TP Returns

Some of you may remember a previous post regarding toilet paper. :) Today, I brought one of my patients back to my chair and quickly felt a sense of déjà vu. No, there was no toilet paper today just a lot of rapping and dancing when I wasn’t directly speaking to her.

I will call her the orange goddess. Girls, orange must be the new pink! She was decked out in this bright color. Her shirt was orange, orange stripe on her pants, orange tennis shoes, nail polish that was orange, her purse, and finally the doll that was hanging off her purse. Never have I seen so much orange. It was a bit frightening. Where do you even find orange nail polish? It should definitely be outlawed.

To top off this exciting, colorful afternoon, the dentist was doing an exam when her cell phone started to ring (the ring tone must have been set on high…it was very loud!). She proceeded to answer it very loudly. She sat up and had a non-emergency phone conversation at high decibels for at least 10 minutes…no exaggeration. The doctor just looked at her and then went on to another room. Finally, she hung up (only after I had the details of pictures, CVS, etc.). I suggested/requested that she turn off the phone so the exam could be completed. She refused and assured me her sister would not be calling right now!!!

I read about orange goddess TP in class today in my paper and I totally started laughing. Everytime I think about it, I get this image and I want to laugh. Hurrary for people like the orange goddess.

Hey orange is not a weird color! It's one of my school colors, so in college I had orange nail polish, orange hair glitter, orange hair ribbons, a tiger ear headband, orange clothes, and fake tiger tattoos for applying to the face before games. Princeton may stink at sports (except basketball and lacrosse and water polo and crew) but it rocks at school spirit. Hurrah for orange!

I didn't know Princeton was orange, but when I heard about it, I suggested that perhaps she was a Dutch (speedskating, etc.) fan -- they dress in solid orange, too. But Alaina didn't think that had anything to do with it :)

okay so yes some people take orange to the extreme, but orange is a very good color... judge the whole color by one person over doing it! :)

Well, I certainly meant no attack on the actual color...I have an orange shirt that I really like. I just think it was more than I've ever seen in one place (I've never been to a Princeton game). :) Catherine, did you really have orange nail polish?

Catherine said...

YES! Garish, perhaps, in another setting, but entirely appropriate in a school spirit sense I assure you!
