taking pills

before i go into my story, you should just watch this 6 second video.

ok well now that you watched a human bicycle, you will now hear the story of why i take the pills the way i do.
so, when i take a pill i take a big drink of water, and before i swallow it, i tip my head back and drop the pill in, unlike some people who put the pill in their mouth and take a sip of water. my family, well mostly my dad, always laughs at the way i do it. my response is always "it gets stuck in my throat if i don't!" to which my dad laughs. and I'm here to say, i have evidence!!!

so i just got my wisdom teeth out a few weeks ago. along with the pain killers, they gave me an antibiotic prescription that i had to take every day until it was over. just try to imagine this....

it was late at night and i needed to take the antibiotic, which was in a little red and white capsule. i didn't really feel like going out to the kitchen to get a cup of water, so i just got my hand and got a little bit of water from the sink. i then took the pill, and of course i felt like it was stuck in my throat because i didn't have enough water, but i just thought it was in my mind. so i kept on getting ready for bed. and then i coughed. when i coughed i looked in the mirror and a huge cloud of smoke came from my mouth. a huge, menacing looking cloud of white smoke just appeared out of my mouth. i was so shocked!!! and then in the 2 seconds it took for me to get over the shock of what just happened, i tasted the most horrifying taste in my life. worse than i can even imagine. in fact, i can't recall how it tasted, now that this even has passed, i just remember the horrible, horrible taste. I'm not exaggerating even a little bit. it tasted like a sewer had exploded, or a nasty garbage truck crashed into my mouth (it goes without saying that all garbage trucks are nasty, i just wanted to emphasize that fact). i started spitting and coughing and frantically wiping my tongue with my hand, and making super dramatic disgusted faces. i cupped my hands and got as much water as i could possibly hold from the sink and drank it in 2 seconds. To no avail, the horrific taste remained. so i ran, sprinted actually, into the kitchen and grabbed a million soda crackers and ate them as fast as i could. luckily it helped. once the nasty taste was only a remnant of a horrible memory, i started cracking up. why you might ask? because i kept picturing that cloud erupting from my throat and i replayed the look of surprise on my face and laughed every time.

its safe to say I'm sticking to the way i take my pills.

sometimes i see people in love and I'm annoyed, like i think to myself, "you can't seriously be acting that way naturally" and then sometimes i read about love and it is beautiful. like in jane eyre. oh my gosh that book makes me want an exciting dating life. "I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you--especially when you are near me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous channel, and two hundred miles or so of land come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapt; and then I've a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly."  i sigh inside. i hope i will never be one of those annoying couples. actually i vow that i never will. thats all.

random mutterings of my boring life and a whole lotta webcam pics

1. my mom is a doll and is coming all the way from california to save me from the evil after effects of getting my wisdom teeth removed (i honestly can't think about it because I'm scared to death. and i don't care how many people tell me it will be fine, I'm scared i will somehow die of horrendous complications and i can't stop talking about my dang teeth because it won't leave my mind) so i need to be cleaning my room for my mom...but as we all know cleaning is my least favorite thing ever so I'm avoiding it. hence blog post.

2. i got locked out of my house the other day. i was starving and sleepy and ready to hammer in the windows and get cut to pieces by the glass as long as it meant i could lay in my bed and eat some macaroni and cheese. but instead i took photo booth pictures until my blessed computer died on me. evidence....

who doesn't love a little pop art. 

my only company was lady bugs scooting on by

yes, i did take a picture of my clover tongue. whats it to you

ok. after 2 hours i really was wondering if i would have to spend the rest of my life outside under my window talking to bugs. it was a sad moment

i bet you thought i was behind a beautiful scene of clouds. don't be fooled.

3. i carved a pumpkin. a nerdy little pumpkin. it was pretty fitting because i was being super nerd-like carving a pumpkin all by myself. no one around me, or even in my house. laughing at my own jokes as i carved my little guy. don't worry, i realize how lame that sounds.

i even had to take a picture of myself with the pumpkin by myself...because no one was around. i felt like having a transcendentalist moment...

4. I'm obsessed with my cup i made. well correction, my sister made it because i was to scared to do it by myself. its cut from a wine bottle, and i sanded the edges. i can't drink out of any other cups now. my mind tells me all other water from any other drinking devise tastes bad. 

5. I'm almost done with my mission papers and I'm sooo stinking excited! only a few little things left to take care of. including a big thing called a scary doctors appointment i don't want to do. but i can't wait, I'm so excited! 

6. i think its time i started cleaning and sleeping. momma will be here before i know it :)
