The Two Signs:
1. Yesterday was See You at the Pole, and this is the first year I have been far enough removed from high school/high schoolers to not have known it was coming! I saw a group around a flagpole at a school on my way to work and figured that must be it. Clearly I am an old fogie for not being in touch with the high school calendar of events anymore.
2. More importantly, I have observed that Nike shorts and a t-shirt are no longer viable attire unless I am actually at the gym. Throughout college, I always joked that no one who knew me solely via evening activities ever saw me in "real" clothes because I always changed immediately upon returning to my dorm after class. Now, however, even if I go to the gym before my evening Bible study, I feel like I have to put back on at least jeans with my t-shirt, or else I might give away the fact that I am only just separated from my college roots.
Stacey and Clinton would approve of these baby steps. But man do I miss those Nike shorts.
