The World Has Gone Crazy

As if things weren't already weird this week, it got weirder.

It's spirit week here at my high school.  Today is student-teacher swap day.  Most kids were party poopers and came as "gym teachers."  The teachers, however, went all out.  Since we have a uniform at my school, many teachers (male and female alike) are wearing the girls' uniform, which is a khaki skirt, a polo, and knee socks.  Of course, they wear it the same way the girls do - untucked, with shorts showing underneath, and sleeves rolled to expose a non-regulation t-shirt.  We do, in general, attempt to discourage this manner of dress.  But then again, it's fun once in a while to josh the kids.

The kids, on the other hand, are going nuts.  Who would have known wearing a uniform (or the inverse) has such an effect on them?  I couldn't get their attention any better if my hair were on fire.  It's as if wearing a ratty t-shirt and sweatpants allows them to plug their ears for the entirety of the day.  NB:  Our gym teachers never dress like that.  They are always well put together, even when in workout clothes.  Not that the kids notice...or care...  :o)

For the rest of the week, we have a TV character day, decades day (I get stuck with the 70s), wacky tacky day, and colors day.  I have yet to decide what to wear, but I will post pictures for the other days.  Posting my school's uniform for today just felt like I'd be overstepping blogger boundaries.

So what do you say?  Any ideas for TV character day?
