Some See Double, I See Poultry

posted by Momo Fali on October 28, 2009

I have been known to do unusual things after taking Ambien. What is remarkable about these things is that I often have no recollection of them. Luckily I don’t eat, drive or call people. Shout out to my big sister! Put down the phone Trish!

Mostly, I just write. As it turns out, I did some of that last night. I vaguely remember penning notes to my two children and to my husband before I went to bed. I know they were love notes, left for them to read when they woke up. If you had asked me what those notes said this morning, however, I would have been clueless.

So sometimes there are brief remembrances about the previous evening, but not always. I logged on to Twitter today, and had absolutely no memory of leaving this update last night:

On Ambien…just saw woman seductively stick her leg around our bedroom door and it turned out to be a huge Turkey drumstick.

A hallucinating, crazy woman in the bed and a woman with legs made of turkey behind the door.

My husband is one lucky guy.

    Hmmm, You are either very excited about Thanksgiving or afraid that your legs are turning into mighty drumsticks.

  • Melisa with one S

    You kill me. My analysis? You get the munchies when you're taking Ambien.

    Either that or you're dying to have a threesome with a pilgrim.

  • Tara R.

    I'm sorry I missed that tweet.

  • Misty

    it is AMAZING what people on that pill do…

  • Always Home and Uncool

    Those are some awesome drugs.

  • Xbox4NappyRash

    I saw that tweet and chuckled.

    I love seeing a bird come around my bedroom door.

    I can't stop giggling. I've had a bit of insomnia lately. Luckily, not enough to warrant the use of Ambien…

    Was her name Robin? "All the little birdies going tweet tweet tweet, Rockin' Robin TWEET TWEET TWEET Rockin' Robin…"

  • Smart A$$ Mom

    I am impressed with your ability to spell correctly while high! Nice!

  • Aunt Juicebox

    This is why I refuse to take the stuff. My life is frightening enough when I can remember all the crazy crap I do.

  • Heather

    How exciting! Wish I could have some hallucinations like that!

  • the planet of janet

    my bff's husband eats while on ambien.

    perhaps you should get together. i'm sure that turkey leg would be well-appreciated.

  • MidLifeMama

    Friends do NOT let friends Tweet while under the influence of alcohol or physician prescribed medications! Hilarious.

  • Tom

    Those are some of my favorite tweets of yours.

  • Debbie

    Rarely do things I read on here actually make me laugh out loud. But this did. A lot. Now, I'd like to follow you on twitter.

  • the*4*of*us

    too funny! Your husband should put some sort of ambien-block on your computer 🙂

  • Stacey

    Wow. So does that stuff actually help people sleep or just make them think they're dreaming?

  • Jaina

    LMAO. Movie material, right there Momo.

  • BeautifulWreck

    Just now reading this and LMAO at 1:18 in the morning. My friend Ambien text me all the time. Those are priceless.

  • mrsmouthy

    Then I strongly advise you NOT to eat ANYTHING when you've taken an Ambien.

  • meleah rebeccah
