I'm anemic (I know, that's shocking news since my skin is so transparent that you can read the serial numbers off my capillaries), so I've been instructed by a trained medical professional to take copious amounts of Ibuprofen during the heaviest days of my period to help my body from demineralizing myself such as it does.
So today, I popped four ibuprofen into my mouth and reached for the water glass (which is made out of plastic, of course, because we all know that I'm all elbows and clumsiness) I keep on my desk.
It was empty and the pills were beginning to dissolve.
So what to do:
1. Do I walk out to the reception area with four rapidly dissolving pills on my tongue to refill my glass? Or,
2. Do I spit them into my hand and walk walk into the reception area to refill my glass while carrying four smeary pills? Or,
3. Do I do something much smarter that I can't think of?
Just for the record, I chose number 2, the spit option. Because that's the kind of girl I am. But I'd like to hear what better ideas there might be ... you know, for next time.
