What Doesn't Kill You Makes You Stranger

The Cop in the TARDIS December 20, 2014

I went as a TARDIS for Halloween this year. Besides being a huge Doctor Who fan and thinking it was a great costume idea, I really just wanted the sundress. And since I’m in sunny Florida right now, I’ve been wearing my pretty blue TARDIS dress on a regular basis.

This week, I was in Starbucks after a matinee performance, wearing my TARDIS dress. As I was ordering my coffee, the barista looked at me and said, “Are you a cop?”

I blinked for a moment, assuming that she had seen my fake eyelashes and thought I was working Vice as a fake hooker, but then I noticed she was looking at my TARDIS dress.

“No,” I said, shaking my head. “It’s a TARDIS dress.”

“Cause that’s a really great cop uniform,” the girl said, still clearly not getting it.

“Like a TARDIS from Doctor Who,” I kindly clarified.

“Oh.” She smiled. “You’re an English cop. I hope we have pretty cop uniforms in America soon.”

Sweet Jesus, I’m glad she made a bangin’ cup of coffee, because if she thinks cops wear sundresses, she may be a coffee savant.

    Im glad we dont have to wear undressed. By the time you find one baggy enough to fit over the bullet resistant vests, your figure is hidden badly enough that the whole point is ruined.

    Sundresses* auto correct failed me.
