Tomorrow is Friday. What will I wear? For those of you who don't know me personally, you've not had the pleasure of seeing me face-to-face at work and laugh at my get-up. I like to celebrate that I made it through another week and that the upcoming weekend is mine to fill with unlimited diversions. Okay, so the reality is that I'll stay home and do more schoolwork, but I like to dream! So in celebration of my Fridays (my favorite day of the week) I usually deck myself out in some type of "costume." Last week I wore my pink school shirt, pink glitter eyeshadow and eyeliner (and I don't mean the cheap Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen stuff but the type of glitter you'd use in an art project), and a pink feather and sequin princess crown. I don't know who I was trying to be, but I felt good. I usually wait until inspiration hits to decide what to wear....usually sometime between Friday morning when I wake up and when I let my students in the room at 7:15. So tomorrow is filled with much anticipation of who I'll be and the fact that I'll be doing it with tackiness and flair. I mean, wouldn't you take your teacher seriously if she was dressed as a superhero, tights, cape and all?
You see, everyone has a vice...mine just happens to be costumes and glitter. There's nothing wrong with that is there? If you think so, just ask my students.....they'll disagree with you in a heartbeat.
