il camice

I extended the sale of our iBook one more day since a number of people had difficulty purchasing it!

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun, il camice, which means whitecoat or smock. They are often worn by doctors and nurses in hospitals, but it can also refer to overalls worn by workers or gowns worn by patients. Don’t confuse il camice with le camice (le camicie)! See the noun used below in its context:

Mio marito è medico e ogni volta che devo stirare il suo camice è un’impresa! Le maniche sono la parte più facile da stirare, mentre per il colletto perdo più tempo. Magari potesse usare uno di quei camici verdi usa e getta! Basta con questi camici!

My husband is a doctor, and every time I have to iron his whitecoat it is an undertaking! The sleeves are the easy part to iron while I waste more time on the collar. Perhaps he could use one of those green smocks that are disposable! Enough with these whitecoats!
