I forget from surgery to surgery just how much I like me that Versed! Yeah, that is some kinda good drug, there. Gimme some more of THAT.

When I woke up, I was hurtin' pretty bad, so they shot me up with some Morphine! It was the second time I had been given that drug and I liked it! The first time I got it I was havin' chest pain that wasn't THAT kind of chest pain, but we all thought it was at the time. So although I got kinda floaty, I didn't enjoy it like I did today.
Today, I understand why people get addicted to this stuff. And I will tell you right now, I would be a HAPPY junkie. I was babbling like I had good sense. I was singing "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band" off key, of course; and telling jokes, just generally having a GRAND time. The Nurse told me it wouldn't last very long, that it wasn't a very big dose. Well, I'll let y'all in on a little secret: I must be a cheap date where Morphine is concerned. I was still high as a kite 2.5 hours later when I went to bed at home.

But all the friends and fam I called before going to bed knew I was in a good mood. Don't think there was any doubt about that.

Well, I'm tired and hurting and have a road trip tomorrow. Y'all have fun while I'm gone.

Ohhh, birthday girl gets some spankings today!!!

Hope you are doing well today. Painkillers are so much fun. I got my first Percocet at I know what 'warm fuzzy' feels like. Dad was given a date with Prince Valium after surgery on his sinus cavity. "Free Wills for everybody!" We had to take the phone out of his room so he would stop drunk dialing the Probate judges. No lie.

get better.

BTW, you're over at my place so much, I decided to make some room for ya. You're linked.
