It sucks because I am in withdrawal...
I have the shakes. Anxiety. Beads of sweat collect on my brow when I realise my ever-diminishing stash will be completely used up way too soon.
Rationing isn't an option.
Neither is going cold turkey.
I have to find another source.
Another pusher to fill my dependency.
My need for the White Powder.
At work they know my addiction... the White Powder I can't do without each and every day.
And they feed it.
Because I am the only one around who still uses REAL sugar in their coffee.
All the other staff use Splenda or Sugar Twin. But not me. That crap makes me nauseous. I need the real thing.
So whenever there are leftovers from rounds or meetings, the extra cups, coffee, creamers and stir sticks go to the Staff Room for everyone to share.
Except the White Powder.
It lands on my desk without me even asking....all for ME. And me alone. I hoard it in my desk drawer and dip into it whenever I need a fix.
But dammit... during July and August, rounds are cancelled. Meetings are rare.
And my stockpile dwindles to nothing. Frantically I search in vain for just a few more packs.
Oh no.... *sob*.
Don't panic, Maureen.
Remember, you have a reserve at home you can bring into work to tide you over till September.
