You get invited to read to a bunch of students at a private school in Oakton to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America day.
So, tomorrow I'll be the guest reader at a primarily-Turkish-student-body school. Information that is only relevant in that I get a Turkish tea and Turkish snack break between reading Dr. Seuss books to the lower and upper schools. All of that is awesome. It's the invitation to also participate in a Turkish bath that is making me somewhat uncomfortable...
(I'm kidding, of course. I'm perfectly comfortable with that.)
It is also school spirit week at this institution and the day I'm visiting is dress-in-all-the-same-color day. As the cheery-and-not-at-all-moody-person-I-am, I'm going with head-to-toe black, which will be worn with the red and white striped hat the School Director is providing for me.
To recap: Tomorrow, I'll be reading childrens books and enjoying Turkish delight while dressed as the cat in the hat.
Life is weird.
“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.” ― Dr. Seuss
