Yet ANOTHER Way to Use Cold Medicine that's not for Meth!

You know that catchy cough syrup commercial that always ends with 



"The sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy head, fever so you can REST medicine...?"


Well, I think I may have added a new symptom to that list of maladies that the gross ole thick stuff can cure: domicile breach. No, it's not the criminal kind -- you need the police for that! It's the kind of infringement on your home where the outside world creeps its way into your comfort zone and won't let go, taking hold of your every thought until you can no longer...just...REST.

Basement Case

The clock on the wall says it's after 4, and since I can hear my mom moving around upstairs cooking something meaty-smelling, I guess it's PM. I just had to write this down that it made me laugh right off the couch cuz the clock on the wall is one of Batman I got for,like, my 4th birthday, and the needle stretching outta his crotch telling me what hour it is looks like he's going flaccid, like he just saw a picture of his grandmother. That's classic.
