at Walgreens, of course
Me, strep throat. Attempting to fill two prescriptions. One, antibiotic. The other, throat gargle solution. On throat solution, Walgreens pharm tech says "You'll have to go to a SPECIALTY pharmacy to get this filled. Like one at the hospital. We don't have these SPECIAL ingredients. No Walgreens does." OK, who knows what kind of exotic potion this is. The Pastor and I leave Walgreens. I wonder, could the CVS across the street possibly have these exotic ingredients? Hmmmmmmmm! We drive across the street, explain to the CVS GENIUS pharmacist, who laughs and says my gargle will be ready in half an hour.
Sorry, Walgreens, but I can't simultaneously deal with stupidity and strep throat.
The Pastor was very sweet, even though I was sick and spoiled. I would say acting spoiled, but I wasn't acting. I wanted soup. What kind of soup? Wonton soup or tortilla soup. He didn't want to drive that far. OK, then it woud have to be Lipton noodle soup in a box with the little, tiny noodles. I can't deal with noodle soup in a can. What I didn't tell the Pastor was I don't like the soup in a can because I think those noodles look like worms and I haven't been able to eat any worm-resembling food or fishsticks since I read How to Eat Fried Worms when I was a kid. The Pastor tried to find my soup with no success and I appreciate the effort, but I'm still not sure why he came home with a meat pizza. You know, one of the ones a vegetarian (like me) can't even try to pick the meat off because he got hamburger and it's just impossible.
