Slumming It


One time, I was monitoring a patient as she waited for a procedure. One of our phlebotomists came in, and we talked.

Phleb: What high school did you go to?
Me: Clearfield.
70 something-year-old Patient: Slumming it at Clearfield, huh?

WHAT?! What kind of 70-something white female living in Utah County knows what the phrase slumming it means, let alone uses it (accurately) to describe my high school in the little-known city of Clearfield?

An awesome one, that's who.
