Adolescent Nightmare

It had been a hot, sticky morning commute.

I was at my desk hoping to cool down before changing, but the library was warm and still...

don’t they turn on the AC in this place during the summer? is there a fan ANYWHERE?

My distress growing, I grabbed my bag and headed off to the nearest restroom

where I stripped off my cycling clothes, leaned on the door, and stared at the floor tiles

and smiled at the irony

of being in a junior high bathroom stall wearing nothing but flowered anklets and black shoes

and feeling relief.

-OB is this living the dream?

That picture is endlessly looping in my head now.

I can't wait til it is too hot again! Love the picture, we wear the same daggy commuting kit I see.

@Badger, the only pic is the one on the blog!

@HWB -- spike-heeled, shiny, dusty Diandora mtbs.

@Old Fool -- Kodachrome?

@Dee -- great uniform, huh?

Funny, I wear flowered anklets too!

I too have found it a strange feeling wearing only shoes, although I haven't experienced it in a school.

@Jeff, Vito -- now I have a visual!

@Rlove -- could be a little creepy if it weren't my workplace!
