So I'm in microbiology this semester and we're required to have our own lab coat. Apparently this is what Project Runway thinks I should be wearing.
This is NOT what I got. I purchased your run-of-the-mill white lab coat. Men's M. Knee length. I'm 5'5", $1.30; needless to say it's too big. I know how to sew so I figured I'd just whack off the bottom and sleeves and toss in a hem. Done.
The scene: My kitchen. Me in the lab coat trying to figure out where to hem the darn thing. 12-year-old son at the table. Husband at the sink.
Son: Why are you wearing a lab coat?
Me: (opens mouth to answer but is cut off by husband)
Husband: Cuz Mom's gonna make meth. You go to school and tell everyone that.
Son: What? Oh ok.
Great. Anxiously awaiting a call. Any minute now.
