Is it the Nyquil Hallucinations or Just Me?

I’ve had a cold the last few days and I’ve been taking a lot of Dayquil, Nyquil, some Benadryl (because I’m still not sure it isn’t allergies so I’m covering all bases) and three cups of coffee.  Probably shouldn’t have had that third cup.  Or the first.  I think I’m at that entertaining point of too much cold medicine (I think the Dayquil and Nyquil are doing a thunder dome thing inside me: “Two men enter! One man leave!”) 

I am loopy as shit.

I recommend watching infomercials while riding the Nyquil dragon.  I watched an infomercial for something called a Dump Cake.  You heard me right.  I even googled it just in case I was tripping balls.  It’s for real.  You can make pie or some mongrel looking monstrosity with noodles and ground beef.  The tiny woman hocking it dumped a can of apples and ready made dough and 45 minutes later she had an apple pie.  It was not an “Oooh, Granny’s made a beautiful pie with heavenly crust that brings tears to your eyes.”  This was an apple pie abortion.

The important thing is I tipped over into Too Much Cold Medicine Hysterics and went into giggling fits each time the lady said “Dump.”  She said it 12 times.  Here’s some Dump Peach Pie.  Quick and easy Dump Lasagna.  Where are the Dysentery Dumplings?  Diarrhea Danish?

Huh.  Must’ve been a good infomercial.  Now I want some pie.


About jkhughes2

I'm fat and I hate my job. Well kinda. Kinda on both of those. I love to read and work in a library where they don't let me read. But as long as I get to be around books I'm happy. I once wanted to be a writer and then realized that I'm too lazy to write a book but not too lazy to write a blog. And blogging is like keeping a journal except my posts are the equivalent of verbal diarrhea. And oh yeah. I have really low self-esteem. I have a dog named Max but I call him Maxhole. He's the first dog I've ever had. I find his daily life way more interesting than mine or most people I know. That's about it. I hate politics and computer books. I secretly wish I was Doctor Who but can't remember if that's "was" or "were." Now that's it.

    I am never eating dump cake (or lasagna or pie). Do not bring it to our next potluck.

    OMG!!! I make dump cake and you bitches are getting some!!

  4. I’m the same way (covering all bases)! Here I am patiently waiting for the days to pass until it’s spring, & somehow, I’ve forgotten how horrible & unbearable my allergies can be. Get well soon!

      Thanks for the well wishes! The older I get the more my allergies seem to be popping up. I’m excited for Spring to get here too. I’ll load up on Benadryl! You stay healthy.

    It’s a recipe as old as the freaking hills! So funny to see it revived,,,by none other than somebody who appears to be…as old or older than…baseball.

      I actually had a piece of dump cake at a birthday party last week. It was surprisingly good! But I’m like a 12 year old boy. I get the giggles when I hear the word dump. Or duty.
