Why Daddy is not Allowed to Dress Athena
Actually, though, today Athena’s school is something called "Clash Day," in which all the children are encouraged to dress in clashing clothes. Also, the school intercom is playing selections from Sandinista! all day long. Okay, not so much with that last part. But the first part of that statement is certainly true. So she’s supposed to dressed this way, honest.
Be that as it may, I can’t say I was entirely pleased to overhear the following conversation yesterday:
Athena: Tomorrow is clash Day at school. We’re supposed to wear clothes that don’t match.
Krissy: We’ll have daddy dress you, then, sweetheart.
Look, I understand my role is to be the befuddled sitcom dad. But that’s not to say I don’t have style.
Oh, shut up. I do.
