Citrus Caramel

06 Nov



Does this sound like a good scent for a Yankee candle?

No it does not.


Does it sound like a good flavor for a coffee creamer?

Not it does not.


What about a linen spray?

No again.


What it does sound like is something you might find in your carpet after a rowdy frat party.




Is the flavor…

My brilliant pharmacist chose to put in my 2 year olds medicine.


Care to guess how this ended up?


Mommy saturated in a white heinous smelling concoction.

Eyelashes tipped in sticky goo.

Spoon sticking out of adjacent potted plant

Creamy mess in a swirly design on the pottery barn table I paid way too much for.

(They really think highly of their merchandise)


It looked a little something like this:


What the hell is this?






This prompted a visit to the Walgreens.  Citrus Caramel in hand…

And I said to the dude.

“Have you not heard of Strawberry?”

    Citrus caramel?


    That sounds horrible!

    I remember once when my older daughter was quite small, she got pink-eye. They gave me these eye drops to put in her eyes three times a day, warning me that it might sting a little bit.

    It appeared to sting more than a little bit . . . I had to hold my daughter down and pin her to the floor as she flailed and squirmed to get away from me and the eye drops.

    So much screaming.

    So on day #2, I called the pharmacist to ask what the heck I was supposed to do, and he said, “Oh, we could give you the salve. You just smear that in the corner of her eyelids. No stinging at all.”


    I was so pissed.

    The salve?

    Worked great.

    Annoying medical profession.

      What is wrong with people? I mean they have been to enough school they should know better. I usually get those drops in like twice and it clears it up — THANK GOD.

      You wonder if they are just sitting back there bored thinking how they can screw with the moms.
