Dickies and War

Here is my summer high school job story.
20130514_081942

 

 

In case you can’t read my handwriting:

 

I used to work @ Great America©.

 

It was the worst.

 

I served ice cream and popcorn and some other sugary delights.

 

Every day, I wore Dickies Pants (navy blue dress code… I think they might have been mens pants, too lol). Baggy, sturdy. Nice and comfy for when I battled ants with my sanitizer spray. (probz could’ve used some 5.11 gear)

The answer? FUN SCRUBSFun scrubs? What does that even mean? Well, according to a couple different studies, what you wear to work can affect not only who you work with (for you healthcare workers, that means your fellow staff and patients), but also yourself.

Let me explain by taking you on a visual tour of a wholeee newww woooorrrlllddd of my top 20 picks for super Fun Scrubs.

4. WonderWink 6716C Men’s Raglan Block Top

7. Dickies 84771C Women’s Missy Fit EDS Print V-Neck Scrub Top

 

Unrelated to scrubs, but relevant to adorable comics about an owl named Owly who just wants to be friends with everyone, here is a link to some free Owly comics that you can read while you’re on break.

10. Tooniforms 6885V Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top

 

Don’t be a square! Or be a square. Whatever you want, the choice is yours.

It may not be the best time to wear a striped sweater (even though we all know that’s all the time), but it sure is a good time to wear a Spongebob scrubs. *cue Spongebob laughter*

11. Tooniforms 6875C Women’s Flexibles Scrub Top

14. Tooniforms 6767CB Women’s Cotton Scoop Neck Scrub Top

 

I recently re-watched Disney’s Bambi and it was like the saddest thing ever (well, not quite as sad as Dumbo. That got too real), BUT the good part is that everyone only really remembers the fancy-free prancing of this growing deer and his animal friends. That’s sort of ideal experience though, isn’t it? Get through all the tough times, but come out remembering the best of those times. Spread that positive experience to your staff and patients with this Bambi scrub top.

18. Tooniforms 6546 Women’s V-Neck Scrub Top

 

I never watched a whole bunch of Hello Kitty as a child, but I saw a few episodes and they were… bizarrely calm? Well… anyway, Hello Kitty is a giant hit with people all over the world. She has become an icon for fashion, cute culture, individuality, and maybe stereotypes of Asian submissiveness (but there have been lots of rad movements to reverse this trend). So get that kawaii out of your eyes and start spreading the joy with these Hello Kitty scrubs.

20. Scrub HQ 4826C Women’s Mock Wrap Scrub Top

I bet you were curious to know what the last of the Top 20 Fun Scrubs would be (all fun scrub tops should be punintended). So here it is, a Curious George yellow scrub top. Everyone will go BANANAS when they see it.

Kids can be superheroes just like dad (or mom, just sayin’)!

Let’s be honest here. Good parents are basically superheroes (hopefully without the whole tragic past thing going on). And logic follows that superheroes are awesome and everyone wants to be one in one way or another, right?

 

So let me start out by reminding anyone who (god forbid) has forgotten that raising kids is hard work! First you have to go through the whole process of pregnancy, then birth, then there’s the sleepless nights, the safety-proofing, the diaper changing… and then they grow up a little more and you’ve got all the drama that comes with going to school, making friends, learning lessons, developing an identity… AND THEN there’s getting a job and/or going to college, figuring out a career, maintaining extracurricular activities and a social life. FINALLY, you get that sigh of relief when they leave the nest.  BUT WAIT! There’s potential for more! As a parent, you’re always going to be a role model, a go-to resource, family support… whether you’re fully present or not!

 

Jor-El and Kal-El: The ultimate father-son duo.

 

So maybe you’re raising a youngster right now. While they’re still youthful, imaginative, and more or less free from peer pressure to “grow up” (whatever that means), give them some fun things to reminisce about later on in life, such as:

I really have no words except for things like, “b’awwww” and “AWWWWWWAOIWAFIJAFDFADORABLE” for CAT Apparel’s kids’ clothing line. Like, seriously, they are SUPER adorable. And what better way to simultaneously make your kid feel proud of themselves AND proud of you, their heroic parent(s), than to give them a shirt with a detachable cape. Just saying, I really think CAT should start making these kinds of clothes for adults… I’d work it!

Anyway, check out these other super cute shirts and sets (whoever thought of sets is pretty much the best person ever because it’s just a one-stop-shop now. You don’t gotta spend time shopping and trying to figure out what pants matches what shirt, etc. It’s all there for you!).
