I was and still am sick to death of coughing..Friday was 7 weeks, or maybe 8..who can keep track..So I went to Dr. E's at 2pm this afternoon and told him, first of all it's not the blood pressure medicine that's making me cough, it's some allergy, and I want my old blood pressure back as it worked and the new one doesn't..So he said fine, and was going to give me a inhaler, and I said you gave me one last time and it didn't work for Jack-Shit, which is a term I'm not sure he is familiar with. He said this one is different and isn't for asthma it's for allergies. So I puff on it 2 times twice a day. Then I said I want a shot..an allergy shot..and I want a lolly-pop when I get it..He laughed and walked out to get the nurse, then came back in with his hands behind him and leaned forward and in the 'I'm talking to a 6 year old voice', said:"Now if you are a very good girl and don't cry when you get your shot, you can have a piece of candy." and handed me a Milky Way miniature candy bar, giggled and left the room. I think he likes it when I come in to the office. So I got some nameless allergy shot, and a puffer. Which little did I know is like freebasing crank. I've been zipping around the place all afternoon. Had to go back and work an hour from 4:30 to 5:30, as Bam Bam was sick and everyone else was off for the day, and Tom had to be in on a managers conference call. I came bursting thru the door like Wonder Woman slamming my wrists together. I wouldn't say I was on a puffer buzz, but I noticed the Halloween candy was marked down from 50% off to 75 % off, and sold 2 kids $24 worth of Halloween candy. They were going to get a bag of M% M's ., so I steered them over to the baskets full of candy and showed them where the M% M's cost $2 a bag, they could get 5 times that amount of candy for the same price..Their eyes were as big as mine..Wow, really?....You betcha!...When they left I told them to brush their teeth after they ate the candy. They thought that was hysterical. They're new kids just arrived her from Chicago..I said you know you'll have to root for the Cowboys now instead of the Bears or we'll send you back. For about 1/2 a second they believed me..I think I made me some new friends. I came home and picked up the rest of the cracked pecans from Babs, who was using them as therapy to keep from smoking..you should check out her latest post, it's pretty funny. I am making 2 pecan pies..one for the Thanksgiving party at the apartment complex party room and one for Babs for doing all the nut cracking..I think about now she's wishing the nuts were actually attached to some former boyfriend to alleviate her frustrations from not smoking..Well, at least she hasn't kilt anyone yet. But I personally wouldn't fuck with her if I were you.
So we've been threatened with rain, hail and tornado's all day long...But you forget, this is Texas..which means we got nada. I think it sprinkled this morning long enough to make the streets slick and cause a few little old Czech ladies to skid around town.
I have to go now..the pies are in the oven, I'm still on a puffer high and I still have two more puffs coming. Any one want a bag of now or laters for .50cents..
Oh ....good news..Jamie's coming home from Virginia for 2 days..on my fecking birthday..what a great present that will be.
Tomorrow is Veterans Day..hug a vet.
