i feel like a blob.
or what i would imagine being high all the time would feel like. i don’t do drugs – mostly because i’m pretty sure i’d like them too much. am i crossing the line? i’m blame it on the cold medicine that i’m not taking because people overuse medicine.
but seriously. it’s true. i mean – every time anyone has a cold or a cough everyone’s like ‘go to the doctor. do not collect $200. run forrest, runn.’ and most of the time it’s just a virus. there isn’t anything a doctor can give you. your little body has to work the little bug out of your system. plus, going to the doctor is the worst. there’s that horrible smell. and the fish in the tank that just stare at you. and their always like “your blood pressure is a little high” – and i’m like “oh yeah well, have you lived a day in my life? is it going to be chris or josh andi, chris or josh?!?! (bachelorette reference. seriously, get on my educational tv level please)
i actually have a theory that amoxicillin is given out by doctors to crazy patients just so they will leave them alone. it’s like doctor’s version of the placebo effect. pretty sure i should have gone to med school. instead i chose PR not ER. although, i don know – i would guess there are comparable stress levels at both.
still on that wrong side of the line aren’t i? sorry mom.
in sum, say no to drugs kids.
toeing back across to the glenda side of the line.
i am currently trying to think of something to say that isn’t whining or “poor me. so much pressure on my sinuses. someone bring me soup.”
or what about the people that are like “oh yessss. there’s that bug going around. my cousins stepsister’s uncle in law had it all last week. couldn’t keep a thing inside of him. not pretty.” and i just want to know, what is this “bug” that has been going around in every form of every sniffle i’ve ever had for the last 26 years? perhaps we should give it some amoxicillin.
the worst part is that i would probably sell my younger brother to have this soup on my stove right now. but my family apparently didn’t realize that i would wake up with an elephant sitting on my sinuses this morning so they ate it all. because they loved it so much. because it’s so delicious. they’re so rude and inconsiderate.
i’ve lied if i ever told you i love a soup more than this one. this one is where it’s at. so much flavor. and still healthy. we know my thing about unhealthy soups and salads. pet peeve. if you don’t, welcome to sassy eats – i have a thing against cream and cheese in soups and salads. if you need that for flavor you’re really bad at making soups and salads. yea, i said it. it’s the cold medicine that I’m not takings fault. and yes, i’m extra sassy when i don’t feel well.
