I think I am going to have to write a book! I'm going to call it "The Misadventures of A Woman and Her Scooter"
I had to go to pick up my prescription at Walmart today. I had the prescription called into the pharmacy last week and I have been procrastinating to go pick it up. One day it was raining, one day I was tired, etc.
Well , today I knew I had to go because I was running out of the pills I had! I looked at the weather report last night and it said that we would have sunshine
in the morning and 30% chance of thunderstorms
in the afternoon. Okay, so I planned to go in the morning to avoid the storms! ( Very smart Spark friends will see where this is headed
When I got up this morning , it was cloudy and there was a light drizzle. Oh well, I had to go! I got my umbrella and headed out to Walmart on my scooter. It was 72 degrees and pretty nice, even with the drizzle! I went to the pharmacy and asked for my prescription. The girl at the counter looked it up and said that there was nothing there for me. REALLY?!
I told her that I had it called in last week. She looked again and said it was returned to stock." Okay, well, I need the pills today!" "You will have to go to the drop-off window and order them again" she said.
So, I "tootled" over to wait in line. I ordered the script again and was told it would be about 15 minutes. I had other shopping to do so that was alright! I did my shopping and went back and got my pills. Then I headed for the door. Guess what? It's now pouring down rain! ( as an aside, I live about 6 blocks from the Walmart-20 minutes on the scooter)
Out into the rain I went with a small umbrella that cost me 5$. I got to the Shoppers grocery store and stopped at the front where there is an roof where I could shake some of the water off the umbrella. While I was shake off the water, the umbrella handle broke in two. REALLY?! Now what?!?
I decided to go in to the grocery store and see if they had some electrical tape that I could use to fix the umbrella. No tape! They did have umbrellas, but they were too expensive! They also had emergency rain ponchos. I got one of those and some self sticking gauze to fix the umbrella.
The poncho was really a thin trash bag with a hood, but it fit over me and covered my legs, And off I went with my trash bag and bent umbrella! The poncho worked great, except for my feet in flip-flops. I dumped the umbrella in the dumpster when I got home! Luckily, I have a big, sturdy umbrella for the next time! I got out of the wet clothes, got a nice cup of green tea with honey, and curled up with my JE book to get points for my challenge!
I guess this will teach me not to procrastinate! Strangely enough, I wasn't upset! Just another adventure for the woman and her scooter! ( Oh, by the way, the sun came out as soon as I got into the house!)
GO TEAM RANGER!
