Sudafed Head!

The most embarrassing thing happened to me today. I am going to blame it all on Sudafed. I have had a cold all week, so I've been maxed out on the Sudafed (the good stuff)! Anyway, it's Thursday morning and I have a huge class to teach at work today. We do what's called our bi-annual inservice fair. This an opportunity for me to give all of our staff and management updates on new policies, any changes in practice, and educate them on new procedures. We also do all of our emergency drills (i.e. fire, cardiac arrest, stolen baby, out-of-control patient, etc...). It's an all day event! So, you know, I want to look cute (if scrubs can be cute) since all the staff is going to be there. I go to my closet, pick out some black scrub pants, a scrub top that is white with black, lime green, and pink polka dots, and put a pink/green striped long sleeve shirt on underneath. I got my matching accessories and out the door I flew (@ 6:00 EST). I set my laptop and projector up, talk to some staff and get the day started. Everything goes off without a hitch. People payed attention, we all learned some new stuff, I think the day has ended well, and I am feeling pretty proud of myself. Apparently, I should've done a how to dress yourself drill, because when I get home @ 5:30 and go to change clothes I notice my pants are on backwards! Yep, been that way ALL DAY! How did I not notice this? Why did someone not tell me? I mean the butt pockets were obviously in the front and the cargo pockets in the back. I must have looked like a total idiot up there ranting about being responsible for yourself and your patients. ARGGGGH! I am sure the people I was teaching were thinking that I couldn't even dress myself, how in the world am I gonna give CPR to someone? Oh well, maybe I should go in with my shirt backwards tomorrow and say I am starting a new trend. Or, maybe I should lay off the Sudafed! You guys are my friends, you would've told me, right? Seriously, if I ever have my dress stuck in my pantyhose, a booger, or anything of that nature, PLEASE tell me, and I will do the same for you! Peace, love, and clear heads to all!

When I worked at the bank, I worked half the day with my pants unzipped. I was so mad when I came out of the bathroom and asked the girls why they did not tell me..they said we didn't want you to think we were looking!! How kindergarten was that answer!! So yes, I am one of those friends that will tell you when you have something hanging out your nose or your clothes!!

Years ago when my sister (MaryAnn) worked in the Mall at a makeup counter, she gave me a facial and did my makeup, so when she was done I walked through the mall with my head held high cause hey...I look good. Little did I know the tissue she put on each side of my shirt was flapping in the wind as I walked. I'm pretty sure she may have done this on purpose cause she was laughing really hard by the time I got back.
