You know that I’m not allowed to wear hoop earrings, right? Two years ago Regina told me hoop earrings were her thing and I wasn’t allowed to wear them anymore. And then for Hanukkah my parents got me this pair of really expensive white-gold hoops. And I had to pretend like I didn’t even like them.
Yesterday, I wore dress shoes instead of my normal sneakers because it was parent/teacher conferences, and I wanted the kids’ folks to think I’m a grown up.
One of my ninth graders told me I looked “fetching.”
I wanted to say, “Oh, I see you’re trying to make ‘fetch’ happen” but didn’t.
