So, I took some advice from my mom (yes, Mom, I do periodically listen to you) and thought I'll ask the Universe/God/Powers-That-Be for a nice little surprise today. Thinking that it might come in the form of something pink.
So I was going about my morning throwing together lunch, getting dressed and making scrambled eggs for breakfast. I looked at the clock and realized that I had far less time than I had realized. So I wolfed down my breakfast thinking that it may have tasted a little odd but added it up to eating so quickly. I skipped out the door in my new (and insanely comfy) $12 shoes form Meijer.
I get to work reminding myself to be on the lookout for a nice little something today. I eat lunch and come back from my break. I start filling an order and answering some questions from my coworkers only to start feeling...odd.
You know that feeling: cramping, nausea, slightly warm and clammy. And in dire need of a bathroom. Now.
I run back to the bathroom - I might have even punted a kitten and knocked over a little old lady on my way. I realize that I cannot stay at work. Or, rather, if I do I WILL BE working from the restroom. Not a good idea.
So I go home. Which is something I never do. Migraine? Pfft, I'll work through it. Missing a leg? Please, just get me a tourniquet and I'll be hunky-dory. Passing out after hitting my elbow (true story, by the way)? Meh, I'll just regain consciousness and start working again.
But I cannot work through this. No way. So I go home. And drink some rice wine vinegar (don't give me that look - it works) and run to the grocery store and buy some Pepto Bismal.
What do you know.
I got my surprise.
And something pink.
