After I reluctantly dismount the platform every morning I go downstairs and pour a cup of coffee, and take my blood pressure pill and a multivitamin.
The vitamin is roughly the size of a tennis shoe, and tastes like vomit. I put it on the back of my tongue, and immediately blast it down with a slug o’ coffee. If it sits there for more than a split second, I’m left retching and gasping for air because of the August-ass, raw sewage nature of what I’d just willingly put in my mouth.
Plus, they’re really expensive. It’s one of those things I know, and wish I didn’t. It would be better if I was under the impression a bottle costs something like three bucks. Sometimes too much reality and accurate information bleeds into my world. Ya know?
And I wonder, every single day, if they’re doing me any good. I mean, how would I know? I take them religiously, hoping they’re providing some benefit. But, what do I know about it? I suspect 5 percent gets soaked into my heft, and 95 percent is taking a log flume ride straight into the toilet. I bet our water supply is loaded with vitamins and antibiotics. Blecch!
Do you have any info on this? Do multivitamins do any good? Or am I just pissing away good money? Help me out, won’t you?
Also, do you take any supplements, or anything along those lines? What has worked for you? Not imagined results, but real ones. Please tell us about it.
I listen to George Noory every night while I’m driving home from work, and he sometimes interviews a guest who promotes some off-the-wall thing. Like almonds. Some dude on there said that if you eat three almonds every day, you’ll never get cancer. So, I made a mental note to start eating almonds, and (of course) never followed through. This happens every time he has one of those people on his show.
Do you take any kind of supplements, or participate in an almond regimen, or anything like that? I’d like to know about it. Use the comments link below.
Also: What things do you wish you didn’t know?
And I know this one’s a little brief, but I forgot to set the alarm last night. I was clear-cutting timber until almost noon today. Crazy.
But I’ll give it another shot tomorrow.
Have a great day, my friends!
