Poor Lisa’s really sick, some evil sudden-onslaught virus that’s laid her low. I joked that maybe I had “broken her”? I gave her some Solpadeine (codeine, aspirin, paracetemol/acetominophen and caffeine). Over-the-counter in Ireland, pisses all over their strongest OTC thing here, Excedrin Extra or whatever. I can’t believe wusses like Matthew Perry can check themselves in for addiction to Vicodan (basically a milder Solpadeine) but in Ireland it’s something you routinely swallow for colds and flu. If you’re a celeb then my God get checked in for some hardcore addiction!
I read that “Vicodan is the new quaaludes“. What?!?!?!? If only I’d known I’d have chatted to all those women with colds in Dublin I saw coming out of the pharmacy with Solpadeine, waiting for it to take effect and for them to become sex-crazed love machines.
