom t-shirts. Let me explain:
With my recent increase of watching entertainment (I think to call it ‘watching television’ to be technically incorrect), which includes programming with different languages, I have been watching using closed captioning. It certainly started by watching British television; some of what was being said with accents were down right unintelligible! But once the CC (closed captioning) was turned on, it stayed on.
It has become sort of a game with me and The Kid. Our personal favorite is [SCOFFS]. We repeat it whenever it is displayed. I, of course, win most of the time, as he “watches” while he is engaged with his laptop or phone. But we have taken to actually just saying the word whenever we feel that we, ourselves, are engaged in a scoff.
So, it occurred to me that it would make a very funny tee. It would definitely be an inside joke for us, but entertaining for others. I am sure that we are not the only ones watching television with CC on. And not on because we’re all going deaf, but for the simple reason that we can now really “hear” what is being said.
a) Would you buy such an article of clothing?
b) Would you wear it?
c) Would you give it as a gift?
d) What would be your favorite CC description?
e) How much would you expect to spend (does not include shipping and/or tax)?
I am including a short list of CC that I would like to use, but have almost a hundred others. Before I go head first into this venture, I would love some feedback from you!
Thank you in advance!
