Yesterday morning I woke up with one of the worst migraines I've had in a long time.

I don't count it amongst the very worst because I didn't end up laying over a toilet bowl in a bathroom without the lights on.  Instead my body gave up and I fell into a deep sleep, a nap that lasted pretty much for 24 hours. 

My parents were visiting and I missed breakfast with them.  The night before we took them to dinner and then Mom and I had girl's night at the casino.  She doubled her bankroll.  I got hit on by a man with a heavy Spanish accent.  We went back to my house and ate sorbet.  Why a migraine had to show up is anyone's guess.

My mom called when they got home and the phone conversation went something like this:

Ring ring ring ring ring (where is my husband) ring ring ring (sound hurts) ring ring....

Me:  Hello?

Mom:  We got home.  We wanted to call to see if you were okay.

Me:  I'm sleeping.

Mom:  That's good.

Me:  Okay.  Bye.

And I hung up.

At least, I think that's how it went down.  I don't remember all that much.  It's entirely possible I told my mother that I was riding unicorns, eating cotton candy and farting glitter before suddenly hanging up on her.  But then, my saying such a thing wouldn't have been a cause for concern.  People are surprised when things like that don't come out of my mouth at any given time.  She should gauge how I'm feeling  by the lack of fart jokes and I should call back.

Where was my husband?  He went to the grocery store for soup.  It was sweet of him.

This morning I woke up completely wrung out without any clothes on.  I remember getting up to shower.  I remember getting up later to brush my teeth because I had soup breath.  I remember my husband watching "A Fish Called Wanda" next to me in bed after dark.  I thought I remembered putting on pajamas...

Glitter in your drawers though...that's gotta itch...the effect is more spectacular without pants.
