Pill surprise

One unavoidable side-effect of the holiday season, is that an unusually large junk-mountain lands on my mailbox every day. Usually this stuff never makes it past the trashcan in my driveway, but yesterday I found something that made me giggle. I giggled, of course, because deep down I’m nothing but a big brat with my head up my ass.

Anyway, it was a commercial for roseroot pills. According to the fancy looking little pamphlet, this wondrous product would help me focus on (for instance) my studies before an exam AND increase sexual arousal.

Now call me crazy if you’d like, but those two things don’t seem like something that you could combine, you know? So is it like a 50/50 thing? Say that I ordered this stuff (which I didn’t, just for the record), and say that I’m sitting in front of my very large books, completely unable to study. And say that I take one of these little miracle pills. Would I become either be absolutely focused, like a little study robot, or completely unable to concentrate?

How do you know which pill does what? Are they labelled? Is it like a pill-surprise?

*giggle*

Maybe you get sexually aroused by studying. You may not retain much information, but you'd have a hell of a good time.

strangely enough, that's never happened

ticknart said...

That's what the pills are for!

But if you get sexually aroused by studying, would that start a habit wherein, in order to become aroused you have to study?

That's some shitass scary possibility.

ticknart said...

Not if you find a partner who's used the pills, too. You'd have the best time studying, ever!

I have a studygroup next week, and that prospect is starting to freak me out a bit...

ticknart said...

I tell you, those pills would make you the hit of the study group. Even more so than the girl who brings brownies.

choochoo said...

hey, what if I sprinkled them on top of brownies?

ticknart said...

Even better!

Perfect. I've been wanting to sleep with this guy with ADD. Forward the information to me.

choochoo said...

Tim - it's almost scary, ain't it?

Mist1 - according to the thingy they're available at just about any one of those health store places. Good luck with the ADD-guy. lol

Why do you need pills to get sexually aroused? ;-)
