Thoughts, Thoughts, Thoughts

Have you been watching drug ads on television lately?

I have and I wait for the part that starts, "Side effects include..." And then they're off and running. Those 'side effects include' take up waaay too much of the commercial. Sometimes they're worse than what brought you there in the first place.

I don't know about you but I'm sitting at home thinking, "I hope I never have to take that."

And what is Restless Leg Syndrome?

I've lived a long life and I've never heard of anyone having it.

It used to be, you drank coffee, the caffeine caused you to tap your foot or talk too fast or bounce your leg.

We used to call that having too much coffee.

It's now called Restless Leg Syndrome.

Can I interest you in some Decaf?


It seems more and more I find out I suffer from things I've never heard of.

Talk to your doctor.

And, since we're talking, when did television shows go from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to The Walking Dead? Yeah, yeah, I get gritty and good writing and all that. I'm just saying it's hard to watch shows like the latter without thinking someone or something is coming to your house to get you.

In fact there are vampires and monsters and things that go bump in the night all over screens, big and small.

All out to get you.

I've been saying, "Yet another movie I won't see," for like forever.

I'm funny in that things that make me stay up at night or get me jumpy as all get out, I avoid. I also  try to avoid things that would like to eat me.

Have you been seeing the trailer for this new Purge movie? You can go see it if you want to but when you're there look around the movie theater.

You won't see me.

Call me a wuss if you want to but I'll pop the corn and watch Bull Durham.
