    While we're on the subject of drugs ...

    About a decade ago, I had surgery which, amongst other things, removed the bones from my right inner ear (which pretty much makes me deaf in that ear). I was pretty messed up from the anesthetic and I vaguely recall being wheeled out of the operating room and seeing an incredibly vision of loveliness -- standing next to my wife. I'm not sure exactly what I said to her, but my wife tells me that the lady (a nurse) was trying to reassure her that it was the effects of the anesthetic.

    Later on, I was sitting in the hospital bed, still pretty loopy, when my ear began to hurt. BADLY. My wife called the nurse and she came in and explained to me that the doctor was going to give me a prescription for Tylenol with Codeine. I'm told that at this point, I burst into tears at which point my prescription was upgraded to Vicodin :)
