Kindergarden Socks and an Alternative Career

I have a pair of socks that A told me the other day he really like because they look a bit childish. Or playful perhaps. I don’t remember the exact formulation, but for some reason it reminded me of what one of the girls in my class, Annika M-S, told me my first year in high school. She said that she thought I was so playful and cheery that I would be perfect as a kindergarden teacher. Being a kindergarden teacher is of course a really nice job, but at the time, I really wanted to pursue a career in something arty like being a stage performer or working in film, so I wasn’t very happy about the comment. Now, 20 years later,  I can only observe that neither of us were right and that my career took a completely different turn.

I really like the socks though!
