Yesterday I had the worst headache . . . it just refused to go away!! At first I thought maybe I needed a caffeine fix, so I trekked on over to Starbucks (one without the major bling episode going on 24 hours a day, every damn day!) and ordered my Iced Grande Extra Ice White Mocha, drank it like a crazy woman, and still had a headache!! Come to think of it, maybe the coffee didn't work because I drank it too fast, hmmm, oh well. Next, I decided that I needed Tylenol desperately, but I was nowhere near my house where I have the Costco sized bottle in the bathroom, so, for the very first time in my entire life (that I can remember) I stopped at a gas station to buy Tylenol!! I have no idea why I think this is a big deal . . . probably for the same reason I get all crazy when I have to use a public restroom because I am too far from home and don't have a change of clothes!
So, I walk into the little convenience store and look around the front wall where they keep all of the drugs, and all I could see was disposable toothbrushes, band-aids and neosporin, and miniature sewing kits . . . oh the horror, I finally get up enough courage to buy Tylenol from the gas station and they don't even have any, and my head is hurting, bad!! I turn to walk out, and there, beside the door, was a whole wall of Pain Relievers . . . I let out a huge sigh of relief, which caused the clerk to look at me, so I went on to tell him all about my headache, because you know, he didn't have anything better to do than listen to me complain! Finally, I had Tylenol, and it even came with a "convenient travel cup" which was basically a small envelope for which one is supposed to pour water in . .. if only I had water!!!!!!!!!
On a side note, I bought myself a pair of sandals yesterday, because I really needed them as much as I really need a hole in my head. Anyway, my sandals are called "Bling!" Now I can wear them everyday to Starbucks!!
Ryles, what did you do for the first time yesterday? Please tell . . .
