Well Hello! It’s so nice to have you back! I’ve got a fresh pot of controversy ready to go...
This topic is a bit, well... kind of on the private side, but I know I can chat with you about it and you’ll laugh with me and hopefully not at me! It’s about my birth control method, oral contraceptives, you know, the pill. I must say, somebody up above has a good sense of humor when it comes to me and the pills that I take!
The predicaments I find myself in, to avoid having another child have been rather amusing through the years and I was reminded the other night how silly one can behave when looking for an object that is a hair bigger than a pinhead and blends so nicely on the granite countertop! As I was searching the countertop, yet again, I thought to myself, “Why do the manufacturers make these pills so hard to see? And why do I keep putting the darn pill on the counter when getting my glass of water if I can’t ever find where I left it? I would make the pills hot pink or fluorescent orange if I had my way!” Then my mind recalled pill dilemmas from the past and I had to giggle.
Pushing the microscopic pill from the plasticky, tinfoil bubble onto the palm of my hand has always been easy enough, except on the rare occasion(s) that the pill would pop out too far and go skydiving down, down, down into the abyss known as the kitchen floor and I’m hoping to hear the tiny pill land on the tile and not on the carpet so as to know approximately the point of its final destination. On my hands and knees is of course about the right time when Hubby enters the kitchen and says, “Dropped your pill again?” Now both of us are on all fours and thank goodness it’s late in the night as the children are sleeping and there is no need to explain to them why Mommy & Daddy are crawling around on the kitchen floor acting like dogs who are searching for that last bit of food crumbs left behind from dinner.
Then there’s the “I forgot to take my pill” quandary. Who made up the stupid rule that you have to take the pill at exactly the same time 24 hours later? Don’t they know I’m never on time for anything? Yikes! Do I take 2 pills to make up for my lateness? Skip one day, double up on the next? Oh, okay, I’ll try that... Like I said, God is a comedian and I’m surprised that I don’t have more kids!
Goodness me, I have been rattling on and on not realizing that the pot is empty. Thanks for stopping by I need to go and powder my nose and, oh yes... take my pill!
Ta Ta for now! xoxo
