What She Wore: brown herringbone pants with a light blue and light orange stripe; white, long-sleeve tee; orange, button-down cardigan; brown, round-toe heels.
Part of the deal I made with myself is that I will update here a little more often. Getting the occasional comment makes me smile and helps me forget the things that are making me crazy.
Today, I had a crazy day. I was teaching a lot–normally, I monitor and assist more that lecture, but today I was going over a test that the kids had taken. I worked steadily through first period, and when second period started, one of my students raised her hand and said to me, Mrs., there’s a hole in your pants and I can see your leg. Honestly, you could practically see my underpants! The pants were brand-new, I put them on this morning, and didn’t notice a thing, but apparently the area around the pocket had not sewn together properly.
So, what’s a girl to do?
Can’t run out of class. Can’t act embarassed, or the kids will react. Soooooo, I grabbed a clip off the overhead, clipped my pants shut, and kept right on teaching. When the period was over, I went to the principal’s office and borrowed a safety pin to get me through the rest of the day.
Sometimes these things happen. You just have to deal.
