In our town, the little guys and gals are off to school this morning. Fellas and girls alike are affecting the latest sartorial "styles." I remember when my children were tots the challenge of getting them togged for the beginning of a new school year. Naturally we wanted our children to be appropriately clad for the occasion, but the challenge came in the attempt to garner sufficient resources. We managed.
Yet remembering much farther back in time I recall my own venture forth into the new thing called "school." I faced it with much trepidation, fears soon warranted, but the one thing I was excited about was that when school started I would get to wear long pants! No more stupid short pants that screamed "little kid."
Today, seven plus decades later, I am observing the styles. The boys are looking thus:
And I still would not be caught dead in such attire. (But they are emulating their daddies.)
