Yesterday I stayed home and mostly took the day off. It was very rejuvenating. Spent a lot of not-doing-much time. The only downside is that I burned the roof of my mouth pretty badly on a microwave burrito, and it has made eating difficult. Thankfully the mouth heals quickly.

I took the bus to work today. I discovered a new route that doesn't make me wait 20 minutes at the park-n-ride for the shuttle from work (I can instead take the bus all the way in to Boulder station, then hop the bus to Longmont & get off a hundred feet from work), but the shuttle was right there when the bus pulled in, so I took it anyway.

The new plan is to take the bus (which has air conditioning) on days when it is really hot, because the minivan does not have AC. Plus, I will save money on gas.

We realized at bedtime that Greg was out of sudafed, so I drove to the nearest 24-hour Walgreens, which is all the way out in freakin' Thornton. I curse everyone ever involved with the creation of crystal meth, for making it so much harder to buy effective decongestants. Curse yooooou!

I just worry that before too long it will move from being difficult to buy pseudoephedrine to being impossible.

There is a chemical pathway from ephedra to crystal meth. Entangling pseudoephedrine with red tape means a steady rate of meth dealers slipping up when they arrange purchases and then they can be pounced on . Choking the supply completely, however, will only change how meth is made.

Small comfort, I know.

But at a certain level of red tape, it really is unavailable. I needed it when I was in California, and it wasn't possible, because it was on a Sunday, when the pharmacist wasn't in.

*sigh*
