Have you heard that new song Thrift Store? When I first heard it on the radio, I thought it was another offering from DJ Dave (Whole Foods Parking Lot, Daddy Skills, Berkeley Enough, etc...). Though a little coarse in the language, it's such a fun take on the thrill of the hunt and the feeling you get when you nab something awesome. All of this to say -- you guys...
...I HAVE GREEN PANTS. Green corduroys, no less. They're a little more dark-limey-apple green than the true crayola they're showing up as in pictures...and they are rocking my world something awesome right now.
I've focused my clothing-acquisitions lately on "professional-able" things -- things that I like, would wear day-to-day, and can be presented as professional enough to pass muster in a white-coat-required clinical environment. I was out on Friday on a post-block-exams (7 tests in 5 days, gross!) shopping treat at my favorite thrift shop and grabbed these AMAZE-BALLS oh! so! very! green! pants "just to try on." Once on -- oh, man! I'd forgotten that, though I am having to make the transition to responsible, professional adult, I don't have to put on that persona or that uniform all the time. I can wear something just because it makes me grin from ear to ear. LIKE GREEN PANTS. =)

So, what are your green pants? Do you have anything that plasters a goofy grin on your face every time you put it on?
