Who do I have to blow to get Kool-Aid in this fucking city?
I'm sick. Have been since late last week. I was out sick on Monday and Tuesday. Still feel like crap today, but deadlines are deadlines, and while I'm expected to cover for others when they're out, no one does my work when I'm out sick.
But that's a whole other bitchfest.
Anyhoo . . . when I'm sick I want a few things. One, grilled cheese sandwiches (this is assuming I'm not so sick that I can't eat). Two, Campbell's Cream of Tomato soup. And three, Kool-Aid.
Now, usually when I'm sick, the last thing I want to do is cook, so I've relegated the first two items to the happy days of youth when my mom would take care of me when I was sick. However, Kool-Aid is a piece of cake. Tear open packet, mix with water, and drink the artificially-flavored goodness.
The hard part, however, is finding some goddamn Kool-Aid.
My own fault, I suppose. I'm picky. I want sugar-free Kool-Aid. And it has to be in individual packets. I went to five stores last night to try to find some because I'd run out of my stash at home. Five stores. In the cold. When I was sick. And not one of the places had Kool-Aid.
So long story short, that is why I'm in a miserable mood today. That and having to be at work when I should be sleeping.
