In The Haze

People, I am in The Haze right now.

I rolled into the Park Nicollet Urgent Care when it opened at 8 AM.  And at 8:23 AM I rolled out, having set a new record for fastest in-and-out trip to Urgent Care.

Ever.

Decisiveness is key in these situations.  As is a bit of self-diagnosis prior to The Event itself.

So here I am now, hopped up on Sudafed and a Z Pack, giving thanks for the fact that the heaviest machinery I’m required to operate is the three-pound netbook taking up residence on my lap.

In all seriousness, there was a point this morning where I was debating whether or not I was meant to empty my water bottle into the recycling bin (made of cardboard) or the sink.  Following that incident, I knew that the responsible, adult decision would be to have Marcus supervise me while I actioned an Egg Bake for One for my lunch.

Sometimes, you have to pull yourself from the game.

As for The Paint Chip Extravaganza, I got a major kick out of your responses and the editorializing that accompanied it.  And then I realized I actually had to count the freaking things.

The magic number?  90.  Congratulations Brittany @ Be Deliciously Healthy! E-mail your mailing address to tenaciouslyyourskw at gmail dot com and I’ll mail you your lovely prize!

Voila.

And make sure you treasure this one forever, girlfriend.

Part of me wishes I was joking, but the other part of me is really kicking myself for not buying the Sand Dollars Playing Cards a la those Dogs Playing Poker paintings.

We can’t win every battle.

What’s the most ridiculous souvenir you purchased on vacation?

Have you ever been in the antibiotic/Sudafed-induced haze?  Spill the antics, people.
