Though it’s late in coming, I was finally able to get my hands on all the paparazzi photos from Spirit Week. The days, if you recall, included the following:
“Teacher-Student Swap” Day
Apparently, several teachers and students alike were thrown off by this one. At least four people told me they saw this guy from a distance and thought it was me. Ha! I dressed like him too (it’s true), but since you’ve never seen him before, my outfit probably wouldn’t make much sense to you. Thus, I shall spare you the photo.
“Green” Day (not to be confused with the band)
Much to my chagrin, I found out later that this was actually Maid Marian’s costume from a previous theatre production. “Nonetheless,” my informant added, “you pull it off very nicely.” I’m still not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
And here are some other green people. I include this one simply because it reminds me of the traditional Sasquatch-on-the-run photo — and as such, brings me joy.
“Dress Like You’re Going to a Party” Day
In short, I was looking for any old excuse to teach with a sombrero. You’ll be happy to know I went to the post-office this way, too.
The paparazzi, I later discovered, were lurking in the shadows during my morning break.
