Did I Show You This Already?

After over 600 posts, and I use labels so I can find them again, I still don't think I ever posted this picture. You can check the label at the bottom if you want to prove me wrong. And I think I speak for everyone when I say "Who doesn't want to do that?" I was sent home from the hospital last year in this jumpsuit. It was made of paper that was hefty baggish enough to look like clothes. From a dumpster.

For my next doctor's appointment I took the belt of my black robe and tied it around my outfit in an effort to look like a black belt who could kick ass. With one foot.

The doctor asked me what I was wearing. I replied that it was what I got at the hospital and was sturdy enough to go up and down stairs on my butt since I had no elevator.

"How long are you going to wear that?"
"I don't know, why?"
"Because it's just to wear home, most people change into real clothes later."
"Oh."
"How long have you been wearing it?"
"Ten days."

Everyone in the room laughed and the doctor insisted on taking a picture of me wearing my paper confection. Needless to say, I covered my face.

Suzy went to the hospital and paid $15,000 dollars and all she got was this lousy paper jumpsuit and an arch in ONE foot.

End of chat.

  3. Yeah it looks like a Gee and you are hilarious. At least it wasn't one of those gowns they give you at the Gyno's that wraps around and ties in the front or worse ties in the back.

    You have such an eye.

  12. You know you're a trend setter if the office staff was wearing the same ensemble the next time you went in.

    S,
    Are you hiding your face because you weren't wearing makeup? That would be the #1 reason. Who cares about the paper outfit?
    Aloha,

  19. wow! You actually made it look so stylish!!
    Yeah, what happened to your foot?

    ReplyDelete
  20. No SIR! You didn't really, did you? OMG - too funny.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Very very funny, and so well done that I believe you actually wore that.

    But with a stilletto on the good foot.

    By the way, I'm completely MIA. In case you can't tell.

    I know I still owe you a review on kindle. Just jump on my back with the other two monkeys...kay? ;)

    Oh shit. I emoticoned you. Now you're going to kick my ass. Again.

  22. I always knew you were a woman who knows that it is the accessories that really make an outfit. Without the belt you would look silly, but with it... now that's a whole different thing.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So, a black belt. That's pretty hard to obtain. Breaking boards, planks, records, a leg. . oh I didn't mean to go there.

    I thought when saw this picture you had left a karate class with an injury!

    So the throw-away jumpsuit! Never thought I'd live to see the day, GLAD would make disposable clothes!

    Great post!

  24. Wow! That is the best story. Painfully funny! Thanks for sharing, and ridiculing yourself so I could go to work with a little more skip in my step.

    Watch out though. This is how Hollywood fads are born. The paper Karate master look may be the next best thing.

  25. methinks suzy kicks ass... WITHOUT using her feet! ;) lol

  26. Ten days in the paper suit? I hope you took it off once in a while (did it fit over the cast, or should I not ask?) Maybe you can get a few cases of them and start a trend.

    ReplyDelete

  28. Oh, and I invited Ed's chinese sister over. She'll be here momentarily. Apparently she's busy SCOURING the bloggy universe leaving comments.........

    ReplyDelete
  29. I tried to comment from work but got caught, not by anyone important,but caught none the less.
    I distracted my co-worker by pointing out that we don't have paper jumpsuits, only gowns.
    I love the purse.
