Strung out in suburbia






That seems to be more and more prevalent these days. Soccer moms popping their phentermine. Angry moms with their Xanax. Smiling grandmas eating their percocets. Tired students popping Ritalin. Kudos to the pharmaceutical companies for finally giving the corner dope dealers a run for their money. Waitress's carrying your tray of food, with a smile and a Fentanyl patch. I don't agree or disagree. I take medication that I need or I would not be able to work. I just have noticed the shift. Most of the younger drug addicts that I used to know are now on pain management. They switched from the illegal to the legal. It's safer, more dependable and you know what you are getting. It keeps parole and probation happy too. Win win for all. I guess. A man shall never have a limp dick again, thanks to Viagra. Smilin' Bobs abound. So the Mrs. Smilin Bob takes valium at night because she thought after 50 years Bob would give it a break. I try to imagine Kenny and I at 80, him still waking me up with a woody in the early am. Hmmmm...don't know, cause I am not 80 and he is dead, but it just makes me wonder. Are my legs restless? Do I need Abilify because I do get depressed sometimes? I believe in the early times Heroin was touted as a great elixir. Women took a powder. We are a self-medicating society. That I do know. What I am wondering is, what life was like before all the wonder drugs? Have a great day...Time for my afternoon medication....

Funny! But the reality is that it hits the same. A suburban mom got hooked on percocet and ended up steeling money from the job and from her mortgage. Very sad. Different drugs,same consequences!
