Giving my name and date of birth at the pharmacy, I was surprised to hear they had not just the one medication I needed but two others. I took them all, having them ready on automatic refill meant I would be needing them soon.
As this was our last stop in a morning of errands, I turned my attention to all the things I had to do when I got home. I thought about the bag of prescriptions on the back seat and a brief moment of excited curiosity ran through me: what were the two unexpected pills in the bag?
What the heck was that? It’s not a beautifully wrapped gift, it’s a paper bag of drugs! Why am I feeling a thrill of anticipation?
Getting old is not for sissies. But if you can keep your childlike wonder, it doesn’t hurt quite so much. Which is good news as not one of my medications was for pain.
