...which was no surprise to me...I always wake up after being sound asleep for several hours.
It's a habit I've developed over the years.
But this morning there was something different.......something......not nice.
The heavy, yucky feeling of tonsillitis in my throat.
I haven't had this in many, many years, but it's not the sort of feeling one forgets.
So after work, I went straight to the doctor who confirmed what I already knew and prescribed me some penicillin. I very rarely take antibiotics, for most of my life, I just don't get sick.
Off I went to the chemist and I now have in front of me a huge box of good old fashioned penicillin.
It isn't the more modern amoxycillin or whatever is the current version, which comes in the correct dosage supply for the two weeks it must be taken.
This is a big box of fifty.
The doctor did say I don't have to take all of them, but to be sure and take them for at least a fortnight.
Which I will do of course, but that will leave me with quite a few left over.
22 to be exact.
What does one do with left over penicillin?
I'll return them to the chemist.
Or perhaps string them together as a bracelet........
No, that's too much like work, I'll return them.
