Tonight, i wanted to write about prescription drugs. I insanely bad-slept last night (because of the heat and an army of mosquitoes savagely attacking me) and woke up to the sound of my cel phone buzzing non-stop at 9am when all my crazy soccer fan friends were wondering what my crazy soccer fan ass was thinking about the game about to begin (Germany England in the 8th finals of the 2010 World Cup) and where i was gonna watch THE game of the day (Mexico-Argentina at 1:30pm). Never in my life had i so much trouble getting out of bed. I actually had to DRAG myself out of bed because i so badly wanted to watch the game. Even though it was nice and cool this morning and i could have slept in another week or so.
So anyway, i watched the game, over breakfast, blackberry mesengering my best friend back in England and contemplating the mess i live in.
OK i am really all over the place now, i started about prescription drugs and ended up with my mango situation. Cuz i washed and peeled like 20 kilos of mangos tonight as well. I even got myself blisters so painful they actually burst open. Gross.
So yeah, prescription drugs. Here in Mexico, you can get them without prescriptions. Makes life easier (especially when you dont need a prescription to get your anticonceptive pills or your asthma inhalor) but surely doesnt help the hypochondriac i am. Just the concept of BUYING the drugs and i already feel better. True story. So when i had my endless running nose this morning, i knew that moving dusty suitcases around wouldnt help but since things couldnt get worse anyway, might as well. So after being in apnea pretty much all day, i thought, yeah, not spending another sleepless night, i'm taking THE drug to clear my nose, the very one everybody here tells you it'll destroy your nasal cartilage inside, the one that will make me a snorting nose drop addict, the only one that actually works with my nasal congestion. I have it stored in my 911-emergency-kit-for-maty's bag (along with tampons, inhalor for asthma, condoms, cold sore cream and anti-urinary infection pills ... all those being a recurrent necessities in my life). Only side effect with it: you can't drive heavy machinery (which i wasnt planning on doing tonight anyway, don't have wheelbarrow anylonger) cuz it makes you sleepy ... So, basically, what i'm saying is that i'm finally able to breathe normally AND i have drugs that actually gonna make me sleep like a baby? FUCK YEAH
(where's the decongestant spray? so i can indulge in another guilty snort ...)
