Lindsay Lastinger Ms. Carver Log Entry: The Handmaid’s Tale 26 August 2010 “Special Garb Day” On the day of which I was expected to wear the “special garb”, I drove to school with a sick feeling plaguing my stomach. I could feel the embarrassment creeping up on me as I tried to imagine myself with a white cloth wrapping my head—one which would conceal the hair that I had styled so meticulously earlier that morning. Upon arriving at school, I delayed my entrance into Ms. Carver’s room for as long as possible. However, at exactly 7:52 a.m., eight minutes before my Pre-calculus class, I decided that the embarrassment could not be postponed for any longer. Thus, I reluctantly made the walk to Ms. Carver’s room. Once in the classroom, I watched as Ms. Carver carefully clipped the head garb into place. The sick feeling in my stomach became worse, and the embarrassment that I could feel coming on was almost more than I could bear. Soon my face was as red as the red shirt that I had been assigned to wear for the day. At 7:59 a.m. I walked into the school halls. Immediately, I could feel hundreds of wondering eyes shoot upon me. I heard snickering from all directions. At that point, the “special garb day” had officially begun. I knew that I was in for a truly unforgettable experience.
