It has been months since I first noticed Edward. Every time I go to Walgreens I walk past the pharmacy to try to catch a glimpse of him. This week I have been struggling with some health problems. My various doctors have changed my medication three times just in the past few days. As a result, I've been to the Walgreens pharmacy almost every day this week. I look like death warmed over, but I've been able to sneak little smiles at Edward here and there. Tonight, he was working the cash register when I went up to the counter. He said, "I feel like I've seen you here every day this week." I said, "you have, my doctors keep changing my medicine because they aren't quite sure what the problem is yet." He said, "Well let's see if your prescriptions are ready, Sarah. See - I even know your name!" I said, "Well, it is nice to meet you Edward." He smiled and pulled my bag out of the bin. He said, "It looks like your... er... cream (Just say it Edward - it's ANAL CREAM!) isn't ready yet, but I have the valium here for you." I said, "no problem. I don't really want that scary cream anyway, so I can wait until tomorrow to pick it up. Valium seems to solve most of my problems anyway." Edward laughed a bit nervously and rang up my transaction. I decided at that moment, I wanted to crawl in a hole and rot, at least until April. I've been crushing on this guy for six months and the first time he talks to me he has to see that I am picking up cream for my butt?! And then I try to make it better my letting him know I'm crazy and take valium?!
Wow... and I wonder why I struggle sometimes!
