Puberty, pimples, periods, armpit hair, etc. Walking into the classroom Friday, a student flung her arms around me and started crying; or at least I thought she was crying. Concerned, I asked, “What on earth is wrong?” At this point she looked up, smiling, and bellowed, “We are learning about the birds and the bees in science, and it is soooooo scary!” I strived to look just as disgusted as she did! A teacher wears many hats!

Well, I finally get to mark something off my bucket list; not because it actually came about, but because it is no longer a possibility! “What Not to Wear”…….yep, I always wanted to be on this television show. Unfortunately, it has been cancelled.
I actually tried to convince a friend of mine to recommend me for the show. I envisioned myself putting on my worst outfit or pajamas and heading to Wal-Mart for my photo op. I even pondered dressing like Honey Boo Boo’s mom or a slightly hookerish look. Walking into Wal-Mart, my girlfriend, Beverly, would have been filming me (wink wink) in my horrible outfit. I would have even been willing to don a pair of “mom jeans” with a fanny pack if I thought it would have helped me make the show.
When I asked Beverly if she would recommend me for the show and tell the produces that she was fed up with my style, or lack thereof, her response was, “Noooooooooooooo, because I want to go on that show too!” Now if you open up your dictionary and look up “stylish” or “rocking that outfit”, I bet you will find a picture of Beverly. I guess Stacy and Clinton will not be popping out of a crowd any time soon to offer me my trip to NY with the $5,000 gift card!
