    I know, I know, I know.  It has been a long time but I've been busy with other things.  Nevertheless, to understand my story today there are a few things you need to know up front.

    First, my wife and I really don't take that many medications.  Maybe a blood pressure pill once a day and a baby aspirin.  That's about it.  But, we do have certain medications that we take once in awhile for reasons I'll explain in a moment.

    For instance, once in awhile I get a little unsettled and a low dose Xanax helps.  Honestly, I maybe take 10 or 12 a year.  I joke with my doctor when I go in and say that I need my annual Xanax prescription.

    Next, you need to understand that we are planning to go to Costa Rica for my older son's wedding and we want to make sure we have all the meds. we'll need being out of the country and all.  So just to make sure we're prepared in case we pick up some bug floating around in what surely will be a germ infested airplane, we wanted to bring an antibiotic.

    The last thing you need to know is that I am 60 years old.

    So when I went to my doctor for a routine physical I made sure to ask him for all of the prescriptions we would need.

    Today I went to the pharmacy to drop off all my prescriptions and not wanting to overwhelm them I just brought three.  All were written on the same day.  One was for Xanax.  One was for Viagra, and one was for an antibiotic.  I didn't think much of it at the time but driving away I wondered what the people in the pharmacy thought about this.  They must have thought that I wanted to get really mellowed out and have a bunch of sex but that I must have some sort of infectious disease.

    I wonder if they'll remember the Viagra prescription when a few days from now I bring in the one for an anti-inflammatory.
