A breakthrough in modern medicine if you ask me. While at Giant Eagle (our local grocery store) my wife picked up some cold meds and juice for the impending sickness that was coming over me on Monday. In the past I’ve become immune to the likes of codeine, all forms of Nyquil and pretty much anything that knocks you out. (editors note: except Tylenol P.M. shit just ain’t right).
The Mrs. pours a shot of this green looking spin-off. “No way, not gonna happen. It’s all in your head woman!” I sniff it to see if it smells like something that should be green. *sniff* Hey that’s familiar… *sniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiff* Holy shit it’s green Jager! I do the shot, logoff my PC around 9pm and roll into bed to see what happens. 15 minutes and nothing. 30 minutes… still nothing. 40min…zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Next thing I know it’s 8:30am and I have to get to work.
My ass was dragging most of the day and all I wanted was my bed. I come home, have dinner, watch some TV and go to bed. Wife pours the shot and I laid back to enjoy this sleep. WRONG. I swear to God I was having the worst acid trip ever. Something wasn’t right. I was in a deep sweat. I was dreaming that people were bugging me back in High School. I felt like I got hit by something hard and woke up. I kept seeing shadows. Every once in awhile I’d see trippy colors and then came the sound those of us know… WAH WAH WAH WAH WAH (I think that’s how you spell it). I woke up at 6:30am to my wife’s alarm going off. Now she’s starting to feel sick. She hates Jager so this cough medicine isn’t an option.
Plus side for me is that the meds seemed to work. Cough is working its way out just in time for me to go sit in a smoke filled bowling alley. Looks like I’ll be the one on chicken soup duty.
