The Facial Hair Emergency

Saturday, 3:01pm

Ring... ring....

"Thank YOU for calling Goofmart Pharmacy, where we nix Shingles with Shingrix, how may I help you?"

"Yeah, this is Doug from down the street. You have Vanish-kwah in stock?"

I have no idea what he's talking about. I ask him to spell it.


"Oh... no, I doubt that. I've never even dispensed it before." I type on the computer to make sure. "No, we don't have it. BUT you could order it and have it for your patient on MONDAY."

I have to keep reminding Doug of this fact because he always, ALWAYS calls us about ANYTHING he's out of stock on. We're past the point of it being overwhelmingly annoying. We just live with it now. We've given up.

"The lady needs it right away. She wants to start using it today!" he says, as he hangs up.

We don't have the medication. I doubt anyone does. Why? Because it's an obscure product to treat women with unwanted facial hair. Oh, I'm sure it started out as a drug that was actually for something important then they discovered it has this side effect and now it's marketed for that. So I read all about it. It takes 4-8 weeks before most people see any improvement.

Obviously getting the medication started on Saturday would make all the difference in the world.
