Have you seen that recent commercial for the newest sleeping drug? You know, the one where the mother gets incredibly excited that she actually slept through the night? She has a t-shirt and a flag? Yeah, that one. Clearly she has her print artist on speed dial. I can just imagine me like that:
|In case you are wondering, the song in my head is 1985's, "Nightshift" by the Commodores. |
Look it up, you'll thank me.
Well, I've seen this ad several times, and it just makes me mad. I mean, I can't even IMAGINE waking up having slept through the night, let alone having enough energy in the morning to dance. Granted I clearly have a sleeping problem, but really?! A flag?? Jeepers. Either this pill is pure magic, or they are seriously overestimating its dance-causing capabilities. And drug companies, if this is an accurate depiction, I would like a truck-load please. Like, right now.
Let's get real, this is me in the morning:
|Your eyes do not deceive you, that is in fact a t-shirt nightgown.|
And that's after being in bed for nine hours! Yep, it's not pretty.
P.S. I have to admit, I did turn to my all time favourite advice website: ehow. They say, and I quote, "Get a good mattress". A second search wielded the results, "Is it better to put my laptop to hibernate or sleep". Yeah, thanks for nuthin'.
