The Short Kid’s school does this fun thing toward the end of the Friday school day. Different activities and whatnot that enable the kids to mingle with kids in other classes. And, this year, they have themes. Last Friday’s was “Show Your Sports Spirit”. No problem. All I had to do was make sure his Patriots jersey was in the clean laundry basket, not the dirty laundry basket.
Today? The 1980s. WHAT?
I don’t happen to have any boys-size-12 acid-washed jeans or Hammer pants laying around. Really, I have a hard enough time with Halloween and that’s one day a year. If they’re going to start playing dress-up at school every Friday, I’m going to spend much of the school year banging my head against the wall.
But a pair of shades, a lot of mousse, and a flipped-up collar later we had a somewhat eightyfied short kid.
