The aspirin are all gone. Analysis?

I rang in the new year in 1998 in NYC with my soon-to-be-ex-girlfriend Tina Sumpter, visiting her friend Sarah Rogacki at Columbia University.

I was wandering around Manhattan with a horrible headache on 31 Dec 1997, so we stopped in a drugstore and I bought a bottle of 250 generic aspirin.

I finished off the bottle this morning. Ignoring the aspirin that I may have donated to third-party headaches, that means I've had 125 headaches in 61 months, or about two headaches per month.

I find this interesting because it sure seems like I've had more headaches than that in the last five years.
