In the "What a Dumbass" category

The dumbass in question would be me. You wouldn't believe what I just did. I mean, I deserve the biggest moron on the web award, I swear it. I got up this morning, washed my face and brushed my teeth as usual, splashing to and fro on my bathroom sink like it's a bird bath. Nothing out of the ordinary, I'm a messy sink user as a rule. Then I dried my face, took out my paper cup and filled it with water in order to take my pills. I carefully moved the Worthless Pet's paper cup of water (don't ask) on top of the medicine cabinet to ensure that I didn't drink out of the wrong cup. All OK so far, right?

Then I took out the big bottle of Metformin out of the medicine cabinet, opened the frigging childproof cap, and spilled the entire bottle into the sink, around the sink, and into my cup of water. Holy shit! I tossed the cup of water containing about 25 pills into the garbage, gathered as many of the pills that were still dry as I could, wiped the sink off and then put about 25 more pills into the dry spot and......

dried them on low with the hair dryer. I did! The Boy came in and saw me and gave me a look like I was the biggest dufuss he's ever seen. He did help by picking up the pills still on the floor and reminding me to please put on my glasses so I could at least see what I was doing.

So I'm up in the bathroom for at least a half hour carefully blow drying my pills. I did save at least half the bottle, but still. What a dumbass.

Don't sweat it. I do that kind of thing all the time. My wife calls me the absent-minded professor because I'm always spazzing out: dropping things, forgetting things, wandering around without a clue.

It's what makes you unique. And you're SO cool for sharing it here. You're not alone, Margalit. Far from it.
