This happens about 7 times a year.
I go someplace.
Grocery store. Restaurant. Gas station. Movie theater. Post Office. Tattoo Parlor.
You get the picture.
I’m someplace other than school.
As an added bonus, I’m wearing something other than a suit and tie.
Here’s what happens.
I walk in. I see student. Student sees me.
Student looks at me funny. This is a telltale sign. Especially when they rotate their head to the side.
They look like a dog who hears a high-pitched whistle.
Student says one of two things.
"I thought you lived at school"
"You wear jeans?"
Actually, this is a lie.
Sometimes they say both.
It’s priceless when I see the shock and horror all over their face.
But sadly, of all the things they should be learning during their school years… the one thing that probably sticks with them the longest is their Superintendent looks weird and out of place in Levi’s.
