The homeopathic remedy says “take three drops” and I take ten, three times a day.
When I leave the doctor’s office with estrogen and an antibiotic I think, “Look, I scored some meds.”
When I put on my new shirt and I like the way it looks I don't say, “Great choice, I look nice.” Instead I think, “I’ve got to get three more of these.”
When the one pound bag of coffee is half empty I panic and buy another. I need to keep at least one full package in the cupboard. (I live five minutes from a 24-hour grocery store.)
