I can’t believe all of the stories coming out about Ambien, the sleeping pill. Having never taken it, I can’t say whether it’s good or bad. However, my Running Husband Mike had an interesting experience that can only be likened to an acid trip of the best kind! At Jason’s Farewell party, we got on the subject of the Ambien press as of late…It’s causing people to drive off the road and sleep walk. My favorite is that it caused one woman to binge eat and gain 100 lbs. She would sleep walk to the kitchen in the middle of the night and stuff her face with cookies, chips and ice cream. First of all, why do you have all of that crap in your house in the first place??? Buy some spinach lady. I guarantee you’ll sleep through the night.
I was skeptical of all of these recent lawsuits until Mike told us his story. It seems that he and his REAL fiance’ Hava took Ambien and didn’t go straight to bed as instructed by the prescription. He thought it best to do some internet searching when the hallucinations began. The screen and words were moving around…The cast members on the “Lost” website were moving and “jockeying for position” on the page(his words, not mine). He attempted to go to bed and Hava recounted some hilarious conversations he was trying to have, including asking her to give him a pedicure!! I know Mike and I can assure you that he is not a “pedicure guy.” Hava, of course, is freaking out because she’s not experiencing the same effects. In fact, she’s just probably freakin’ tired and wants to go to sleep by this point.
They woke up the next morning and Mike remembered NOTHING!! weird…….(X-files music)
WARNING: Do not take Ambien…unless you want a pedicure.
