This is a true story.
I didn’t do much today. I went downtown. I walked around. Got a snack at (gasp!) McDonald’s, the one tucked away behind the Wrigley Building on Michigan Avenue. I passed The Purple Pig, whereupon I slapped myself in the forehead for forgetting it was there and that would have probably made a tastier snack than the fast food I had.
Made my way back to my neighborhood in time for a light dinner, so I stopped for sushi at Hatsu Hana. Dinner was tasty and filling and cheap, as per usual.
After dinner, I stopped at Walgreens. Again. I think I’m actually dating this store. I go there almost every day. This time, I had to get some drain cleaner. And some chocolate. Also a bottle of Pepsi Throwback — mmme, real sugar. I cruised the hair care aisle for shampoo. I felt like I was cheating on my usual, Aveda Rosemary Mint Shampoo, flirting as I was with the bioINFUSION Professional Rosemary Mint Shampoo. I couldn’t help it! Aveda ain’t cheap! But all I wanted to sniff, just a little whiff.
I took a bottle of the drugstore rosemary mint shampoo off the shelf. Holding the bottle beneath my nose, I twisted off the cap. I sniffed. Unfortunately I also gave the bottle a bit of a squeeze so guess who got rosemary mint shampoo on her fingers, the front of her coat, and the tip of her fucking nose? Me. Had someone found me standing the aisle like that, they would have thought I was snorting it up like a drug addict.
Then again, it did smell awfully good.
