I recently gave a slide presentation to the staff of the school where I work, highlighting interesting things that have been going on around campus. Uncharacteristically, the school’s executive director was absent from the gathering, because she was leading a cultivation tour in Japan. Unable to resist temptation, I found a pretty wild Japanese street fashion photograph online…
…and doctored the image so that our director and her husband appeared to have fully embraced Japanese street style on their trip. The picture got a big laugh from my coworkers, and when the couple eventually returned and saw it, they weren’t angry or embarrassed, but delighted.
In fact, they decided to pattern their costumes for the school’s 4th of July parade after the Japanese teenagers’ outfits.
