Today, on the way to bus duty after school, one of my students popped up in front of me and exclaimed, in apparent shock, “Mrs. Karp! You’re wearing pants!!!”
Bemused, I said “Yes, I was wearing them all during class too. What did you think I was wearing?”
He replied, “That’s a bold sartorial choice for you; moving in a new direction!”
I told him, “Just because I like skirts does not mean I can’t wear pants sometimes.” He smiled and bopped off to his bus and spring break.
Children are weird.
