My 4th grader had a bad start to her day.
She got to school just in time to throw up in a trash can in front of her class.
Making this DAY 25 of someone being sick in our house.
But the good news....not that there is good news, but since i am grasping for any sort of silver lining I can....is that she is now on an antibiotic along with her sister.
Not that she can keep it down or anything.
(there goes my silver lining)
Antibiotics = Drugs
Drugs = another visit to my most favorit-est pharmacy!
Favorite pharmacy = HANNAH
Hannah = Chocolate! (she gives me a treat every time i come in)
(and i am a regular at this pharmacy)
So I belly up to the bar at my favorite pharmacy and Hannah's treat for me today was Dove Milk Chocolate with Caramel.
Do you know why I love Dove chocolate?
Besides the chocolate, I mean.
Dove chocolate is inspirational.
Each piece is wrapped in foil with a nice message on the inside.
And my piece of "inspiration" today says:
"You should charge for your great advice"
This reminds me of a pair of jeans I once I had. There was a random inspirational message on a tag sewed in right next to my zipper. On the inside, so I could only see it when I was going to the bathroom.
Because who doesn't like being inspired while on the toilet, right?
I don't fit in to these jeans anymore.
Not since I discovered the "inspiring" dove chocolate.
By the way, I think my pharmacist is jealous because I haven't even mentioned his name here on the blog. He didn't say it, but I'm pretty sure he was thinking "hannah, hannah hannah!" in sort of a Jan Brady "marsha! marsha! marsha!" kind of way.
So here is an official world-wide-web shout out to Ron the pharmacist: who gave me a girl scout cookie and helped me get off that nose spray i got addicted to a few years back. he also scored me some samples of alieve last year and that one time when i had a little bit of a spinal fusion surgery on my neck, he told me that i probably wouldn't die from it and sold me a stool softener because i thought i was going to die from the side effects of neck surgery medication.....this single act in itself gave me hope for the future.
Plus also: he hired hannah.
Thanks Ron. I'll add you to my christmas card list too.
