I was actually a little surprised that she considered my "green" sweater, the one I had been wearing for "Spirit Fridays" for months NOT to be green; but, recognizing my own color and fashion limitations, I smiled and listened.
"And you know spring starts next Monday?" she continued, "so, no more boots!" she said pointing to my (I thought) fashionable boots! "Unless you are wearing Uggs," she said (and of course I do not have Uggs).
So I guess I have my walking papers from a second grader on this Spirit Friday, St. Patrick's Day, and the last school-day of winter. Even if huge snow piles fill the parking lot and is too cold for outdoor recess, I'm going to need to get a new, real green, top and put away the boots if I want to be fashion-forward for the group that wears bouncing shamrocks in their hair!
