One of the perks of attending a Catholic school is that our children are required to wear uniforms (no fights about clothing on school days) and they are not allowed to wear make-up or fingernail polish. Now, I have visited the junior high enough to know there are many students "stretching" that rule. Obviously, the stretching went too far, and the students had to be reeled in a bit.
I'm sure . . . or at least HOPE . . . she was a little more delicate in her phraseology). My daughter thought she was calling them clowns. Thank goodness for our naive oldest! Never fear--her friends informed her what it means if you are standing on a street corner. I am glad you only have to live through junior high once!
