I’ve never been one that’s easily addicted to superficial items like drugs, smoking (when I used to), and alcohol and whatnot. But I will admit that I am somewhat addicted to my boyfriend, because right now he’s gone for the weekend and I feel a bit lost and am cranky beyond belief, and I’m also addicted to Lifesaver’s Wint-O-Green mints.
Yes, I am addicted to Wint-O-Green mints. I bought some the other day, because when you’re working retail if you’ve got bad breath you might as well just go hide out in receiving playing with overstock. Since buying the huge Lifesaver’s bag I think I’ve managed to finish a good 1/3 of the bag already. I don’t know what size it is, it’s not that huge but it’s larger than the bags you pick up at the register as you’re getting ready to check out.
At work I keep a nice quantity of them in my pocket for easy reach, as well as a plethora of them in my purse. I also pop them like a pill popper would pop Valium. Once I suck the life out of one, and then chew on it so I get that burst of tingly flavor, another one goes in my mouth. These things are delish. VERY delish. I’m even sucking on one as I write this, because I started to smell the Wint-O-Green (I have a little mini-bucket of them on my coffee table which is right next to my desk.)
Now if only these would somehow make up for the fact that I had the worst luck this weekend I would be doing a lot better instead of being cranky, miserable, and agitated that I’m going to be alone this weekend. The fact that my house is sans family(!!!) and Mark is gone for the weekend. Seriously, what the fuck kind of shit is that anyway? It’s just my luck that the weekend he decides to leave, I have the house to myself. Actually, I am pretty pissed off about it. So pissed off that I’m going to do absolutely nothing but go to work, come home, mope around the house, sleep, go to work and mope around some more. I’m also awaiting my monthly visit so if you can try to imagine those emotions BEFORE PMS sinks in… Well, let’s just say that the goodnight/xo e-mail I sent didn’t get a reply and that left me seething this morning.
At least I can find comfort in my Wint-O-Green Lifesaver’s.
