So let me start by showing you approximately what I was wearing at school today...
(oh, and don't forget the brown flip flops)I know...not exactly what Stacy and Clinton would recommend for a teacher to wear to work. But it was just one of those mornings where I didn't really care what I was wearing and didn't spend much time on packing a lunch (string cheese and an apple...what else do you need, really?) And I grabbed the jacket at the last second because I knew it was a little chilly outside.
When I got to school, I was walking down the hallway, and a student stopped me and said, "Whoa, Miss Lacey! Are you teaching PE today?"
Later in the day, I had a student ask me in class, "Miss Lacey, are you sick today?"
For the record, no I was not teaching PE. And no, I'm not sick.
Apparently I looked frumpy today. And ill. But my classroom is so stinking cold, so I had a cold, red nose and had to keep my jacket on.
Perhaps I should put a little more time into my clothing selections at work.
Or become a PE teacher.
