What I Like

Listen to Attie ...
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!
