I'm a WHAT Woman??

W'lllll... scrubs and sweats are a little casual for, say, a public outing or a double date, but uh, you are a nurse, aren't you Tommie? I mean, when you're not playing piano for the Hoop De Doo Revue?

When I'm wheeled into the emergency room, I expect a certain amount of professionalism from the staff tending to me. I expect hues of toothpasty blue and raspberry sherbet. I want to see the scrubs! Scrubs don't make me think: "Don't look at me, I'm a loser." They make me think: "Oh good, there's someone who can tell me how I make this blood pressure monitor stop beeping stop beeping please STOP BEEPING FOR THE LOVE OF GOD!!" And then they sedate me. God bless 'em!

But...but...aren't women supposed to dress the way men want them to, 24/7? Even if it gets in the way of their doing their work???

I suspect that Tommie's work wardrobe -- scrubs and sweats -- has become her all-purpose wardrobe. Once her choices are expanded, she may need a tutor in dressing for the occasion. I agree that when I'm on the gurney, the medical professionals should dress the part. I sure don't want them to look like they can't wait to go out on the town when my life's in their hands.

Tommie's trainable. Lu Ann and Margo, maybe so maybe no.

I'm assuming the makeover doesn't include a hand reduction for Tommie's freakish manhand...I like how she went into some sort of trance in the last panel and isn't even smiling.
