Anyway, yesterday, I told Kate that I'd wear purple today. I know how much she loves the color, so I couldn't disappoint her, especially because she tells funny jokes. Originally, I planned to wear this sweater over my white lace dress with cute boots. However, I feared rain in the forecast, which NEVER happened, so I opted for boots I knew the weather wouldn't ruin. (I haven't worn the other boots in the rain, so I erred on the side of caution.) Oh well, I have an outfit for another day now.
By some magical feat, my co-teacher and I managed to run debates in our sophomore classes and finish grading three class sets of essays/outlines before grades needed to be posted by 2:30. Fairy dust skitters through our veins. Speaking of magic, our last class of sophomores pulled a rabbit out of their debate hat today and brought in a guest speaker (another teacher during his planning period) to serve as one of the supports to their argument. Unexpectedly awesome.
One of my male students said today, "You look really pretty in that dress, Ms. Wo." It melted my heart so much that I couldn't bear to tell him it's a maxi skirt, not a dress. Who cares? He was being sweet and genuine and who's not going to accept that sort of kindness from a teenage boy?
I don't love the outfit, but I wore purple for like the third time ever, which has to count for something. Better luck next wear?

BEST PART OF MY ENTIRE DAY? THIS SHIRT CAME IN THE MAIL!
Momma Janet, who lives in California, sent this shirt to me in the mail.
It goes quite nicely with my "Good grammar is sexy" shirt.
I might start collecting nerdy tees.
Don't judge me.
(Note: all women who are approximately my mom's age and whom I love dearly receive the word "momma" before their names.)
