Thursday Inconveniences or The Simple Things That Make Life Better

People walking past my desk will be treated to more unusual sight than normal.  The will see me sniffing a bag of tea.

Technically, it is not tea.  It is pure peppermint leaves. 

I left my lip balm and my decongestant at home.  I was certain I picked them up and tossed them in the work bag.  But they are not there so they must be on a counter or dresser or the table.  Someplace I might of set them down while getting my stuff together this morning.

I have been having a terrible time breathing yesterday and today.  But not all is lost.  I have a box of Stash Peppermint Herbal Tea.  To get relief, for my nose at least, I can hold a bag up to my nose and breathe through it until the side that is blocked starts to ease up some.

This will not help my dry lips.  That will have to wait another entire hour before I can get to the drug store to buy another tube of lip balm.  And then life will be good again.

Or at least par for the course.
