She noted that sexually transmitted diseases are increasing as something the teams have been treating in Haiti.
I inquired as to how many condoms we have left. "we ran out" was the answer.
So now I have 48 hours to score some condoms, big time.
I started my day by appealing to some more local Whole Foods for lozenges and vitamins, then I called Planned Parenthood of Illinois, Chicago chapter. They were willing to sell me a box of a thousand latex condoms at their cost, $65.00.
I headed down there as quickly as I could and found myself in what appeared to be the planned parenthood office.
The patients in the waiting room were not what I would have expected; older men and women dressed conservatively reading readers digest.
As I asked for the box of condoms that was set aside for me, we all realized that I had walked into the wrong office. I was actually in a dental office adjacent to the planned parenthood.
I managed to walk out with my dignity, and head into the correct office where the box of "Proper Attire" condoms was waiting for me (that is really the name).
I stopped at the local whole foods and was given 30 packs of zinc lozenges and 10 boxes of powdered children's vitamins.
I scored big today!
