This Just In

I'm still trying to come to terms with the fact that I'll be missing tons of great shows this weekend because I'm sick, but I am taking a little comfort in the fact that The Juliets, one of my favorite Detroit-area bands, just released their brand new debut for free download. So I'm gonna go take some more cough syrup, play Nintendo and listen to it right now. You should too - at least the listening to it part.

I don't really suggest the cough syrup part. In fact, I really don't understand how people use this stuff in a recreational manner. The bottle I have says in large letters on the side: PARENTS: TALK TO YOUR TEENS ABOUT COUGH MEDICINE ABUSE. Add this to the list of reasons I'm not sad I don't have a child. I can't really see that conversation going my way.

Me: Hey you.

Kid (probably playing video games or watching TV, not really having any desire to talk to me): What?

Me: I wanted to talk to you about cough medicine abuse.

Kid: What? Why?

Me: Because it says to right here. On the side of the bottle.

Kid: Cough medicine tastes disgusting.

Me: I know - that's what
I said. I mean, who knew you could, for instance, mix a bottle of it with say, Sprite and Vodka and have it be palatable?
Kid: Whoa. People do that?

Me: I guess so - I saw it in a rap video once. I guess they call it, "Sippin' the sizzurp." Or something. They say it provides a
killer high.
Kid: Wow - really? I wouldn't have ever thought of that.

Me: Oh. Well, um, please don't ok?

Kid: Whatever.

Me: I'm glad we had this talk.

Kid: Please leave now.

Me: Ok. Love you.
