It was really bizarre leaving the house at 6:30am this morning as H prepared to leave fifteen minutes later headed in the opposite direction. Usually I am the one standing at the door, handing him coffee and lunch, then kissing him bye for the day. 

I had time to write two blog posts in my head as I drove to WHS – a place I don’t really want to be, but that’s another story – to pin hems in ROTC uniforms for the Colonel.

After pinning one class, I have 2nd period free. In the old days I would go bide my time in the band room in H’s office. I may not be very welcome over there now and anyway, why would I want to present myself in that fashion? 

I had the Colonel open the side door for me when I arrived so I wouldn’t have to go through the office to check in with those people who did not fight for their band director in July. Technically, I’m in here illegally. Oh well. I guess you could say I’m in hiding. 

I’ve  been altering these uniforms for six years now and they pay me a nice amount of cash to do it which gave me incentive to not hesitate with a yes when asked. Sometimes we have to do what we have to do…

Five more periods to go. Then on to SWHS to fit H’s colorguard uniforms.

  1. Having to slip in incognito, Elle, had me imagining you in sunglasses a cap and wearing a trench coat. Still, like you said, we do what we have to do. You guys hang in there. :O)

  2. Never mind … time to hum a song song, maybe? “Have you seen your mother baby” No that’s too weird … oh well maybe some …?
