Again, it’s all about me

Last week, Brandon began feeling like he was headed down the road to sickness, so he made the first trip to Walgreen’s he could and loaded up on Vitamin C tablets and other immunity enhancers. We both dosed up for a couple days, because that’s what we do around here.

Not only is it unpleasant to be sick, we just flat can’t afford it around here. The farm doesn’t offer sick days.

We hadn’t loaded up on Vitamin C in a few days, as we were both feeling in good shape, but Brandon came home announcing he could feel it coming on again, so we broke out all our goods to load up. We had pizza with a side of Vitamin C for supper. Try it sometime.

Anyway, we take our Vitamin C in the form of these tablets called Emergen-C that you dissolve in water. So we were both filling our plates with food, dropping in our tablets, and gathering everything to head to the table.

Other than a quick stir in his glass, Brandon was ready to sit down and eat. I dropped my tablet in, then headed to the pizza. I looked over and saw Brandon stirring in my Emergen-C for me.

“Oh, thanks. That’s nice of you.”

“Yeah, it really has nothing to do with nice. I just thought it would speed you up in being ready to eat and I’m hungry. So really, it’s just all about me.”

He said something about joking, but it wasn’t very convincing.
