the pharmaceutical industry might be suffering some Unusual Excitement
Although not entirely back to normal my hand is getting better….. PHEW ……. So I no longer look like The Curse of the Claw, however I have been taking some tablets to help. In the old days when someone gave you tablets to take they would be in a small brown glass screw top jar with something like ‘Take three times a day’ written on the label and that would be that. No these days, they tend to come in boxes and so called blister packaging and acres of it too. But also inside these boxes will be a piece of paper in tiny print warning of the potential dangers of the pill you are about to take. In general it appears that even the simple placebo has paperwork in small print that says the pill will kill you, either from a stroke or heart attack or some other option. However the pills (which are bright orange) also have listed on this piece of paper ‘Unusual Excitement’ …….WHAT? Are they mad, so I thought I must photograph this as prove it is not me that is MAD but the pharmaceutical industry.
So today I have been waiting for some Unusual Excitement to happen. I went to
thinking there might be something
Unusually Exciting there but there was not, although I did talk to a man with a
huge oak beam that he was using to repair a steam powered pterodactyl that had
crash landed in his garden. And I saw several people who said “O MY GOD LOOK AT
YOUR HAND, is it PLAGUE………….. . … . . .
… . . . . . . . . . . . . .
.AUUUuuuuuuuuuuuGgggggHHHHHHHHHHH. Then I left Montgomery and returned home and watched tractors
going backwards and forwards and doing synchronized harvesting of Hay….. I
suspect they must have read the ‘Fifty Grades of Hay’ book and were showing off
a bit…. But it was not unusually exciting, not even a bit. Then Mr Jones said
he might get some of the same tablets because it might help with his Alien
Spotting in the woods. He said being abducted and examined by aliens can be
unusually exciting and anything that will help is worth trying….. I did tell
him that being wrapped in cling film and wearing a big red wig was more likely
to scare aliens that attract them, but he explained that was just a mistake and
he had forgotten to change before he left home….? Montgomery
The dog says my hand is looking better and no longer looks like a rat that has swallowed a party balloon, but just a fat rat that has been over indulging at a party….. He also added that he had been having a rather unusually exciting day before falling about in hysterics….. Mum said IDIOT but I think she means the dog.
