Up and down or even?
I have been in a Dayquil haze the past couple of days. It is pretty amazing how neutral this stuff makes you feel. I almost have a floating sensation, which is actually quite helpful in my productivity level at work.
Being over the counter doped-up also makes me think about my friends that pop pills. To be honest, I sometimes think that having a decent supply of various scripts around wouldn't be such a bad thing. There are many situations in my day that I get way more bent out of shape for then I should. Pills certainly put on fewer pounds than alcohol.
A good friend of mine said that she used to take a pill to calm her nerves. While I think part of it is that she is a Sagittarius, she also is just a really active "what's next" kind of person. After something like a year on this drug, she realized that she rarely ever felt any sort of emotion one way or the other. Of course, that's the classic question, is it worth extreme of highs and lows or better to just always be even?
She chose the ups and downs. I guess it all just depends on how high you go and how far you fall. But, there is some allure to just coasting on through the depressing melee.
On a more positive note, I'd like to say thanks for the great brunch on Sunday to Chase, Miss Penny Lane and Steve. Lots of drinks and lots of fun. Also a holla to DC Cookie who I ran into at Eye Bar on Friday.
