Tamar’s story about her 3rd grade interview reminded me of the first day of kindergarten.
Some parents had sent their 5-year-old to school wearing pants. I think it was actually some kind of romper thing. Rather than send the kid home with a note in her backpack, the school called the parents, hauled them down in middle of the day, and had them change their daughter into a skirt right outside the classroom.
Because, you know, Hashem has a zero-tolerance policy for 5-year-olds in baggy trousers.
