View Full Version : I'm sitting here waiting for my unusual thoughts

I took a pill. It was so tiny, I can't imagine that it can do all the horrible things the label claimed.

Although, I do quite like to imagine me once the label warnings kick in. They say I might have 'unusual thoughts'. People who know me are, as we speak, stocking up on wooden stakes and silver bullets.

It's not serious. It was just an antihistamine grenade designed to counter hives. Funny thing is, I don't have hives. The doctor said it was the closest thing he could think of. It's not surprising that I've resisted. But I have to give it a try. The not-hives are quite unpleasant.

Stand by for more unusual thoughts...

Take the first two paragraphs of your post and use them to start a story. Quite a hook, Perks. I'd want to read more.

what's wrong with david caruso?
how come he's not looking at the person he's talking to?
and why is he standing sideways?
why is he talking so slow?
are the other actors thinking the same thing i'm thinking?



oh wait, you said 'unusual' thoughts,....my bad.

I wonder the same thing about Stephen Colbert, and I suspect asymmetrical ears.

Oh, you poor dear. The Not-Hives suck.

Oh look, raspberries!

Fizz had it right in one. Take the title and the first couple of lines and go for it.

And if you aren't? May I? It just looks like fun.

I don't have hives either.

I wonder why the doctor hasn't given me a pill?

Be glad that it doesn't make you into a compulsive gambler.. :)

Now and again, I take not-hives pills. I like them. They make me sleep...ah, sleep, perchance to dream...They don't make me have unusual thoughts...the cat...she's looking a me funny...is she an alien sent to observe?...In fact, I don't think they make me think at all.

I just took a non-pill, in case I get the non-hives. Of course, the main side-effect is the possibility of non-thoughts. Excuse me, I have to take a non-piss, but not now.

Although I used to take more pills than I do now, I still take enough of them that I wouldn't care to have any others (unless they would definitely help and not have any of those pesky, unpleasant side-effects). If this weren't the case, I would want some non-dream pills to stop having all these truly bizarre dreams I almost never remember very well, except for the "that was bizarre" part. At some point in most of these dreams, I suddenly become aware of or at least suspect that I'm dreaming, then keep trying to find a way to wake up. Only problem is, once I-in-dream manage to wake up, I'm either some place I logically shouldn't be or something equally as bizarre happens once I "wake up" and go see if my house is the way it should be. Then I make another unsuccessful attempt to wake up for realz, only to end up in another obviously-dream situation...

Lather, rinse, repeat. Neverending dream-onion layers are no fun, especially when you can't even remember the good parts after you wake up.

I used to take pills that . . . erm, never mind. My thoughts come in more flavors than Bertie Bott's Beans anyway.

Wow. I get disappointed when doctors start talking about drugs like know-it-alls. One semester of pharmacology isn't enough, but that's all they have to take.

Antihistamines can be used for several things, and it just so happens that you can use them for hives. I hate to be a bummer, but the same histamines that make you have hives also make you itch, sneeze, have watery eyes, etc. The way histamines work is by binding to the H1 receptor, and the kind of antihistamine that you're taking will inhibit the histamines from binding to the H1 receptor (until you're body deactivates the antihistamine during metabolism).

Cromolyn Sodium is a neat drug that works by preventing histamines from being formed (released).
