You Know It's A Bad Sign When...

   You know it's a bad sign when you go to Walmart and as soon as you're in the store, there a many, many displays of cold and flu medicines. That's what we went to Walmart for, and so did every other sick person in Spokane and the surrounding areas. Let's all just spread more germs.
   When we made it to the cough and cold/flu isle, people were so rude and pushy. They just had to get in the way and grab their medicine, while I stood there and tried to figure out what exactly I could take. I chose my generic Vicks Vapo Rub, Vicks inhaler and 2 different kids of Coricidin medicine. One for coughs and one for no coughs. I stared and read many packages of cough drops and decided I'd just get lemon drops or peppermint candy.
   We got the dog food and and other dog stuff we needed so it was on to the grocery department. We bumped into those same sick, pushy rude people on the Kleenex isle, which was just about picked clean. I found a 3 pack of non lotion, non medicated Puffs and we were on our merry way.
   We bought cookies and bread because I sure don't feel like standing around making any, and the all important Hot Chocolate Mix and my Chocolate Nesquick. Nesquick will cure all that ails me and life will be good again.
   We paid for our few items that totaled $147 and were headed home when I remembered we didn't get the no cough pills, lemon drops or peppermint candy.
   We took the stuff we had home, because some of it needed to be refrigerated and then went to BiMart in Deer Park to spread our sick germs around and to collect someone else's sick germs at the same time. A quick stop at the fast foods drive up window for dinner, because I didn't feel like fixing dinner, and then we went home.
   I hate being sick. I know, no one likes being sick, so It's a good thing I only get sick once a year, but the cough seems to hang on forever. I hope this years latest virus passes you by, it's no fun.
