Dorothy wore a pair of no-show ankle socks today. When she got home today, she was quite distressed.
“Mom! Everybody thought I didn’t have on socks today!”
“Really? Why do other kids care about your sock status?”
“I don’t know, but I was sooooo embarassed.”
“Dorothy, you have socks on. Why didn’t you just show them?”
“I don’t know, but I’m never, EVER wearing these again.”
Now, I’m sure I had my fair share of dramaz when I was 7, but oh my goodness. I would have never suspected that the lack of visible socks would be so tragic in a first grader’s life.
