I Got a Monkey T-Shirt! Or Did I?

Not too long ago, Martin over at http://www.tshirtprinting.net/personalised-t-shirts/ said he would send me a tshirt. Since it was a free giveaway, I was psyched!
 T- shirts are my favorite!

Colleen and Manda generally collect the mail and if interesting looking packages come, they always open them up to investigate. This particular day, Colleen collected the mail and called me at church.

"You got Royal Mail." says she.
"No kiddin'?" says I. "Open it up!" 
While I was hoping for an invitation to the wedding, complete with plane tickets and a hotel room, she reported that the package contained a t shirt.
"Hmmmm, a t shirt?" I ask. 
"Yup." said Colleen. "It's a nice shirt with a cheeky looking monkey on it. 
Can I have it?"
"Look further in to the package." I command her. 
I hear some rustling and she tells me
 "There's nothing else, should there be more?"

While I'm disappointed I received no wedding invitation, I'm quite pleased about the t shirt. I tell Colleen she may not have the shirt. She huffs a little, says bye-bye and puts the phone down.

After church, I go home. I've forgotten all about the t shirt. After taking the dog out and straightening up a little, I go in search of Colleen and Manda. I find them in their bedroom, each sitting at opposite ends of Colleen's bed, each holding what seems to be an article of clothing between them.

Colleen: "I saw it first."
Manda: "Tough luck. I called it!"
Colleen: "Give. It. Back. I HAD IT FIRST!"
Manda: "Let. Go. YOU'RE GOING TO TEAR IT!"
Colleen: "You stink! You always get your way!"
Manda: "If I always got my way, Mum and Dad would have sold YOU to the gypsies!"

After I saved the poor thing from the clutches of these silly girls, I take a look at it. It's the t shirt that Martin sent me, that came by way of Royal Mail, sans wedding invite. Despite travelling a fair distance and suffering a tug of war, I could tell this was a great shirt. Hey, it held up to a Colleen -Manda war, right? 

A few hours pass and Manda calls to me from the other room. 
"Mum, get your camera. I want you to take my picture."
