NyQuil Dreams

One minor benefit to suffering from rhinovirus or whatever the hell it is that has me coughing and sniffling all the time is NyQuil.  Sickly-sweet, the very taste of illness, it contains a powerful ingredient that knocks me out and gets me to sleep quickly after I take it.  And I have the strangest dreams.  Like my cat morphing into a horse with a long ostrich neck but keeping her face.  Or a rain of cherries.  Actually, I think it would hurt to be in a rain of cherries if they’ve fallen from any height at all, but in my dream it was somewhat pleasant.  I don’t like waking up at 2:30 totally dehydrated but you know what?  If I need the stuff I’ll take it and deal with the drying-out because that beats the hell out of the alternative.  I am, however, really really ready for this to be past me.
