Well That Was Embarrassing
I'm sending DJ off to college. And I'm sure that he is not going to be a saint while he is there. He might find that he has a wild streak. I don't know where he could get it from?
So I decided that I don't want to be a grandmother. Oh god, that stung a bit to even type it. Can you see where I am going with this one?
I went to my local CVS to buy condoms. Take a moment and let that sink in. So I learned a few things from this trip. First, there are a bunch of different condoms. And all of which, I know nothing about. And then I remembered who they were for and it made it HORRIBLY uncomfortable! So there I stand blushing and by myself with ten thousand different kinds of condoms. I snag a box after deciding that I don't care if they are ribbed or not and walk not to the front because they always have a ton of customers but to the pharmacy that is empty. What a sneaky plan I have come up with! Needless to say, every worker in the pharmacy now gets a call or has something pressing to do. And a line forms behind me. I keep telling myself, to let it go and I'm an adult and can buy these things. All the while, my face burns even brighter. Finally, I get someone to help me after the old lady behind me keeps clearing her throat. I'm not sure if that was because she had to wait or it was because she was trying to embarrass me. Probably not the latter. The lovely woman working there, that is just slightly older than I am, doesn't look at what I am buying and just asks whats my last name is and my prescription. Ummmmm no, just these, I say and nod towards the box. She looks at the box and then me. Her smirk was not well contained. I felt like saying they were for my son but that seemed perverted even in my mind. She dropped them in a plastic bag and I felt slightly better. But don't despair, even through the embarrassment, I managed to use my CVS bucks and a 25% off coupon. What can I say, I looked like a cheap slut.
I'm probably going to avoid the pharmacy for a while.
