I have never thought of myself a a hoarder. Sure I have things from years ago but I still use them, wear them, need them. That’s not a problem. I can throw stuff out, I do it all the time. I regularly go through closets and cupboards and clean out clothing and kitchen appliances.
So imagine my shock to find I am hoarding in the medicine cupboard. You all know my perspective on healthcare, for a hospital trip the requirement is bones sticking out, bleeding profusely or death! The kids recite this while rolling their eyes if they hurt themselves. I’m not the gushy, worrywart parent, of course I check if a child gets hurt but for the most part I can repair it, cure it or nurse the victim back to health. There are exceptions, like our recent ER trip, but they are few and far between, thankfully.
I have a very extensive medicine cupboard. Don’t judge me. I have all manner of pain killers, cold remedies and wart remover, remedies for pink eye and UTI’s. You name it, I got it. It all gets used but there’s one thing I have an over abundance of …..medicine cups.
It’s ridiculous. Both the kids have been sick over the weekend, so I have been giving them doses of every kind of cold medicine, coloidal silver and echinacea. I didn’t need to wash a medicine cup all weekend. They each had their own set.
I might have a problem:
I blame the drug companies. They’re the enablers, selling those little plastics cup strapped to the top of every bottle of Tylenol, Ibuprofen and every other cough/cold medicine on the market.
It’s all their fault. I should sue!
