Wardrobe Dilemma

  • Subbing in 6th Grade.
  • on a Friday.
  • The week before school gets out.

You make the call:

This?


Or this?



Yeah, that's what I thought, too.

Gah - 6th graders at the end of the school year. You'd better opt for the second one.

Yvonne said...

Probably the second ; )

Good luck.

TONYA said...

Definitely the 2nd one. Oh my I did student teaching for 2 weeks for a 6th grade class. It seriously put me off teaching for life :)

kristen said...

The first one is quite classy, but it looks like the second one might come equipped with firearms and grenades--which is just an added bonus. Where can I get me one of those?!

FluffyChicky said...

You need the riot gear over the top of a hazmat suit. Sixth graders are nasty. :)

Stacey said...

I would go with the second one but add a few more modifications.

Amy Peterson said...

The second one is my choice, but maybe with a nice pair of earrings, we don't want to scare the kids =)

Kimberly said...

Oh no! Our poor Randi!

Melissa said...

Oooohhhh 6th grade... ouch. Such a fun time... let us know if you survive!

Heather said...

Oh man, 6th isn't that bad is it??

Perhaps an Indiana Jones ensemble in honor of the movie opening--of course complete with whip.

NG said...

I'd say dress like A... but bring about 20 others dressed like B to stand behind you.

Good luck!

Lauren said...

Hmm....tough decision.

Lucy said...

I've wished many times that I had kept a journal of all those school years. The last week of every year was always a total washout.. and the 2nd picture is just what everybody needed.

Good Luck!

TheDillon6 said...

that was a rhetorical question, right?

Jill said...

You're teaching sixth grade the last week of school the Friday before school gets out?
Are you crazy?!?!?!?!

I hope they give you hazard pay.

The second one for sure. You may want to add a gas mask. (boys at that age tend to be rather flatulent)

Not even a close call.

Lynell said...

So funny! How'd the teacher get out of teaching the last week of school? Good luck to you for stepping up.

This is hillarious, and not. I begin most mornings lying in bed debating over this same question! (and I'm just dealing with my 3 little boys!) lol!

ganelle said...

Do they sell that in my size? I could really use that the last week of school with seniors!

Nancy Face said...

The second one...DUH.

Lippy said...

I was very concerned and wanted to see how much damage they did.

Did you go with the first outfit? That binder could be a great weapon :)

Merrianne & Spencer said...

I'd pick the 2nd one! :)

Cute post!

No Cool Story said...

Best of luck!
I'd get the "book camo" gear, that way you could blend-in in case of trouble.

Stephanette said...

I'm going to say dress like B....I hated and still (looking back) hate the sixth grade year. I hope it went well.

I'm baaaaaack. I'm sorry I was away for so long, but it was good for me. Hope to catch up soon.

Melzie said...

Hahahahahaa! It's in our papers, we can't be out of school the last week of school. Unless it's serious. But I would never, ever do it to someone. And I have high schoolers. We still have 7 days... and the Sr's are offically done as of 2 this afternoon!

Wear PANTS. 6th graders won't take your butt-kicking threats seriously if you show up in a skirt and heels.

TheSpeedingApple said...

Second.
