Today, I surprised my students with doughnuts.
Today, I surprised myself by treating myself to a fancy coffee for no good reason. And I wore cowboy boots with yellow tights that in no way matched my camel colored corduroy skirt. Apparently, this counts as hipster.
And I ate a doughnut during my office hours as I talked with three wonderful students. I haven’t eaten a doughnut in a year.
The whole day has been out of the ordinary–right down to my tights– and, as an older Southern lady might say, “It’s cattywampus.”
Cattywampus: not centered, out-of-sorts, a little chaotic.
I think that for someone like me, a little cattywampus is a good thing. Too much order can stifle. Living with flair means you delight in a little chaos, a little break in routine, and a little out-of-the-ordinary.
So here’s to a cattywampus Wednesday!
Did you surprise yourself today?
