Seriously !?!?!? This could only happen to me

So we are back from our vacations and I feel like I need a vacation from my vacation. but this post is not about our vacation. This post is about my stupidity right before coming home on fathers day. I woke up sunday morning with a horrible headache, probably from dehydration since I drank almost no water while at Disneyland. so at 6:30 am I grabbed the advil that was sitting on our hotel night stand and popped four in my mouth followed by a big glass of water. I was sure this would do the trick and enable me to be the nice wife my hubby deserved on fathers day. after taking my water and Advil fix I packed a few things to get ready to go home and went down and got matt some not very good continental breakfast in bed. When I returned he was awake and asked me if I had needed to take sleep aid last night. I said no, why? and he says because the cap was off and he points to the bottle of "advil" I had just taken. All the blood rushed from my face. I turned absolutely white. I had just taken 4 sleep aids at 6:30 in the morning. I frantically ran into the bathroom and started ramming my toothbrush down my throat to induce vomiting, but that just made me cough and my eyes water. so I there I sat on the bathroom floor with my toothbrush in hand and four sleep aids in my belly. I was defeated. Yesterday was probably the worst day of my whole life. could barely keep my eyes open let alone walk. My nephew had to push me in a wheelchair at the airport. I wish now I would have taken a picture of how doped up I looked, but all I could think about was closing my eyes and laying down. I didnt care where I was, or where I was going, or who was watching me, I just wanted to sleep.
lesson learned: look at the label before popping 4 pills in your mouth. seriously you would think that would just be something known, not something that needed to be learned.

It wouldn't happen just to you...I once popped 3 sleeping pills in my mouth the first time I took them (I had no idea how strong they were). I had gone for a 5 mile run and then started a fast that night right after taking them. Some nice guys in my single ward literally had to carry me to my roommates car. I slept for 20 hours straight. It was horrible...I'm just glad you had your husband with you. Imagine doing it when only you and your little girl were at home!!!

I'm sure that wasn't very funny to you. But I sure was laughing reading about it. Do you think you could put me in your suitcase and take me on one of your vacations with you.
