I am sick. Very, very sick. My son was sick all last week and I caught it from him. I feel unbelievably bad. My throat is swollen and blistered. My ear is infected. I have a fever that is making my body hurt literally from head to toe.
Normally, I am pretty granola when it comes to medicine. I do homeopathic treatments and save medicine as a last resort. But last night I was in so much pain that I could not sleep. So I broke down and took two NyQuil. Once it kicked in, I drifted off and slept for eleven hours. God bless NyQuil.
All of this made me think of one of my favorite comedians, Lewis Black, and his bit on NyQuil, "the moonshine of medicine".
