Rip Van Rasreth

So, um, yeah… here’s a little tip for all you folks who don’t take drugs very often. When you’re suffering from a runny nose and stuff, make sure you ask your spouse (the one who’s been taking antihistamines since she was 5) before you reach up into the medicine cabinet and start popping pills.

On Friday night, I decided to forego my usual “just suffer with it” routine and take something to relieve my symptoms. Knowing that I get sleepy even on DayQuil, and that NyQuil is reserved for when I need a good hallucinogen, I reached for something called “Dayhist Allergy”.

I just woke up.

When she finally looked at them, my wife said something like, “Holy crap. That stuff knocks me out!” Apparently the “day” in dayhist does not refer to the fact that you take it in the daytime because it is non-drowsy. It means that its power lasts for a day (which translates to a lost weekend for me).

But I haven’t had the sniffles all weekend!

    And, your partner was very brave to undergo the cryogenics.

    You see, Mister Rasareth, we have been trying to shield you from the initial shock of exactly how long you have been asleep.

    Hey Sol-

    It’s me Jenn (Klutzygirl), remember me from Orlando Metroblog. I cannot believe I signed up again to write for them, watch I get kicked off yet again for the 2nd time, for the lack of writing. Anyways, I’ve been lurking on your site for a couple of weeks and I added you to my blogroll so I can check your blog from time to time.

    I’m writing you to ask a favor… I have on my blog a Death survey I have to do for a class. It’s 10 easy questions, you can email me the answers you choose and or leave your answers on the comment section of that blog note. If you choose not to, thats cool too, I know death and some people do not mix, let alone talking about your very own. Thanks and Peace Out!! Take Care – Jenn
