I have this awesome dragon t-shirt that I wear all the time, and which I’ve owned for, like, six years, and I only just realized the other night that it glows in the dark. The process by which I discovered this was a matter of me stumbling through the bedroom with the lights out so as to not wake Colleen, seeing the ethereal shape of a dragon staring back at me from the darkened mirror, and going “Aaaaaaaagggggghhhh!”
Alternatively, I guess it’s possible that it actually didn’t glow in the dark before and the depleted-uranium laundry detergent I’ve been using is to blame.
Alternatively to that, maybe it never glowed before because it’s actually a magic shirt, and it’s only glowing now because orcs are near. I should probably make sure my doors are locked.
