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!
