Since I’m still sick with the crud that just won’t quit, I’ve pretty much spent the day watching television and slipping in-and-out of consciousness. Meanwhile, my intermittent fever and codeine-laced meds have led to occasional confusion over whether I’m dreaming or not.
Like when I saw the “ShamWoW” commercial with the guy who’s wearing a headset while he talks about some cloth that supposedly holds 21 times its weight in liquids (much like my midsection does at least once a month).
Since I could see no reason why on earth he’d be wearing the headset — and since the guy looks a bit like a young Willem Dafoe, whom I’d been watching earlier in Platoon — I figured I must have dreamed the whole thing.
Of course, that didn’t stop me from later looking the things up on Amazon where I ran into one really freaking funny review.
I didn’t dream that, right? Amazon really left that one up, right?
