Drugs, Naps and Other Scary Things



Uhhhh, remember my last post which mentioned I was going to bed early...well that didn't really happen. When I went to lie down, that started the a waterfall from my nose. It was horrible, and the pain in my head was nearly unbearable. So I got up after awhile and watched Monsters, Inc. Seemed appropriate with my life revolving around the old Orange and Black at the moment. So I tried the sleeping event again. Nope, no good. So I got up and walked to the convenience store in search of decongestant. Well, you can buy alot of things at Family Mart, such as sushi, ice cream, liquor, boxer shorts, neck ties, socks, porn movies, but you can't buy decongestant. So I came home and tried watching another movie...this time it was Robin Williams Live on Broadway. I added some futons to my sleeping pads and a whole bunch of pillows to keep my head elevated. I did fall asleep at about 1 am. I awoke at 4. I had slept in such a way as to keep my mouth open, so I could breath, but it pushed my jaw out of wack. When I awoke my jaw joint was throbbing and obviously swollen. So I ate an egg sandwich, took my very last Aleve and finished off Robin Williams. I spent my day, napping, going in search of drugs, shopping and doing more Halloween Party preparations. I did find some decongestant which has just kicked in in the last hour so I am not nearly so drippy. I'm sure I'm still a drip, but my nose has stopped running at least. Wish me luck with the parties. I'm gonna need it.

If I were with you I'd give you applesauce and crackers and 7UP. Would sending thoughts of chicken soup violate vegetarian rules? Mum

You could send thoughts of vegetarian chicken soup...there is such a thing, but it tastes like crap...so send thoughts of Progresso Lentil Soup. That's my new comfort food.

Hey Nat! I hope you feel better. I felt your pain in another way. Last night I had the worst tooth ache. Luckily, I had some Orajel and Ibuprofen on hand. Soon I was in La La Land until the alarm sounded and it was time to get ready for work. Bummer! By the way, why do you have to give 16 Halloween parties? Good luck with that!
