was at a concert recently, and could not help but notice the
of strappy tank tops amongst the female protion of the audience. I’ve
this piece of apparel become more and more popular over the past year
so, and I can’t really decide if I like it or not.
Okay, on the con
side, there is the fact that every single girl seems to wear these damn
shirts. Granted, they are appealing to look at. However, it’s along the
same lines as... well, anything. Too much of anything makes you build
a tolerance, or immunity to it. You drink more, it takes more to get
