8-pointed Star

Uh huh. You don't say.

Yesterday, upon the recommendation of redblack32, I went in search of Calmoseptine Ointment. The web informed me that Walgreens carries the product and Walgreen's own website indicated that the pharmacy nearest my house had some in stock. So I went there after work and hunted through the shelves in the pharmacy area. After much searching, I found the section with calamine lotion, poison ivy remedies and the like, but no Calmoseptine. After reading the labels of every product in the entire module* for the third time, I gave up and went to ask the pharmacist. I showed her the note I'd typed into my phone as it had the exact spelling (and I have no idea how to pronounce Calmoseptine); she looked it up on her computer. After consulting her screen for a while, she nodded and then disappeared into the stacks of shelves behind the counter. A short while later she returned with a small jar and rang me for $8 and change. As she bagged my purchase, she remarked that the pharmacy rarely sells any. I'm still shaking my head over that one. How much can they expect to sell when it's hidden away with the prescription drugs and you have to know to ask for it?

* See maddiec24 -- I have been listening! (LOL)

Also, redblack32, so far I'm quite impressed with the lotion. My skin/ribs haven't bothered me at all today. I think I'll even be able to return to dance class Saturday morning.
