I’ve never been one to fancy medication. Well, I can’t say that in full honesty. Back in the day, I felt compelled to sneak ample swigs of any bubble gum flavored serum when Mom wasn’t looking (especially that pink Strep Throat medicine they used to give you when you were a kid). Grape flavored baby aspirin? More like Pez. But in all seriousness, I try to avoid it at all costs.
Lately, it seems that people have more trust in an orange cylinder than a glass of orange juice. They have one finger on the pharmacy speed dial at all times. On the other hand, there are people who believe in natural cures and holistic healing. I fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. I by no means have the intentions or the knowledge to try to sway anyone’s preexisting opinions on this topic, but here is what I do know:
Whatever the ailment, be it mental, physical, or emotional, there exists a universal feel good drug, and you don’t need a prescription or an awkward jaunt down the OTC aisle at your local pharmacy to get it.
You see, the perks of such a drug are infinite. It will never be discontinued. It’s not illegal to distribute, and you get unlimited refills. There are no negative side effects save for some shortness of breath and a little embarrassment if you are a snorter. There is no known allergy that exists with laughter. You won’t build a tolerance or fuck up your immune system if you use too much. Dependency is actually encouraged.
I’ve been a fortunate soul. I have not personally experienced serious illness. Sure, I’ve had my down days, weeks, and maybe even years. In retrospect, it was never anything to call Oprah over. But that doesn’t mean that I haven’t seen this drug in action. I can’t count how many times I googled endless YouTube videos of talking animals to remedy an awful day. I’ve joked at my own expense to calm a friend’s nerves.
But it even works under dire circumstance. I witnessed my brother cling to humor while battling fatal addictions and depression. I sought the comfort of my friends’ smiles and laughter on the night he tried to take his life. I even saw that same humor ultimately save him.
Needless to say, I have learned to develop a strong faith in laughter.
So here is the deal. As a humor blogger, a believer in alternative medicine, and a generous drug dealer, I offer this miracle drug to you at no cost. What do I get out of it you ask? The contact high of course.
