She minces no words.

Dont Mince Words


Posted on April 18, 2004 by Marna

You know you are getting old when you go to Tijuana for drugs, not tequila. Today was my first trip to Tijuana and it was a drug run. No pictures with donkeys, ponchos, and sombreros. My friend was on a mission to lower her Rx costs. I was along for the ride, and possibly shopping.

You know you are getting old when you pass up Vicodin and Paxil and go straight for the 30 gram tube of Retin-A. For $5, I had to get it, just like the $4 liters of pure vanilla. I crossed back over the border half hoping to get searched. “But Mr. Customs Officer, I need to maintain my baby smooth skin and bake cookies,” I would of said.

You know, next time I think I’ll work my way up to Tylenol 3.
