A chance encounter with a friend’s velour shirt prompted a repressed memory to bubble to the surface of my brain tonight: When I was like 6 or 7, I had this velour shirt that was my FAVORITE item of clothing. I called it my “soft as a kitten’s fur” shirt and was obsessed with the idea of getting an iron-on for it that had a picture of a kitten and said “SOFT AS A KITTEN’S FUR” in script. I was a pretty cool kid, not gonna lie.
