Got Drugs?

Friday, December 19th, 2003 • 4 Comments on Got Drugs?

Sickness struck me down.  For the past couple of days my idea of a good time has been flannel pajamas and Nyquil.  Woooo.  Party party.  Thankfully, it is not the F-word.  It seems to be just a mild cold combined with a general worn-down-ness that comes from doing too much in too short a span of time (otherwise known as Martha-itis).  I’m taking it easy (yes, me) and I’ll be okay.  I wan’t joking when I said I can’t get sick until January.  I will take this as a warning and get some rest. 

Speaking of which, what have they done to Nyquil?  I can remember when a dose of Nyquil would knock me out for twelve hours and I’d wake up the next day feeling pleasantly floaty-like.  Now I take two pretty green capsules and wake up three times in eight hours (which is my normal sleep pattern).  What happened to the good drugs??  I even swapped to Allergy and Cold Benadryl, which used to wipe me out so bad I couldn’t function the next day.  Not anymore.  Now I sleep hard for a couple of hours and wake up in the middle of the night.  Bah humbug.  I want the good drugs.  How am I supposed to get well if I can’t get any sleep?

    I don’t think it’s the drugs sweetie, I think it’s you. We seem to build a tolerance to the good stuff after awhile.  But you could always call your doc and ask for some good cough syrup, after all there’s always a silver lining, right?

    Prescription drugs just seem so… hardcore.  I want my OTC drugs to do the job!

    Prescription drugs… hardcore, HA! HA! HA!

    The drugs we need can only be found on the streets, sis!

    We’ll have to ask Nick for the nearest connection.  He’d know, right?

    That’s mean.  Nick doesn’t have connections.  Trust me, I’ve asked. grin
