Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp-dressed man

For some reason possibly including alcohol, the school decided to have Spirit Week in the four days leading up to Christmas break. Today’s theme? Dress Like Your Teacher Day.

My family being the crazy way we are, pointed out to the Short Kid that it doesn’t say dress like “a” teacher, it says dress like “your” teacher. SK’s teacher is a Missus, which led the Tall Kid to embark upon a diabolical campaign to convince his younger brother he’d only get credit for having spirit if he dressed like a woman.

Fortunately, SK isn’t the dullest knife in the drawer and he found the loophole. His music teacher is a man and technically also his teacher, even if it’s a secondary subject.

SK likes to be comfortable, though, so the shirt’s untucked and the top button’s unbuttoned, which really works well with the clip-on tie. Hopefully Mr W won’t mind be portrayed as the music teacher who made one too many trips to the “special” punchbowl at the staff Christmas party.
