It’s Homecoming Week at Highland Park High School, and posters have been put up that inform students what to wear on each day.
Today: “Prep Day (Country Club)” — The easy joke would be “How is this different from any other day?” But, based on my experience, that joke applies to another day. Keep reading.
Tuesday: — I can’t tell what kids are supposed to do tomorrow. Note to the creators of this poster: Orange type on a pink background is a horrible design strategy.
Wednesday: “Twin Day” — It cracks me up that this isn’t “Twins Day.” You can’t be a singular twin, can you?
Thursday: “Western Day” — The image of a cowboy boot helped me decipher that orange type.
Friday: “Spirit Day” — This is where the aforementioned joke applies. I interpret “Spirit Day” as a day to wear Scots merchandise. I lack the proper perspective, having attended a high school with no sports teams, but I’ve noticed that 75 percent of the kids I see while serving in the cafeteria are showing Scots spirit on a typical day. And I rarely see the same T-shirt twice. Makes you wonder how many different pieces of Scots merch get produced in a given year.
