Back to School
OK, I'll back up for those that don't know the back story. I got a call last week from the cosmetology school telling me that I could start school this September, and not have to wait until March. I basically freaked out on the Admissions gal, telling her that she never called me at "the end of the week" like she said she was going to. And that was a month ago. How do you call someone out of the blue and tell them they are starting school in one week? I weighed the Pro's and Con's (freaked out and told everyone that would listen that I was confused and they all told me to go for it), and decided to go. I didn't want to miss the opportunity. Tomorrow is my first day. I'm not sure what to expect or if I'm supposed to wear my black scrubs on the first day. What to wear on my first day of school? This isn't the first time I've asked this question.
I was super excited for my first day of school. First grade, was it? I carefully selected the perfect outfit. I'm a bit obsessive, so I laid the clothing on my bed. I'm a bit obsessive, so I decided to put the underwear inside the pants, the socks in the legs, and the shoes on the floor. "It's like an outfit!" I said. So proud of that outfit.
My sister and I got ready for school, and headed off on foot with Mom. We got around the block when I started to feel something odd in my pants. We kept walking, but that feeling didn't go away. I finally shook the stored underwear that was tucked inside my pants from the night before out of my pant leg. I had completely forgotten that I had put them inside my pants, and had put on another pair. I told my mom what had happened. We turned around to see them about 5 feet on the sidewalk behind us. Also behind us, were two women, walking toward the school. My mom did what she does best. Delegates. She basically forced my sister to go back and get my underwear, and the two women behind us saw the whole thing. Mary Jane was mortified and mad. Of course my mom did what any mom would do in this situation. She put them in her purse and acted like nothing had happened.
I haven't been in school since 1996. I think I'm going to vomit. Everyone is really excited for me to practice facials on them. But don't worry. I'll let you all know when Bikini Waxing 101 starts. One at time, please....one at a time.
