Heavy traffic, crowded sidewalks, and people in a rush—it’s the normal scene on a regular Monday morning at Jefferson Street, the central business area of Redwood City. Jefferson Street is known for containing a number of well-known business offices, first class restaurants, high-end shops, and the finest high school in the city—Redwood High.
“Felicity, why are you wearing that type of outfit in this kind of weather?” Athena curiously brought up, breaking the silence among Athena, Sabrina, and I as we walked side-by-side towards our school—fighting through the thick crowd in the process.
“Sun Dress Monday, it’s this thing we talked about in science club,” I explained after glancing at Athena, who was at my left side. “All the female members of the club are directed to wear sun dresses on Mondays so as to the other students of the school wouldn’t think that we’re just some nerds with no fashion sense.”
I sighed in frustration after my statement, only because I see the whole “Sun Dress Monday” scheme of the science club as nothing but pointless and worthless. I may appear to be pleased and favorable about this matter but actually, it’s completely the opposite.
Who cares what the other students might think? At least we stick to who we really are. And moreover, what’s the point of choosing to wear sun dresses? They’re quite uncomfortable and unfitting for some weather conditions—a great example would be the weather for today.
Nevertheless, I still have to comply. I don’t have any significant positions in science club. I’m just a plain old member of it. So, if I don’t show my support for their decisions and projects, there’s a large possibility that they would kick me out of the club, causing me to lose all of the only extracurricular points I have—not the best scenario for a girl who still needs to get more points.
“Well, isn’t that quite ironic,” Sabrina, who was at my right side, pointed out with a laugh. “Isn’t the very own president of your club, Erma Bryant, really just a nerd with no fashion sense? I mean, she wore neon green pajamas to school once.”
A loud laugh escaped Athena’s lips, as well as mine, from hearing Sabrina’s statement but I quickly tried to shake it off afterwards, remembering the dream I had last Saturday.
Despite the fact that what Sabrina has remarked about Erma having no fashion sense was completely true and that I always had a competitive dislike on Erma—primarily because she’s my nearest competition for the top spot of the class—which were all sufficient reasons for me to continue laughing, I still had some modesty to know it’s not good to talk about others behind their backs.
“Anyway,” I uttered after giving Sabrina a look that hinted her that we shouldn’t be teasing Erma. “The weather forecast said that it would be warm and sunny today, then why is it so cold and windy?”
“For your information, that stuff isn’t always accurate. Don’t waste your time listening to it,” Athena declared, rubbing her hands over the sleeves of her gray hooded sweatshirt—obviously just to tease me for wearing such improper clothes for the current weather.
