Finally got the nerve to go to Rite-Aid to hunt and gather. Right after I walked in, a girl -- dressed EXACTLY like me -- was behind, and hurried ahead of me. We wore identical baseball caps, white t-shirts...jeans. So of course, I noticed her. Anyway, I'm all minding my business, when I hear this whispered conversation about "...her hair is in a white baseball cap, pulled up in a ponytail..." on a policeman's radio.


I was all paranoid, thinking they knew that *I* was the one who told the lesbian officer she was unfit to wear a uniform, running down -- in my head -- what it could POSSIBLY BE that they were after me for. As I rounded a corner, FIVE big police officers were all "EXCUSE ME. WE NEED TO SEE YOUR I.D."


I fumbled around and sure enough, it was in my glove compartment. I did, however, have a business card thing with my editor-in-chief bidness cards, and showed them THAT, and told them I could go out to the car and get other I.D., BUT WHAT IS GOING ON???

Then, one of the younger officers FLEW down the aisle towards the pharmacy. They said "Nevermind. Sorry we inconvenienced you" and like handcuffed her, and she burst into tears, trying to explain ... SOMETHING.


Anyway, since I am nosy (and a reporter), I cozied up to the pharmacist and found out she's a resident/intern/U.A.B.? student who's been writing her own prescriptions for hydrocodone. OOO GOOODYYYYYY. HAVE A NICEEEEEEEEEEE LONG JAIL STAY, WHILST YOU LOSE ANY CHANCE OF A FUTURE.

Hahaha. Mkay. That was SO NOT FUNNY. But still. WHAT ARE THE FREAKIN' CHANCES?!?!? It IS just me. No one wanted to tell me, but yeah. I'm SO freakin' jinxed.

Uh. Still in shock. I'm just sayin'...I need a lil nap after all that, and the death trip home on the scary doughnut.


You're a Confident Chica

You're a total superstar - and you know it
Even if no one else does (in which case you'll remind them)
You hate to admit that you're wrong... even to yourself
Your life is great - and you're thankful for every great thing you have

Are You Confident YOU MIGHT go to jail for looking like someone else?


Yeah. Okay. WHATEVER.

Weirddddddd. Freaky.

Try to find out her name :)

The pharmacist (who I KNOW, incidentally cuz she gives me my aspirin) would've told me and I *almost* asked. But watching that chick just bawling made me feel bad, so I didn't :/ It was sad. :|

The pharmicist told me doctors were the worst abusers (of that drug) of anyone. Weeeeeeird. I thought nurses were. Hmm. Maybe she was a nurse? She was definitely much younger than moi.

Just a tip... Try to be more psychic and not dress like psychos before you go out...
Aug. 7th, 2004 12:46 pm (UTC)

I was dressed CASUALLY. How do you figure it was 'psycho-like'????

Um...fyi -- there's a HUGE difference between (most) psychos vs. addicts.

And I love this ensemble; am complimented on it often.
Aug. 7th, 2004 12:59 pm (UTC)
You weren't dressed psycho, you were dressed like the psycho, or she was dressed like you, i guess it depends on how you look at it. In any case, at least they arrested her...
Aug. 7th, 2004 01:01 pm (UTC)
She was sad, but she didn't look like a psycho. I've SEEN psychos; she wasn't one. Probably a stressed out med student who got hooked on pain killers. That's my guess (as they ARE at the top of the list for 1. suicide; 2. divorce; 3. drug/alcohol abuse.

At any rate, I always wear this combo (note that I own about 758273295789 white t-shirts, and tonsssssss of cooleous blue jeans...the white hat is tres cool, according to my friends, so I'm thinking there was nothing wrong with THAT).

What gets me is the vast age difference. THE STUPIDTY. I felt sorry for her; but then again, people like her are the reason why people like my dad (and anyone ELSE suffering chronic pain) can't get medication. That IS bad.
Aug. 7th, 2004 01:20 pm (UTC)
Damn. And that's all I have to say. O_O
Aug. 7th, 2004 01:23 pm (UTC)
I lurrrrrrve your new icon!!! And yeah, I was all 'HUH???'...I swear I thought they'd tracked me down as "the chick who BEGGED the lesbian cop to take her to jail AFTER telling her she was UNFIT TO WEAR A UNIFORM."

Ahahahahaha. *cough*

The employees and I had a nice lil laugh after that, though. One of them actually approached IMMEDIATELY after the one police took off after the chick, and was saying "nooooooo no she comes here ALL THE TIME." LOL :-D
Aug. 7th, 2004 01:37 pm (UTC)
Aye. The first one (I think) had all that baby tawk on it (errrrr you know how I feel about all that), and I *think* the HUGE TEXT. LOL. :-D

*runs to check numero dos*

This so reminds me of the comment I just made to curefreak about certain people attracting pockets of super-concentrated bizarre-ness more than others...looks like I need to add you to that list! :-)
Glad they didn't give you TOO hard a time though, I suppose it could have been worse...they could have really hassled you about the ID or something.
And the person they busted...throwing away life for some super-spiked pain pills? Oi.
Aug. 8th, 2004 01:30 am (UTC)
No, no.
If they'd 'harrassed' me (and ESPECIALLY since I was innocent) I would've SO SUED and they know I could. LOL. So er, no...of course only the 'guilty' wouldn't have showed I.D., so er, I showed 'em. :)
Aug. 9th, 2004 10:10 pm (UTC)
Re: No, no.
Yeah, the ones that contest it are usually the guilty ones. :-)
Aug. 10th, 2004 04:14 am (UTC)
Re: No, no.
I dunno...although I was smirking then (to be involved in SUCH FUN)...hahaha...and am laughing NOW, since you responded to this again, it's bringing me back to Rite-Aid, remembering that lil scenario.


I wouldn't have sued. The problem with this freakin' country are frivolous lawsuits.

Mkay...let's look at ME for a second (ok, you don't HAVE to but I'm just sayin'...). I was hit by a car going 65mph; a dentist used what a surgeon described as an 'unclean instrumnet' (a very EXPENSIVE dentist), and I was rushed in for surgery the day after; my DOCTOR hit on me (in a big, serious way); my EDITOR DID, TOO (very well-respected newspaper here); and not once did I file lawsuit when I had every freakin' right under the sun to do so.

And THAT doesn't include all the other times I could've but didn't. Although the man who hit me SHOULD'VE been sued (and yes, my ex-husband retained an attorney; he went to jail for a longggggggg time), as far as *I* am concerned, all the others would've truly been frivolous. I was insulted by sexual harrassment. SO? I'm just as bad (if you consider language and distasteful jokes). If somebody touches me that I don't WANT TO, you can bet *I* took care of all that. I don't need an attorney to fight for a few dollars, when I could break someone's hand :-D

Anyway...it's too early. What? LOL.

Eye see, Open your eyes
Creeping Through The Cellar Door

Latest Month

June 2019


Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
