Office drug dealer. Getting a rep.

A carry a wide array of over the counter drugs (in small quantities) in my purse. If what ails you is not enough to keep you or send you home (or to the hospital) the chances are very good that I have a pill that will ease your pain or discomfort in by bag of tricks. A product of being a mommy first -- yes I do have a band-aid, and a tissue too -- and generally believing there is a pill for anything that ails you, and if one is good two is almost always better. My children will tell you that my answer to ever complaint is "take some Motrin." Come to think of it, I am kind of pusher at home too.
