Opiates and Grain Neutral Spirits [Advent Booze Calendar: Boxing Day]   Leave a comment

codeine ibuprofen vodka

Visits to mom almost always included the retort, “my doctor gave me those,” to any comment on the giant bag of pharmaceuticals proffered along with a drink involving 6-to-8 shots of booze, two ice cubes, and a splash of mixer.   Here, we get opiates over-the-counter, cheaply and with the admonition that we shouldn’t take these more than three days (with one of us, ironically and systematically, spouting “what, are you my mom?” under our breath after the deal is done).  The drink and drug fest has to slow down soon, but for now, tear me off a blister pack of those and four fingers of that.

Last day of the Advent effort, and I may be awhile.  Happy New Year if it catches up before next time!
