I wore this to my first day as a student teacher. I was wearing boots as well, which you can’t see in the picture. One student said, “Miss, I love your boots! Are they Docs?” In my head I cried as I responded, “No … I can’t afford them.” She stared at me and then walked away. Waahh. But on the plus side I bought the boots from Primark about a year ago for £19 and they remain my favourite and most-worm shoes to this day.
I feel this story would be a lot funnier if you could actually see the shoes I’m talking about. Oh well. Imagination, etc.
[edit: lolololol just realised I wrote “most-worm shoes”. I’m keeping it in as a reminder of how clever I am.]
