Forever Your Girl
On Sunday I got very sick. On Monday there was an eye of the hurricane and I ran out that evening and got a small box of special sick tissues to use when I ran out of my regular tissues. By early Wednesday afternoon I had run out of all tissues. I had to resort to using toilet paper as a substitute, and it was very cruel. Literally, within two hours, my nose was sore and hurting.
A half hour later I was in the drugstore buying more special tissues. While waiting to pay, the woman ahead of me in line kept turning around and looking at the boxes nestled in my arms. I smiled brightly at her and tried to not look sick. (Spoiler: Probably didn't work)
What did I learn from this whole experience? That I need to be more negative. Less optimistic! Better in a day? As if! That may be how horrific colds work for other people, but not me. When I get sick, I'm down for a solid week. My mistake was buying only one box of tissues on Monday. Tissues don't expire. In the future, I'll be more loyal and invest more in the special tissues. Lesson. Learned.
