It's only 6 days late...

My mom just got put on a new prescription to continue to help the neuropathy in her hands to go away. It is called Lyrica, and when she read the label and accompanying information, there were over 20 different listed side effects. I don't want to freak you out, Mom, but I did a little research and there are actually a few more that you need to watch out for...


11. Tingling eyelashes
10. Itchy barnacles
9. Spontaneous ventriloquism
8. Loss of interest in breeding woodchucks
7. Tears that taste like gravy
6. Thoughts of tax evasion
5. Loss of touch with reality, illusions of grandeur and irrational feelings of superiority (Oh, wait, those are side effects of being elected president with zero qualifications. Oops!)
4. Trouble remembering the winner of American Idol for seasons 2,3,5,6,7,8,9 & 10. (Oh, wait, that's a side effect of being a human being)
3. Heightened sense of when the garbage man will come
2. Poor judgement, followed by voting Democrat
1. Irregular smiling
