I have conjured a, frankly perfect equation to describe the horrors of yesterday. Well actually, it was heaven mixed in horror. Here is the equation…
One Absent Minded person + One idiotic person (One Second Language Book + One Second Language Exam) + One focused driver – Anyone sensible + another Second language book + Another second language exam + One Uniform – One overcoat = HELP (Heaven)
Our school uniform is, without sugarcoating, BAD. It looks bad and it’s sweaty! It was fine last year. I mean it was uncomfy but decent to look at (unfortunately I firmly believe in ‘feel good; look good’ so I hated it with every fibre of my being).
They changed the uniforms for this year owing to the inconvenience the dupatta (shawl kinda) caused some students while running. I thought they would be sensible and change it to T-shirt and track pants which is a) convenient and b) doesn’t happen to make you look like a bog monster.
No, they change the dupatta to an overcoat (and now I look like a bog monster!)
*series of livid and bewildered gestures*
Anyway, yesterday was my second language exam. I was revising the morning so I left the house WITHOUT my overcoat!
I said bye to my father and travelled in the car with BOTH my mom AND Sadhu and not ONE of them bothered to tell me.
Sadhu told me after we reached school and my mom left.
When I asked her why the heck she hadn’t told me in the car, she said she assumed it was in the wash as nobody could be idiotic enough to remember their ID card and forget their overcoat.
BOTH the teachers who came for invigilation asked me what happened to it. I had to tell them I forgot. Adu, like an idiot, wouldn’t stop laughing.
Although I was humiliated, there was a silver lining…
It was SO comfortable and in MY opinion, DIDN’T make me look like a bog monster (idk what anyone else thought but y’know, my whole ‘feel good; look good’ thing)
So if any of my teachers or principal is reading this, I beseech you to change the uniform into track pants and T-shirt. Just, NO pinafore, NO skirt and if there is a salwar NO overcoat or Dupatta.
Also, remind me never to rely on my mom or Sadhvi to tell me anything.
If any of you have ever been this scatter brained, write it in the comments. I could use some knowing that I am not the only one who does stuff like this🙂
