"How much is 5 grams on a teaspoon?"
That's not really the question was expecting when I answered the phone. Actually, I'm not sure if at any point you could expect that particular question.
The question arose from the fact that this woman had picked up a prescription for metronidazole vaginal gel the other day and had accidentally thrown out the applicators. Her logic was that, for whatever reason, a spoon would work just as well. She just didn't know how to measure out the five grams.
Now think about this for a moment. The woman has decided to shove a spoon up her yoo-hoo. With that sort of logic, I'd say it's a good bet it won't be a clean spoon either.
Needless to say the pharmacist and I were able to find extra applicators in the pharmacy, they do a lot of compounding at this store, and advised her to come in and pick them up for no charge.
Add that to yet another perplexing definition to spooning... albeit a far less fun one.
