    Back up? What’s a back up? Is that where the beeper goes off?

    Skip Walgreens. Go for CVS or Red Tide (I mean Rite Aid).

    If he is buying his deodorant at Walgreens, that explains why he can afford to buy only one at a time.

    Sitting on the right side of the table didn’t occur to you, Monty?

    Case in point: at a local Indian-owned gas station/convenience store, a little six-pack of Oreos sells for 79 cents. Walgreens sells the same thing for 99 cents (25% more).

    Now read about my latest horror story with Walgreens. I needed to get 5mg predinosolone tablets. I called around. No one had them. I called Walgreens (my last resort, after my prior experience with them losing my prescription!). They said they had it. I clarified, “I am looking for predinosolone, not prednisone”. They confirmed. I went and placed the order and sat down; “20 minutes”, they said; we will call you. After 40 minutes passed, I asked them what was going on with my order. Turns out it WAS done, they didn’t bother to call me. I paid and started to leave. I figured I should check it. It was prednisone, and not predinosolone! I walked back and they were going to fix it. Then it turns out that they do not carry predinosolone in tablet form, only liquid form, so they had to contact my doctor (who had already gone home) to change the prescription. Finally it was straightened out. What started as a “20 minute wait” turned into 3 hours!

    Monty disappoints if he can’t squeeze a few more swipes out of that “used up” deodorant. And why didn’t he go to the local pharmacy first and then to dine with Moonie, Gretch, and whoever the other female is?

    Monty… For a person who is allegedly so pedantic and geeky, you really should stock up on extras of things like this. When you start your last package, that’s the time to buy more. Ditto for all other household non-perishables (toilet paper, toothpaste, detergent, etc.)

    You really really do not ever want to find out that you’ve run out of TP!!

    A Pharmacy chain in the US, a UK term would be calling it the chemist’s, the shop also carries beauty aids and minimal food items and household supplies. The place is generally considered expensive.

    We have one of those magnetised shopping lists on our fridge door. I tied a pencil onto a string and tied it to a clip magnet and set the magnet above the list. We have no excuse for not adding items to the shopping list.

    I use Walgreens because one is right in the nearest mini-mall. I buy vitamins and even face creams at Vitacost.com online because they have free delivery, all the products I use, and even give FURTHER discounts for reshipping on a schedule. Check out their prices on basic stuff like Kaolic (garlic) capsules.

    A type of large box pharmacy with beauty products, other home products (laundry soap, toothpaste, and some food). Use mainly by we tourists to the USA as landmarks to figure out where we are in the city.

    What surprised me a few years ago, was the giant neon Pink Elephant Car Wash in Seattle – is still there – I think the last time I saw it before this century was in the mid 1970’s. Nice to know some things never change.
