Index Card Notes
These flats remind me of studying for Earth Science tests in eighth grade. Our teacher, Mrs. Jansen, had a passion for weather systems and for mid-shin polyester skirts with diamonds on them. We were an all-girls school and would sit around in the hallways between classes eating candy and finishing Spanish homework. Every time Mrs. Jansen scurried by (she was definitely a scurrier), Arleen Katz (names have been changed to protect the guilty) would hold out a yellow highlighter and draw fluorescent lines across Mrs. Jansen's polyester hems. We were horrified but couldn't hold in the giggles. Without boys around, eighth grade girls find fun where they can.
Index Card Flats, $13 for a set of six and memories you didn't know you still had.
