Conversation with my husband
Me: How many miligrams of ibuprofen can I take?
Him: At once?
Me: Yeah.
Him: Do you have a headache or something?
Me: Yeah, and I've got Motrin.
Him: Well, why don't you-
Me: The good drugs are at home.
Him: Well you've got a bottle of Aleve in your car
[note: Admittedly, Aleve works better. Also, Seth doesn't know what a pain it is for me to get down to the garage since he's never been to my office, but it involves two elevators and half a flight of stairs. Then back up the half a flight of stairs, up one elevator, past a guard to swipe my badge, then up another elevator]
Me: I don't want to go to my car.
Him: You can take 800 miligrams at once.
Me: I took 400 and it didn't work.
Him: You can take the other 400.

Seriously... I mean, yeah, motrin doesn't work for me. I'll admit that. But couldn't he have just answered my question? Sometimes it's not entirely convenient to have a pharmacist for a husband. :)

Current Mood: amused amused

He was, of course, simply trying to help you solve the problem underlying your question. He's a man, that's what men try to do. At least the good ones. He's also a pharmacist, and again, that's what pharmacists try to do. At least the good ones.

Sometimes that means it takes a little longer to get the answer to the question. But at other times you can get the answer to a better question than the one you asked.

Of course. I made my post with nothing but good humor. Honest.

He was, of course, correct, the best thing would have been to get something more effective. He knows I never take Motrin, so he must have known it was a desperate act to get some relief.

ah, Advil works good for me. but ya,the trip you have to take to get to your car sounds like the one i'd have to take to get to my car when i did temp work at the FDA in Rockville.
