One of These Things is Not Like the Other

posted by Momo Fali on June 30, 2011

You know how, in the past, I have taken to Twitter after ingesting my Ambien? Well, I haven’t done much of that lately.

Mostly, I’ve been sleep-eating. I think. I woke one morning, not long ago, to find a plate on my nightstand which had clearly held nachos.

But, the last two mornings it appears that I have been spending my evenings grooming myself. Yesterday, all of the toes on my left foot were purple and this morning, I woke to this…

Let’s hope I stay away from the eyebrow wax.

    That shit scares me. I’m sorry you have to deal with insomnia, but it hardly seems fair that the medication for it should make you have black-outs!

  • Jules

    That would be super funny if it wasn’t a little scary!

  • Danielle

    I’ve been on Ambien for 9 years, so I can totally relate. I’m reading this at the office and laughing really loud. You just rocked my lunch hour.

  • Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing]

    My aunt told me she sexts random people on Facebook while she’s on Ambien.

  • C @ Kid Things

    That’s kinda creepy. Funny, but a little creepy. Though the sexting from the comment above might be a little worse.

  • dysfunctional mom

    and the scissors! Holy Crap!

  • Twenty Four At Heart

    And/or bikini wax!

    Can’t wait to seeeeeeeeeeeeee you!! xo

  • SurprisedMom

    My doctor wanted to give me Ambien. I said no. Maybe I should have said yes. I’d have beautiful nails.

  • Amie

    I can’t paint my nails that well when I’m awake…sleepwalk yourself over here and give me a sleep mani/pedi, please.

  • lceel

    I wonder who Angie’s aunt is ….. I need more Facebook friends … anyway … you could get yourself a part-time job as a manicurist. fer realz. You do good work.

  • Tara R.

    If your peeps are as warped as mine, it’s just your kids messing with you while you’re asleep. But, I’d still hide the wax and scissors.

  • Bethany

    Oh my…yea. That would be really funny, but it’s definitely kind of scary! I had a friend who slept walked out of her house, across a busy road and got the mail. So strange. I have a friend who really struggles with sleep issues and she’s always concerned about the side effects of meds 🙁

  • UP

    Gosh, and I wasted that money today on a manicure and pedicure – oh, get over it – when I could have just taken an Ambien.

    What’s UP with that?


  • Heather

    hahaahahha, this makes me love my ambien even more. maybe that’s why i have such nice nails? maybe i’m re-painting them every night in my sleep?

  • Julie

    Um, maybe you should switch meds?? The side effects don’t seem worth the benefits unless it’s just your husband really messing with you! lol

    • Momo Fali

      Have tried everything. Really. It’s been 13 years of insomnia and Ambien really, truly, helps me sleep.

  • KK

    It looks to me like someone is definitely a Buckeye fan. Is that Revlon “Silver Dollar”?

  • mrsmouthy

    I bet your son is totally messing with you. This looks like his work.
