Just because I know you all have been dying to see my volunteer uniform, I took a picture. *Disclaimer: This picture was taken almost immediately after I got home from the hospital yesterday, so please take that into account.*
Ok, I guess I'll show you my badge, too.
Lovely, isn't it? I have to say, wearing the almost-scrub/smock shirt and badge does make me feel very official. (And apparently it looks official, too, because almost everyone is surprised when I tell them I'm a just a volunteer. I guess that part is printed pretty small on my badge...) My dad asked me the other day if they call us "grapes" because of our purple shirts--you know, instead of "candy-stripers" like hospital volunteers used to be. While that would be kind-of funny, I told him that the color is, in fact, eggplant (according to our handbook). So, I guess you guys can call me that from now on if you really want to...
P.S. After watching "The Little Mermaid" last night, Kailei and I agree that Prince Eric should have been higher on our list. We hope he'll forgive us.
