- Generic Z-Pac
- Advair (Which I have no earthly idea how to use)
- Nasonex (Nose spray... blechhh.)
- Cough Syrup w/Codeine (What kind of maniac assumes a person would enjoy Pina Colada flavoring in their narcotic?! Good Lord!)
Guess how much this loot (+ my co-pay) cost? That's right, $125. This stupid cold will cost me days from work and $125. Of course, I'll be glad to kick this cold the right way but still, it got me thinking, what else could I have purchased with that $125? (Besides donating it to a favorite charity. Lighten up and play, would ya?!)
Here are a few ideas:
My favorite perfume and body lotion
A printer I've been eyeing and actually need:
That lovely BBC Jane Austen DVD set AND the Complete Oxford Illustrated set of Jane Austen books:
Dance, Dance Revolution game, for that new Wii* I'm getting for "exercise", plus another game of my choice:
Of course, I really do enjoy breathing so I suppose $125 is worth it. Then again, there are some nice things I've NOT bought because I've become a miser saving for a home. A home that will someday have a super-cool Wii gaming system! *Because, after all, the "Best Auntie in the World", as my niece and nephew call me, can't just rest on her laurels. "The Best Auntie in the World" needs to keep outdoing herself constantly. Besides, I've promised to kick Mom's butt at Wii boxing and look forward to giving the kids simultaneous heart attacks when they see it for the first time.
Oh, and while I'm looking at the bright side of life, I'm happy to announce I've finally timed a dreadful cold with an equally dreadful So. Cal rain storm. Finally!
Rain. It's my favorite.
