I haven't been here much...

because I have been sick. I have had a dreadful cold and then I took TWO doses of generic Nyquil at the appropriate times but it knocked me out for pretty much 24 hours. I am just finally coming out from under the effect of the Nyquil, (I guess I should really call it Nighttime Cold & Flu Relief, but really that takes WAY too long to type!)

I have had crazy dreams while under the effect of the Nyquil, in the last Miss Teffers and I were more eccentric than we are now. (We were wearing polyester dresses for heavens sake.) The good news about that dream was that Stephanie had been injured in some kind of accident but it wasn't a life altering injury HOWEVER, the insurance company was jumping through hoops to make a multi-million dollar payout that we were having set up in a trust that would pay us several thousand dollars a month AND Teffers was completely recovered from her injury so we were in tall cotton which was good because we had a house FULL of dogs, six or seven and they were rowdy varmints. I am glad I only have ONE dog to deal with. I wouldn't do well with several. In the past I have had 4 or so but I was younger and had more energy then. Oh well, despite the dogs I would love to have a multi-million dollar trust but I wouldn't want Steffie to be hurt to get it. It gets rough when you have to buy cold medicine and aren't sure if your budget will handle it. Several thousand dollars a month sounds really good when you get to that point if you know what I mean.

Oh well, it was a dream and my reality is that I live on a fixed income. I cringe every time I hear the Republicans talking about messing with Social Security and SSDI. If I COULD work full time I'd be out there doing it. I could make 3 or 4 times what I get in disability payments but instead I just get by. It really stinks to be disabled. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. If anything happens to Teffers or I, I don't know how the other one will make it financially. There isn't enough money to go around.

Well, this is a cheery post...this is what a nasty cold and Nyquil will do to you. You write about icky stuff. I don't want to write about icky stuff but the only thing I can think of to write about instead is about a former lover of mine and that would take too long. It is one of those typical love stories, gal loves guy, guy is an alcoholic who can't commit, gal carries a torch for guy, guy finally ends that by making sordid request of gal. Would be end of story but guy called gal every so often because even though he never committed he really loved gal (that stinks doesn't it) and he wants to talk to her and/or see her on occasion. Story got ended when gal got landline disconnected and now he has no way to get hold of her because he is too much of a coward to come to the house, which I hope doesn't change because I REALLY don't want to deal with him on phone or in person if you know what I mean. I don't love him any more, no more torching, but there was a strong connection for a long time but it got disrupted and now it is all over and has been for me anyway for about 16 years. That's a long time for him to not really give up considering that he couldn't commit.

Yep, this post gets cheerier by the line. I am going to quit now and do something else. BLARG!

Ciao!

Talk about your free association commentary...
Or would that be a typical mind out of body experience? I must say I have NEVER found any drug that effects me that way and there was a time when I actually looked(If you follow?) You know the saying,

"If you can remember the 60s/70s/80s/(whenever) you weren't there"
Well, I was there and I remember it all--for better or worse..

(this is Claudia--in case you cannot tell)

Hi Claudia, you have to watch out for Nyquil it can do "evil" things to you. It also helps you to cough less and sleep, sleep, sleep!

I will try not to post under the effect of drugs for a while!

I don't suppose Torch Guy looks anything like this...
funny pictures - Some may call it stalking...

He sounds like a real dweeb. Basement Cat may be preferable.


Hope you feel better soon.

You know, I scold happydog for taking Nyquil or Dayquil because it's not good for diabetics, what with the sugar content and such. (Don't make me come over there! ;)) He's had weird Nyquil dreams, too.

Actually that is a good likeness of Torch Guy, thanks for the picture.

I took Nyquil capsules, no sugar some mannitol and sorbitol but no sugar. So am I off the hook for that anyway!

I am somewhat better at night but during the day I feel more like cr*p than usual. Being a vampire has its disadvantages.

Hugs,
