Monday Feathers To Tickle Your Funny Bones

.

Dear Friends,

After opening the medicine cabinet door caused my hairbrush to tumble out, ricochet off the sink and into the toilet for the third time in a week, I decided I needed to make a little room in the cabinet.

The first thing I pulled down was a bottle of pills that had been prescribed by a doctor who died six years ago. At this point I had no idea what the prescription was for and, frankly, I'm not even sure it was for me, as the label had faded a long time ago. But since I don't know what it's for, I'll never know when I'll need it. So I put it back.

I suppose I'll keep my half-full jar of liniment. I indulged myself in a week-long addiction to this stuff after I strained a muscle in my neck. This brand uses heat to soothe aching muscles and it works pretty quickly. Next to it is a bottle of calamine lotion. It was used only once -- when I burned my neck rubbing too much liniment on it.

I should also probably keep my vertigo pills, even though a yellow sticker on the side warns: May Cause Dizziness! Now, you can look at this two ways. 1.) Don't take anything that might cause dizziness; or 2.) While the vertigo will make me dizzy in one direction, the pills will make me dizzy in another direction, countering the effects.

I was wrong. There was nothing I could part with. So I made a decision: I just won't open my medicine cabinet door anymore.


Seashells

Why do mermaids wear seashells?
Because B-shells are too small and D-shells are too big.
 


LOL  Live Laugh and Love today!!!!

lol, that was cute, loved the story, your medicine cabinet sounds like mine, except i did have to throw 1 item out recently, which was a bottle of cough syrup that had expired over a year ago. Triaminic it was called for my daughter. Not giving her anything that was expired, no way!!!!!! You have a great day!! (((Hugs))))
