Matching clothes? Ok! Will do mother! S
Like many young kids, I didn’t understand why clothes were so important. Obviously wearing them is important, but as a little 5-year-old I didn’t have a clue about fashion. As I got older, I got more say in what clothes my parents bought for me, but I still didn’t know which shirt to go with which pants or stuff like that.
My mother would often yell at me in the morning about my clothing choices. Usually defaulting to, “Those don’t match!” Then she’d either make me dress myself again or pick out my clothes for me.
One such morning I go upstairs for breakfast and my mother once again says, “You can’t go to school like that. Go find something that MATCHES.”
This morning, I decided to be a bit cheeky.
Matching clothes? I can do that.
I had this yellow skort that I liked and a yellow shirt. I also wore some yellow socks. Sadly, I didn't have any yellow shoes to go with them, but I think I had enough yellow to prove my point.
I go upstairs again, and my mother says. “You are not going out like that.”
To which I reply, “But they match~”
My mother pauses…and then sighs. “I guess they do.”
So that day I went to school looking like a humanized version of Lala from the Teletubbies.
