Welcome to The Academy

Hubs has a lovely chocolate brown t-shirt. It's got two electric guitars, the words 'ROCK N ROLL' in tarnished bronze lettering, some random grey print and it's also got, inexplicably, the year '1973' in something sparkly. I think it's really nice.He works for an inter-denominational Christian organisation and he wears this funky shirt to work often. But I never see him wear it by itself. It's always covered up with this collared off-white (currently un-ironed) shirt:

I wondered why he always covers up the cool brown one. I asked him one day. He replied, "Because it's got ..." here he pointed to the small print in the design, "... I didn't realise when I bought it, but look: 'Academy Of Sin'."
Yeah. Probably not the best for work.

Oops!! LOL

I once bought Dan a shirt that looked really cool & after a meeting with Pastor Warren, we learnt that "Diablo" means Devil!! D'oh! He has never worn it again!

Maybe you could get some fabric paint and distort the word sin?

Oh dear, yes. Diablo sounds like a really cool word, doesn't it? Like it means "white-water rafting" or something.

I'm wondering what I could change 'sin' into?

Academy Of Singing?
Academy Of Gin?
Academy Of Technological Sciences and Engineering?

Hm. I'll work on it.

I reckon there's just enough room for a 'G'. Makes no grammatical sense, but... Jen.

In response to Beck's little note, call it a correction if you will, but it actally said Diablo Sueno, which directly translated from Spanish via varying websites, means Devil I hear/sound, so between Dave and I, we could join a sinful acadmey and hear the devil just becuase of the shirts we own... How interesting
