GIRAFFES AND THE PROPER WAY TO EAT A CANDY CANE

I’m sad to be back at work after 11 days off. I had a great time over the holidays, which is why I’ve blogged zero times. Oops! I’ll try to remember to do a NYE recap at least. I’m sure everyone is falling off their seats to hear about that. *cough* Anyway, since I was off for so long, I threw off my sleep schedule.

Taking advice from a friend with mild insomnia, I tried Melatonin. Sometimes when I have trouble sleeping, I’ll just take Benadryl. This time, I wanted to try something new. Melatonin was a freaking experience, and not a restful one. It actually kinda bothered my stomach a little bit. I couldn’t fall asleep for a good hour and a half due to a little stomach pain (okay, I admit to eating SpongeBob mac and cheese for dinner that night). Once that was over, I was feeling hyper. I couldn’t sleep because any sound made my heart race. 

Once on the fringes of sleep, I experienced very vivid dreams and random thoughts. I remember thinking about giraffes, serial killers, venomous snakes, and rescuing dogs and keeping them in an abandoned home. Seriously? Normally I don’t have adverse reactions to PM cold medicine or Advil. It reminded me of the first time I took Claritin years ago (before they changed their formula), and felt like I was on crack. 

In unrelated news, I’ve been eating candy canes wrong my whole life. I always want to eat them hook side first. You should really eat them from the bottom. So much easier! So glad this lack of sleep is helping me eat candy properly.

  1. I always started on the long end and by the time I got to the hook part I usually had to break it lest I stab myself in the mouth. Candy canes can get quite sharp. It’s probably what elves use to shank people with.

    I don’t think I’ll ever take Melatonin thanks to this story. I like giraffes but not crazy dreams.
