We Wants It, We Needs It. Must Have The Precious.

I recently received a box from my cousin Maggie (aka my dealer).  I had been anticipating the arrival of this box, which contained My Precious, for many days, and every time she asked me, “Is it there yet?  It should be!”, I’d re-check the mailbox, then have to walk back to my house, in a depressed state, since it was never there.  Humph.  (That’s a lie, I NEVER check my mailbox.  Thankfully, my husband does.  However, did you picture me walking across the street, with slumped shoulders, so disheartened that I didn’t care if I got hit by a car?  Cuz that’s how I felt). The package took ages to reach me.

When I finally saw the box (on the kitchen counter, brought in by my husband), I felt the rush of serotonin, creating a chemical surge of happiness, while simultaneously imagining the sound of a trumpet (do do dah DOOO!), and envisioning an angel in front of me, the box cradled in her porcelain hands. Yes, I was that excited.

I tore that sucker open and tossed the box in the trash.  I let Maggie know that I had finally received the package and she asked me how I liked the stickers.  Stickers??? Hm.  I didn’t notice any stickers?  She laughed, and said, “Atta girl.  You and I will be besties at The Betty“.  But she thought I was kidding.

Curious about what she meant by “the stickers”, I went to the trash and plucked out the discarded vesicle.  Sure enough, in my haste to get to the goods, I missed out on the embellishments decorating the package.  When we go to France, to restock, I”ll have to pick some of these up as well, they’re pretty cute.

Tunnel vision – didn’t even see the Eiffel Tower.

  1. I wouldn’t have noticed the stickers, either. I would have been going for the drugs. Now if the stickers had been on the drug container, THAT I would have noticed. In passing. Wishing you much sleep and peaceful dreams!

  2. Yes, I DID picture you walking back from the mailbox with slumped shoulders. Exactly like that. I like how you confessed your fib though.

    But I think you got the trumpet thing wrong. It should be “da da da DAH!’ Just sayin’

    Hope you get some sleep!

  3. I’ve never been so happy for someone to get pills in the mail! I wasn’t really sure how you would spell that, but I always spend an inordinate amount of time reading peoples’ sound-spellings- sort of sounding them out in my head.
