Gravity's Rainbow

Drugs vs. Shoes, or I really am a responsible adult


Today I spent $250 on a 4 month supply of birth control.  That’s $750 a year.  Before the pharmacy at my school closed because of budget cuts, it was $540 a year.  Unfortunately, I can’t find a prescription discount card that covers my pills.

Despite the outrageous cost (you’d think the pills with less hormone in them would be cheaper.  They aren’t.) it’s worth the money – without the pills I spent a week every month feeling like I’m in labor.

But I wish I could have spent that money on these instead:

  1. I about lost it when I had to pay $200 for a 4 month supply. I also have been dreaming of some black knee high boots. But I have no idea how to wear them and what kind to buy…

    • As for what kind to buy, I have two requirements: they have to make my heart beat faster without hurting my feet. I’d start here.

      And black knee high boots are very very versatile. Over jeans, or with tights and a skirt are my usual outfits.


    They are the softest things on the planet inside, and oh so warm. And I want them:( Even if they aren’t beautiful. But they are called Moon Boots. Which is cute…

I'm listening!
