I pulled into the parking lot of the Rite-Aid, where I spotted one of my neighbors. “Sinuses are killing me,” I said.
She nodded emphatically, and pointed to her face. “I feel awful,” she said. It turns out we’d both been taking generic Claritin after we ran out of the generic Zyrtec, which was probably a mistake. Zyrtec seems to work much better on the summer weeds and mold.
Of course, I had to show ID to buy Sudafed (and then it was registered in a database. But we can’t track guns, of course!) I added to this a Pepsi and a chocolate bar, because the massive infusion of caffeine kicks the drugs into gear more quickly.
So now I’m sitting here, sucking on a soda and eating chocolate, and it’s not even lunchtime yet. Oy.
