Why are young girls so “Skanky?”
Then I realized it was three o’clock and the high school had just let out.
Platform shoes? In high school?
I’ve realized two things in the five years that we’ve lived in this city.
One: our high school needs a dress code.
Two: I’m old. Oh yes, I freely admit it. When I was in high school we wore flip flops or sneakers. Once in a while, maybe a pair of flats that pinched my toes. I was no slave to fashion back in those days. We had a VERY. STRICT. DRESS CODE. We also had an over zealous assistant principal that walked around with a ruler to measure whether or not your skirts or shorts were indeed no more than three inches from the tops of your knees.
A few months ago the hubs and I had the privilege of waiting in front of that same cross walk as the students broke for lunch. A girl wandered out in knee high boots and the shortest denim shorts imaginable. Her cropped tee shirt bared a wide expanse of belly and she just looked…naked.
“I cannot believe her mother let her leave the house like this!” I fumed. “How does she sit in a desk without showing off her *_____?” Seriously. The shorts were that short.
“I cannot believe that any guy in her class learns anything with her in the room” he commented. “Seriously. You can practically see her *______”.
Mothers…don’t let your babies wear tramp clothes to high school.
I hate to admit it…but maybe old Ms. *C from my high school was on a mission for the greater good. More young ladies kept their dignity and more boys went on to college.
