Every girl crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed slob
The start date for student teaching at Brown Elementary is Tuesday. I went to the ISD Administration and got my photo ID. Then I went to the Gap and Target and bought two dress shirts and two pairs of slacks. I now own 12 decent to classy long-sleeved dress shirts and seven pairs of pants that are not jeans. (Despite what others have said about how male teachers dress, Ms. L told me when I visited that there was no need for a tie. That's good. I own, I believe, one tie.) I may need to buy more dress shirts before the term is over; my shirt-alternating pattern will doubtlessly be quickly discerned by the sartorially adept gazes of the women folk, and that would be just awkward and embarrassing.
