She has worked four full days as a nanny. Thirty years old, two degrees, full time job as a researcher for a major institution, married.
I come home from having lunch. She looks a bit out of it, her eyes a bit glassy.
Fine. I took some of Pearlsky’s valium.
Any particular reason?
I had a stomach ache.
How much did you take?
Why don’t you go home early today since you are not feeling well.
She must have thought it was ok since she just openly told me. She took neither Pearlsky’s Pepcid nor Prevacid, both “stomach” medicines (nor the Tums, Mylanta, Pepto, etc. we have). She left her cell phone here.
My stomach hurts.
