Drip

Before we leave the house these days,
We have the same refrain,
The thing we want to know is just,
Is it really going to rain?

When venturing outside our door,
Before we take a ramble,
Will we stay dry or will we get wet?
We have to take that gamble.

Must go out to the postbox,
A healthy walk away,
Before I leave, will I stay dry?
Or will I get washed away?

I have a foolproof plan, you know,
I’d share it if I could,
But alas there are no other heads
Can fit inside my hood.

If I have luck, I’ll get out there
and back before you blink,
Otherwise I have a fear
That all my clothes will shrink!

Oh, and thank you to Jennifer at Paperkutzs for allowing me to use her image.


Two years ago, I recounted the time when my local pharmacy messed up. /the thing that annoyed me was that rather than showing any interest in correcting the problem, in making things better, they doubled-down.

We bemoan the fact that societies are becoming increasingly litigious, but I think that when bodies refuse to improve voluntarily, the only way to ensure they improve at all is by hitting their bank balance.

Pharmacy Blunders

This morning, a friend of mine had posted a story he’d picked up from the BBC. Some pharmacy (in the UK) had issued a chap with the wrong meds, the chap subsequently died. A similar thing happened to me once. It was only because I check all my meds as they arrive that I spotted … Continue reading “Pharmacy Blunders”
