I think I’m suffering from a touch of the vapors lately. The symptoms are clear; boredom, lack of energy, easily distracted, forgetfulness. Sadly, to get a good Patent Medicine requires a prescription these days. Oh for the good old days when Coca-Cola had real Cocaine in it. I bet those crazy Victorian’s threw some wild parties. Of course, back then they called it “taking a cure”.
What this country needs is more Moxie.
A good old fashioned opium laced elixir to help get us through these trying times. Simple coffee is no longer cutting it.
Lil’ Miss 20 Prospect is currently on a Gluten Free, Dairy Free, food free diet as we try to determine if she has a food allergy. So we’ve been suddenly thrust into the world of Natural Foods. Walking the aisles of the local organic / natural food market, I can’t help but look at the packaging, and see the similarities to the patent medicine craze of the Victorian era.
Sadly, organic, gluten free, corn bread pancake mix is a poor substitute for opium.
