Girl: "What size do you think you'll be? Small?"
*What I Thought (WIT)* "Small? Honey...I have hips and a bum. You're cute, but don't patronize me. I know you get your scrub pants in the children's section."

Girl: "Oh, okay" *hands me hideous pair of flared scrubs*
Me: *tries them on...realize I'm between sizes or something because they are a tad too big and have HUGE flared bottoms*
WIT: "I feel like John Travolta ready to disco in these things..."
WIS: "I feel like John Travolta ready to disco in these things..."
At the end of the day...I bought them. I need some for now and until I have time to get some new ones, at least these aren't floods.
And...I'm ready to boogie at any given moment.
Can you dig it?? ;)
