My daughter takes an over-the-counter drug called Zyrtek for allergies, so the other night when my ankles and eyes were itching unbearably, I zipped up to her room and took a Zyrtek from the bottle next to her bed. And then I slept for 11 hours.
Wow! Six hours is usually the best I can eke out. I was groggy all day.
“You know, honey,” I said to my daughter. “I wonder if you should be taking Zyrtek every day. It’s really strong stuff.”
“You took it from the bottle next to my bed?” she demanded. “That wasn’t Zyrtek. That was Xanax!”
