It’s Labor Day, and you know what that means. No, not the day when we ruminate about the days when people got killed fighting for crazy things like fair wages and workplace safety standards. It’s the day we get to reinvent our wardrobes. Tomorrow is the first day of school. If you show up on the first day of school dressed punk even though you dressed preppy last year, it’s no big deal. That’s who you are now. But you can’t show up on the second day of school dressed punk if you dressed preppy on the first day of school.
Wait a minute. What am I talking about? PUNK IS ABOUT BREAKING ALL THE RULES. ALL! THE! RULES! You don’t do what normal people do! Because you just don’t care! I am GOING TO USE ALL CAPS AND ALSO EXCLAMATION POINTS BECAUSE A TEACHER TOLD ME ONCE THAT YOU SHOULD ONLY USE THREE EXCLAMATION POINTS A YEAR BUT I JUST DON’T CARE. ! So yeah. Dress preppy tomorrow. And then punk the next day. BREAK THE RULES AND DON’T CARE. That’s who you are now.
