A Little Cocktail Of Sorts

(This photo has absolutely nothing to do with the content of this post, but research shows that blogs with photos get more views, so there you go. I will mention that these pulled pork tacos from Robert’s Restaurant were phenomenal. PHENOMENAL!)

As some of you know, my family caught some sort of plague a couple of weeks ago. Everybody, with the exception of Evelyn, got hit by it. I am still not totally well. It’s this damn cough. It’s just so dang persistent. I can’t shake this thing. At night it gets worse and when I lay down to sleep it gets worser. Yes, “worser”. It’s an artistic misspelling used for emphasis. You’ve got to learn the rules, before you can break them, people! Anyway…the cough is a real persistent mutha at bedtime. A few nights ago I decided to medicate myself. In other words, I crafted a “sleepy time cocktail of sorts”.

I was very determined to get some sleep and not just toss, cough, turn, cough all night. I’m sure the cocktail I crafted is not as gnarly as snorting crushed Tylenol’s or taking a hit off a crack pipe, but still…I’m a lightweight when it comes to this sort of thing. Maybe try this at home? Maybe try this before you go out for a night on the town? Either way, you could be setting yourself up for a really great time. Ready? Go!

(Again, this photo has nothing to do with this post, but just in case you ever wondered what I would look like with a Bozo The Clown cut, now you know. You’re welcome. Get your own Bozo cut at Woody’s Old Time Barber Shop.)

First I downed 30 ml of NyQuil Severe Cold & Flu to suppress the annoying cough I had. Next, I popped a couple of chewable peppermint flavored melotonin’s to help me sleep. Then, just for good measure and to add a bit of coziness to my self medicating experiment, I drank a cup a Trader Joe’s Hot Cocoa…
with a shot of Kahlua in it. At least a shot, that’s very important. Then I brushed me teeth, grabbed the iPad, laid in bed and watched It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Netflix until I passed out about 8 minutes into the show.

And that, my friends, is the Claassen Cocktail For A Coughless Sleepy Time.

Feel free to let us know your favorite self-medicating cocktails. We’d love to hear them!
