538. But Why?

I quit my job. The New Top-Secret Job where I got to wear scrubs every day. I know, I know, it's terrible, I only worked there for about five and a half seconds (and my boss was super-duper gracious and nice and even said congratulations when I gave her my official two-weeks' notice, which just made it worse). 

But.

I got a new job. This one is also Top-Secret, and happens to be Better-Paying. Alas, I am not permitted to wear scrubs.

Craig’s List: Three sets of aqua-colored scrubs (size large). Barely used. Cheap. Contact MOV.

If no one calls, I am thinking they would make very nice pillow covers?

  1. Congratulations! and I would imagine scrubs would be approprite attire for, like, everything? Carving pumpkins, popping zits, practicing karate. Any activity that requires you to possess an air of relaxed professionalism.

  2. thanks, Kelly! and if you see a mom (asleep) lying in the grass in the middle of the park wearing scrubs, rest assured, it is me. (yes, scrubs are good for napping!).

  3. Didn't I read in Wikipedia that they were good for backpacking?
    Congratulations on your new more profitable job. Up the ladder you go!

  4. Congrats MOV! I worked in a lab many years ago - I kept my scrubs and wore them on lazy days and sometimes as pajamas. I think you will find them more comfortable that yoga pants even! :o)

  5. But if being a hospital receptionist was SO secretive, then what are you doing now???

  6. But scrubs must be awesome comfort wear? Maybe keep a pair for post Thanksgiving dinner? Congrats on a better paying gig!

  7. Véronique, I think they WOULD be good for backpacking (not that I backpack, but now that I have the correct attire, maybe I will start!).

    Jennie, Thanks! I think I will probably wear my scrubs more than I did when I had the Top-Secret Job! I can wear them to answer the door when the UPS guy drops off my latest online Amazon order. I can say, "Oh, you know, I am on call. The hospital might call me at any moment, so I want to be ready," as I eat my second bowl of mint-chip ice-cream.

    Motaki, I was not a hospital receptionist. So there. See, it really is a secret. =)

    Meg, I like the Thanksgiving dinner idea. On second thought, maybe this will be my new travel attire? They are super-duper comfy.

  8. MOV, what if you donated your very gently used scrubs for volunteers at your local animal shelter?

    Good luck with your new top secret job! You live such an intriguing life.

  9. Kay,

    I love this idea. However, I am not sure my scrubs would fit the animals, unless it was a Great Dane. (I am a size large.) Thank you for you input, I will definitely keep it in mind.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
