I just have to brag about my husband’s mad design skills a bit. Last weekend was the 14th Annual World Fireknife Championships, hosted by the Polynesian Cultural Center. As the resident designer, Micah had the responsibility of designing the t-shirts. He and Ray came up with a plan to do a hip-and-trendy shirt that would get them out of the ring-of-fire-on-black-shirt rut that they have been in for a while now. Micah came up with this slightly more abstract design, which was promptly rejected by the head of retail, who just couldn’t see it and didn’t think it would sell. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time for Micah to design something else. Shucks! So they had to go with his original design.
He got a call when we were at the yard sale informing him that the shirts were figuratively flying off the shelves, and that they would almost surely be sold out before the end of the competition. Moral of the story: Micah is awesome. But I’ve always known that.
