CAHSEE day. Ms. B was in charge.
I was doing my normal walk of the room when I spotted her. She was a normal teenage girl in normal teenage attire. She was wearing a pair of sandals with socks underneath. Pink socks. With an interesting leaf design...
High school dress codes can be a bit over-the-top. Banning spaghetti straps, for instance. Or the ban on non-natural hair colors. And of course there's frayed or oversized clothing. (That one is because of its association with gangs.)
But there are certain things in the dress code that make sense. Like banning drug images. Marijuana leaves? That shouldn't even be a question.
Especially when one is going to be in a room with the strictest assistant principal at the school. I mean, come on! Did the girl really think Ms. B wasn't going to notice?
Ms. B let the girl finish her test, and then as soon as she was ready to leave, Ms. B pounced.
I'm sorry, but she had it coming. I guess she wanted to push the boundaries. And the boundaries pushed back.
