027

I woke up, made coffee, smoked, practised my yoga routine, smoked, blogged, smoked, cooked lunch, ate it and smoked. I live a dream. Except while cooking, I got a nasty headache.

I was cooking fish, so maybe it was the ghost of the fish cooked that came to plague me. Maybe the fish cooked was a single mother and now her baby fish is floating bellies up in the ocean because their parent was hooked, deep frozen and cooked. Wouldn’t this image give you a headache too?

The fact that the lunch was barely edible didn’t relieve my pain either. Cooking is not on the short list of things that I hate the least. Since home cuisine as a cure did nothing for me, I popped two Ibuprofen 400 painkillers and went to bed, where I was growling for a while and then slept through the whole day.

Now I’m quite fine again, thanks to Ibuprofen, for which I composed a thank-you ode.

O Ibuprofen 400

I love it

When I’m low

You give me back

What I lack

My healthy glow

  1. Thank the gods for over-the-counter drugs otherwise I would be functioning only a fraction of the time.

    1. Yep. Thanks the gods of medical science for the drugs which are keeping us alive and semi-functioning at least. Otherwise I could just sit down and wait to die 😮

  2. Sounds like an over-all great day.

    We have some good stuff here [than ibuprofen]. 374mg ASA + 15mg caffein + 8mg codeine, no prescription! Can’t bring it across the border, though …

    1. Yes, I imagine I had a great day, apart from the headache, but then I wouldn’t know, I slept through most of it!

      Ah, caffein plus codeine, sounds lovely! I too doubt that Amazon would ship some of these here. Discriminators.

      1. They used to have a name «222» and only sold in Canada … at least as a non-prescription drug. Now they’re called something else … AC&C, I think. There’s also Tylenol with codeine.

        1. I know I’m getting old when I get all excited about drugs rather than, say, parties or whatever.

  3. Ok. I’m sorry you have been slammed with a headache, but the single mom fish scenario was really funny.

    1. I’m glad that you’re a fellow fan of bizarre humour 🙂 My life is rather uneventful, so I tend to dramatise the little things with some poetic licence…

    1. I had a great sleep, but I woke up somewhat confused because I woke up in the evening… Well, if nothing worse…
