yes, levi’s, words do have power

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me. That’s what I was taught as a child. What tosh. Taunts and jibes still stung, no matter how much I pretended that they didn’t. I learnt young – as most of us do – the effects of what you say or write or carve into your desk. Of course, it’s not all bad. Words can also inspire, send a shiver down your spine, and make you giggle (et cetera, et cetera, et cetera). The pen keyboard, after all, is mightier than the sword Glock 9.

So, naturally I love my new Levi’s t-shirt. Some (AKA a sarky pal) may say that the slogan’s redundant, but there’s no harm in being reminded – especially now that the C-BOMB has become a part of everyday vernacular. BTW, how did that happen? And, am I the only one who can’t stand it?

Anyway, back to the t-shirt. I printed it myself at the Levi’s Regent Street store with a screen and squidgy and everything. I crashed the party on Friday to check out Print Workshop – an in-store extravaganza kick started by graphic artist Anthony Burrill (who came up with the first Tees). And now everyone can get in on the act with their own London-inspired slogan. All you have to do is tweet your idea adding the hashtag #PrintLondon and your missive might be picked to be printed the following day. I’m lobbying for I AM NOT A CELEBRITY. Perfect, don’t you think?
