As you already know, in honor of the past Memorial Day, I've been mentioning veterans I know. The truth is (thankfully) I currently don't know any veterans that died in the line of duty so I just focused on the ones that are living.
Turns out I missed out on another veteran, Fireblossom. I didn't mean to, I just didn't know.
Women veterans rarely get the praise they deserve for serving our country. Not only do they now serve along with the men, but while they are in the service, they also have to be wives, mothers and keep their families together.
While I am here, I also want to acknowlege the military wives who rarely ever get recognized for taking care of our service men and raising their children. I can't imagine what it must feel like for them. They go through so much.
So hats off to you Fireblossom ! You all should check out her blog sometime. She writes poetry. Now I am normally not into poetry. But she has a way with words. Or shall I say, Shay has a way...........
Before I go, I need to send a special shout-out
Basically she's got something going on down south. Ladies, we've all been there. You know the feeling. Basically one day you wake up and something's not right. Uncomfortable doesn't even begin to describe it.
Anyway, we were both crouched down at the medicinal aisle ................Why must Safeway put this shit at the very bottom so that it hurts your lower back to pick it up ? It's like a yeast infection isn't bad enough, now you've got to hurt your lower back in trying to pick it up. Not only did we have to bend over, but I am pretty sure while we were bent over they wanted to give us the big stiffy with no lube by charging such high prices. But the good news is that the lube was a shelf or two above the cooter creams.
I guess it's Safeway's way of flipping us the bird and charging us for it.
So back to the story......... we were both crouched down reading boxes. I was holding two boxes side by side and explaining the difference. Those that know me know my voice carries. I was reading the boxes to her and using big words like "miconazole nitrate" and "ovule vs suppositories" and I thought the store was fairly empty.
But no, this silver-haired old bag walks by and looks at us a little too long and smirks. What the Hell ?
When he walked by, I didn't do anything out of shock. But I almost asked him if he wanted to join us and give us some pointers for our cooters. Since he was kind of lurking, I figured he knew something we didn't and I wanted to hear it. I am kinda pissed at myself I didn't cause a scene and start asking him about vaginal infections. At that point, I didn't care about how embarrassing myself or my poor friend. Honestly, I still don't. I really missed out on a golden opportunity. If you are going to lurk like that I will make you own up to it.
Anyhoochie, that is all for now my loves.
