What I Like


I like to wear odd-patterned socks:

a stripe, a check or swirls.

I like to wear my hair up high

with lots of frizz and curls.

I like to paint my toenails

red, blue, pink and green.

I like to wear gigantic shades,

the biggest you have seen!

I like long scarves, I like big boots

I like badges: one, two, three!

I like a hat: tall or flat cap,

I just like being me!
