Midol Conspiracy

Ladies you will understand where I am coming from.

A few weeks ago when we were in the Dominican Republic there was a need for me to take my Midol.

While we were on the plane I had Sail dig for one in my tote bag. I thought he was going to spill them all over the damn floor and I about had a cow but finally managed to wrestle one out of the package and put it back in my bag, so I thought.

By the time we got to the hotel a few hours later, well really about 5 to 6 hours later, I needed another one and opened up a new pack and placed them on the sink. We went to dinner with our friends. We came back a few hours later from dinner and clubbing and the bed was turned down with soft music playing (the maids had been there) and I asked Sail to grab me another one. Okay, by this time, I guess you can figure out, I had some bad cramps. Well Sail went over to the bathroom sink and said "Honey, they are not here" I was like "Yes they are, right there by the Maalox" (Okay so I had gas too- I am old-what can I say?) Well they were GONE!!!!

We ripped open every damn suit case we brought and couldn't find them and I was convinced the maids took em. For what reason I dont know so I had to result to using up ALL of my friend's Motrin over the next few days.

Sail was going on a fishing trip our last full day there (Thursday) so Wednesday afternoon we went down to the pharmacy to get him some Dramamine just as a preventive for him not to get sea sick. Well we didn't see any on the shelves so asked the clerk for some and from under the counter she pulls out a strip of them out of a plastic bag and wants to sell them to us for a $1. At this point, I was convinced my Midol was back there somewhere and they were selling them for a $1 as well. Sail of course just laughed at me and asked what did I think, that they were taking everyone's medications and selling them? LOL YES THAT IS WHAT I WAS THINKING, because damnit where was my MIDOL????

Anyways, guess what? The other day we found it smashed in one of the pockets of the suitcases we took. I am still convinced the maid did it. LOL@!!!

What do you think?

Well, I would think that under the stress of the cramp's you might of sub-concisely put them back in your suit case instead of leaving them on the sink..!!...But then again, no one will every really know..!!

It might just be the part of the D.R. you were in...I used to live in the Dominican Republic(Santiago) and we were frequently put on Midol alerts. I got really good at hiding them so they wouldn't disappear in middle of the night.
What part of the Dominican Republic were you in? I loved every bit of my time there! How exciting and fun you got to go, especially when you were able to experience the underground network of cramp relievers anonymous.
I now have my own secret Midol stash...let me know the next time you head out to a foreign land and I'll hook you up!

que tengas un bien noches!
