Marriage 301, Lecture 520: My freakout vs SH's freakout
What makes SH freak out:
Dropping something that does not break or something that does break. Either kind of dropping prompts a freakout.
A tiny scratch on the car.
The basement flooding.
A wet newspaper.
A cat throwing up.
Anything that is against perfect order but that can be repaired or re-established easily.
What makes me freak out:
Getting my new migraine drug, Lyrica, in the mail from the mail order pharmacy and discovering that I have been charged a $100 co-pay. The co-pay on every other drug I have taken in the past ten years has been $20.
And guess what? You cannot return drugs to the pharmacy for your money back, even if the package is unopened. Thank you, Congress, for saving me from myself. Like I didn't have something else to use that $100 on. Like red boots.
SH's reaction to $100 drugs is to shrug and point out that he spent more than that on wine last week. Which does not make me feel better.
