Today, I was wearing a floor length skirt. There's this fantastic girl in my 3rd grade class who is Egyptian, and wears a hijab and a long skirt everyday. There are a few other Muslim kids, but most of the girls don't dress like that. She is the only one in her class who wears it every day.
Girl:I like your skirt!
Girl:I'm surprised that you are wearing a long skirt.
Girl:Because you are cool. And long skirts are weird. The other kids call me weird for wearing a long skirt every day.
Me:I don't think long skirts are weird. I think they are cool. And pretty. And fancy.
Girl:(turns to the class and yells) EVERYBODY! I'M NOT WEIRD, I'M FANCY!
