I am sitting at my desk this morning when a parent comes in with her teen-aged son and lets me know that she will have to cancel her son's appointment because he has developed a migraine and does not feel well. I don't have a problem with rescheduling the appointment but I am wondering why she did not just call and let me know instead of just coming all the way over here. Was this some kind of "instant migraine" that struck him down as he was walking across the school parking lot or something? I have never seen this lady before but it was kind of like one of those weird moments where you think you know somebody but you just can't place the face. She was super intense and kept on apologizing over and over for having to cancel. Anyway, the lady goes on and on about her son's affliction and how he was so stressed and so on and so forth......... As I am sitting there listing to her go on and on, MY head starts to hurt. I am talking full on tension headache with a total barfy feeling. Great! Now I had the "instant migraine" and it was all the mother's fault. I felt sick for about 30 minutes after she left. She must have had some major negative energy to affect me that way. I feel sorry for her son..... he is stuck with her.

I was getting low on my favorite shampoo and conditioner so I drove all the way to Walgreen's on Saturday to pick some up. When I got there, they had only one bottle in stock. For some unknown (yet still exciting) reason, my favorite shampoo was on sale for $2.37 down from the usual $9.99. I looked a little closer at the sale tag and in small print it said "final closeout!" Story of my life people, story of my life. Everything I like gets discontinued. I am still pissed off that Secret deodorant no longer makes "Arctic Apple" clear deodorant. I could rant about that one for at least half an hour. I asked the sales clerk what was going on with my favorite shampoo and she said it was probably because the bottle was being re-designed (I love the pink and gold bottle... shallow but true!) So, over the course of the weekend I went to 8 different Walgreen's and now own 12 shampoos and conditioners. Approximately $240 worth of products for less than $60 bucks. I am set for awhile at least. Now I just have to find some place to store it all.
