Doctor Please, Some More of These

March 2, 2006

I want (NEEEEEEED) a refillable prescription for this:

Well, why shouldn’t we have our own wonder drug?  Our mothers had Valium, didn’t they? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valley_of_the_Dolls)

Thanks for turning me on to that, Stefani! (http://www.stefanitadio.com)

Song of the Day:  Mother’s Little Helper by The Rolling Stones

What a drag it is getting old

“Kids are different today,”

I hear every mother say

Mother needs something today to calm her down

And though she’s not really ill

There’s a little yellow pill

She goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

“Things are different today,”

I hear every mother say

Cooking fresh food for a husband’s just a drag

So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak

And goes running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

Doctor please, some more of these

Outside the door, she took four more

What a drag it is getting old

“Men just aren’t the same today”

I hear every mother say

They just don’t appreciate that you get tired

They’re so hard to satisfy, You can tranquilize your mind

So go running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

Doctor please, some more of these

Outside the door, she took four more

What a drag it is getting old

“Life’s just much too hard today,”

I hear every mother say

The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore

And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose

No more running for the shelter of a mother’s little helper

They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

    george Carlin had a routine years ago “Two in the mouth, pop two in the mouth,” in reference to housewives making it through the day on pills. I haven’t thought about Valley of the Dolls in forever. I’m not sure I’ve ever even seen the movie – but I remember it for Patty Duke as much as I do for Sharon Tate. That was quite a different role for her after The Patty Duke Show. And I closely followed the whole Sharon Tate/Charles Manson thing. (Thanks for the link!)

    I saw Valley Of The Dolls several times, it was kind of a cult hit back then I think. I had forgotten about it also. And they say prozac nation now, that was the valium nation. I love that stones song too. But I would love to have one of those “new” pills you link to.

    I love that video. What an awesome day for that young man. I wonder if he is the equivilant of a savant in basketball and they just didn’t know it? That many baskets? I wonder if he will get to play more now. I haven’t read his story. Either way what a great day. And why DO you give yourself such a hard time? Maybe because you care- not everyone does. I bet you do more than some teachers around there, and that’s not a bash on teachers, I have the greatest respect growing up as the child of a teacher. It’s jsut that they’re not all perfect either. I’m just sayin.

    From Green day: Take away the sensation inside Bitter sweet migraine in my head Its like a throbbing tooth ache of the mind I can’t take this feeling anymore Drain the pressure from the swelling, The sensations overwhelming, Give me a kiss goodnight and everything will be alright Tell me that I won’t feel a thing So give me Novacaine Out of body and out of mind Kiss the demons out of my dreams I get the funny feeling, that’s alright Jimmy says it’s better than air, I’ll tell you why Drain the pressure from the swelling, The sensations overwhelming, Give me a kiss goodnight and everything will be alright, Tell me that I won’t feel a thing, So give me Novacaine Oh Novacaine Drain the pressure from the swelling, The sensations overwhelming Give me a kiss goodnight and everything will be alright, Tell me Jimmy I won’t feel a thing, So give me Novacaine Boy, there seem to be a lot of songs like that.

    Hmm… Doesn’t seem like the enter key works well for posts here. Ok, well, just about each capital letter signifies a new line, and the comment at the end is mine.
