A friend of mine questions this shirt every time I wear it. He hates the word "no," as he associates it with a strong negativity, and rightfully so, as it's negative in its nature. However, I love "NO." I find power in its unwavering certainty. While I know embracing positivity is important to the psyche, I can't help but glow a little when I get to utter the sweet nothing of a "No." The occasion is rare and coveted.
