Since you all were so creative and prolific with your naming suggestions for "vovey goo" (sorry, that one is stuck deep in my psyche ) I thought I'd recruit your brilliant minds for a real life naming dilemma.
The Susan B. Komen "Race for the Cure" for breast cancer is coming up. Last year, one of our staff was post-op from her own case, so I organized a team to walk/run in support of her. We called ourselves The Brassieres (in support, get it?). I ordered a bunch of white baseball caps and went to the thrift store and bought the gaudiest bras I could find. We then decorated the caps with the bras [arrgh, here's where I wish I had more cyber-smarts: I'd insert a photo], augmented a bit with craft stuffing, glitter, etc. They looked totally ridiculous and hilarious. We had a great time, and we won the Team Spirit award.
Sometimes once around is enough for a good idea, so we're looking for a new name for this year's team. We'll need a new costume or gimmick to go with it. Some of our ideas so far are:
Sarcastomas in Situ
We welcome more witty suggestions from any and all smart alecks.
This year, I will be holding in my mind a relative and a patient, both recently diagnosed. The staff person who was benched by surgery last year is back in the game and on the team, so we'll be celebrating too!
