Have you ever heard about Overheard in New York? I think that's the name of it, but people write about all the conversations they overhear people having. Well over the weekend, I decided that I was going to play with my hair a bit. Hey, it's my hair and I'll do what I want. I'm grown! :P Anyhoo, it also happened to be President's Day, and well, seeing as how swimming is almost over, and they were having huge sales at Ann Taylor, weeeellll I decided to go shopping. I bought the cutest dress ever and it was work appropriate and I decided to wear it today.
I was standing at the chalkboard today writing the morning message for my kids when I hear this (mind you they are all in the classroom and I'm WRITING on the board:
Student 1: "Where's Ms. _____________?"
Student 2: "I don't know, I guess we have a substitute."
Student 3: (After standing next to me in a state of confusion for a good solid minute) "Oh it's you. I like your haircut."
Me: "Thank you."
Student 1: "Oooooh, it IS Ms. ___________."
As heard during the class switch:
Student 1: "I wonder what she looks like."
Student 2: "Yeah, they said she actually looks nice today."
Hmmmm as opposed to every other day?
As heard during my walk through the building this morning... "I love your hair!" (several times) and "I can't believe how cute you look in your dress!". Just another few signs that I really am that boring and apparently wear WAY too many pants. I cut my hair and wear a dress and people don't know WHAT to think... :P
