The Bane of My Existence (Confessisons #2)

Donuts.

01) Doughnut or donut, however you want to spell it, I’d be happy if I never had to see or (better yet!) make another one again for as long as I live. Working in a bakery has now made me hate both cookies and donuts. Ugh.

02) My next confession is one of fear. I’ve been fighting a toothache for the last week and a half and finally had to get some antibiotics (Hey, blame the British teeth that run in the family – sorry Brits!). Anyway, it turns out that I am also allergic to Doxycycline – I say this as I lustily scratch the hives that have broken out on my legs – which makes the total FIVE major antibiotics that I am allergic too. Penicillin, Amoxicillin, Clindamycin, Erythromycin and now Doxycycline. The only one I know that I can still take is Bactrim and my confession is that I’m worried what happens when I eventually develop a resistance to it. I joked about it earlier on Facebook, but I had a flash panic thought that I’ll end up dying because I get a stupid infection and cant take anything to fight it. I hate my body sometimes…

03) As part of the care for my toothache and infection, I was given Vicodin. Oh, heavenly Vicodin. How I love you. and I will admit that while in a very stoned Vicodin stupor, I ate an entire pint of raspberries in about 10 seconds. I also apparently woke up in the middle of the night, walked out into the living room and accused my roommate of going on a Hawaiian or Bermuda vacation and not telling me. Yeah, I don’t know. I blame the Vicodin! Oh, sweet, sweet Vicodin ;)

04) I have to admit. I think my love for books is bordering on unhealthy obsession. I say this not 10 minutes after searching my bookshelf for something new to read and dropping three VERY big hardcovers right on my pinkie toe.

05) Oh and back to the Vicodin … I will also admit to working under the influence (though I took half a pill instead of the two pills I was taking at night) but the only horrible thing that happened, happened at 5am when I was alone, thank god. I had just put a rack of bread in the oven, closed the door, turned and … ran right into the proofer door, face first. I’m not 100% sure that I can blame that on Vicodin though since I’m a pretty huge klutz, but we can pretend, right?

06) But my favorite moment to have happen so far this week? Talking to a co-worker about how adorable I think one of our co-workers happens to be … and realizing that he was standing behind me the whole time, smirking. Please, let me fall through the floor now.

Anything you need to confess? Feel free to share with me in a comment and/or join the Hump Day Confessions at Vodka and Soda!

  • Are you suffering from allergies lately? I developed a toothache that actually had nothing to do with a tooth and everything to do with crazy out of control sinusitis! As long as I take my allergy meds it doesn’t even hurt. The human body is both amazing and confusing sometimes.

    Hope your tooth feels better, hope you never come down with anything major, hope if you do science will have progressed further and you can take other things to stay healthy annnnnd, I will happily take all your donuts! :D

    My confession this week is….. I used to love the children at the library but the summer reading program and summer, in general, has made me despise them. Get out! Go home. Go play outside. Take your lazy parents with you! -___-

  • Oh noooo about the coworker standing right there! What did you do?? Also donuts are delish .. too bad Im eating healthy or I could have so seen myself indulging in one or two haha

  • omg vicodin! i had that once after laprascopic surgery and it got me so stoned but in a weird way that i was tripping so bad. i would have the weirdest dreams and i even got up out of bed and started hollering downstairs at no one. after 1 pill, i never took it ever again!

    thanks for linking up!

    OMG Id be mortified if said co worker was behind me. Ive done some pretty f’d up stuff on pain pills LOL

  • lol the coworker thing..that happened to me once but instead of saying something nice, i was saying how much of a moron he is so when i turned around and saw him, i said: that’s right! and it’s true and you know it! and stomped off. really, i was pretty embarrassed but i couldn’t show it!

    thanks for linking up!
