Yesterday morning I woke up with a slightly stuffy nose. Although I felt well, I worried that a cold might be making the first whispers of an introduction. Determined that I wasn't sick because we have too much holiday fun on tap for the coming days, I pushed the sniffles out of my thoughts and moved forward with my day.
By mid-afternoon, ignoring my congestion was no longer an option. What had begun as slight annoyance, had slowly morphed into a full blown sinus headache as the day progressed. I rummaged through my bathroom cabinets until I found the familiar little Sudafed pills. I pushed two through the foil backing and popped them with a swig of coffee.
I continued working for a few minutes until a sense of foreboding began to envelop me. I went to the bathroom and looked at the box of Sudafed. Unfortunately, it didn't say Sudafed; it said "Gentle Laxative for Women."
D'oh! How could I make such a stupid mistake. I quickly realized that there was no use beating myself up for taking the wrong medication. According to the box, I would reap my own personal punishment in 12-16 hours.
Needless to say, it was a long night. Always trying to look on the positive side, I did have a plethora of "alone time" to page through the magazines I still hadn't gotten around to throwing away.
