Come on. We’ve talked about this.
Have we learned nothing over the course of 530 blog posts?
One more time, then you’re on your own.
If you are a school administrator, it is considered a social faux pas to wear a blue dress shirt before the first Monday in September.
Because it’s Labor Day.
Actually, Labor Day has nothing to do with it. Labor Day has to do with the deaths of factory workers (not a lot of laughs in this blog…).
My point is when school starts it’s hot.
Like surface of Venus hot (Google it).
It can be 42 degrees the day before school starts and I will guarantee you it will be 112 when the students show up.
In the shade.
It has to be, it’s the law (Google it).
Yet, every year some hotshot young principal shows up at school with his brand new blue dress shirt he just bought at Kohl’s (free plug… so feel free to send me some free stuff).
The shirts are fine.
The color is not.
You cannot stand up in front of several hundred students and preach to them about the consequences of their behavior over the course of the next 9 months and not sweat.
Trust me, I’ve tried.
Your back basically becomes a waterfall.
Which in turn makes your underwear droopy and your socks soggy.
Or so, I hear.
Now think what this does to your brand new precious Kohl’s blue dress shirt (seriously… two free plugs and I’ve got nothing).
So do what I do.
At least until Labor Day.
You’ll still sweat, but at least the rest of us won’t have to see it.
