For some odd reason I felt like Pollyanna in this outfit today (though I'm sure Pollyanna never wore green socks). Perhaps it was the puffy shirt. Nonetheless, I was reminded of my dreaded bus ride to school in 6th grade. Way back then, somehow we had to sit three kids to a seat because the route was overcrowded. I can't imagine that ever being allowed to happen now. Can we say, "lawsuit"? Anyhow I was assigned to a seat with an 8th grade boy who was your typical meathead jock, and a snooty 6th grade girl who thought she was the bees knees. On a daily basis they would make fun of me and my nerdy self by telling me that I had to pay them if I wanted to sit in the seat with them, laughing relentlessly. I was too shy to stand up for myself or say anything mean or witty back so I would purposely miss the bus so my mom had to take me to school. Well...one day I actually had the cojones to tell the bus driver what was going on and (yay!!!) she moved my seat and reprimanded them. Haha. As I was walking to my new seat the 8th grade boy said aloud, "that's Pollyanna over there". Funny, I guess I didn't think it was much of an insult. I turned around, smiled and said, "So? I like Pollyanna".
Here's to an excessively cheerful and optimistic Monday darlings!
