Designer clothes let people know if you are good or bad

So sayeth one of my students. We were practicing brainstorming and the topic was “clothes”. Most of the other students came up with: you can express your personality, you are protected from the weather, etc.

This was par for the course from this particular student. He can endlessly discuss the cost of latest acquisitions. (“My phone cost $900!”) Pretty much every class, I want to look at him and say, “We’ve got it– your parents are willing to waste insane amounts of money.”)

Of course, as a teacher, I love all my students equally. 😉
