Evil tea

So this tea really works.

Usually I like the Get Gorgeous, but Whole Foods didn’t have it the other night it so I grabbed Get Some Zzz’s instead for my caffeine-free nighttime fix. I assumed it to be plain herbal tea, but it contains valerian, an herbal sedative.

I told this to MB, who brushed it off. “Herbal,” he said, “equals bullshit.”

I don’t know about that, but I had a mug and was totally sleepy afterwards. I just assumed it was partly psychosomatic, and partly because I’m sensitive to that kind of thing.

MB is about twice my size, so I thought even if it worked, it probably wouldn’t have any effect on him. But the next thing I knew he was totally dropping off.

“This tea is evil,” he mumbled before losing consciousness.

Mmm, evil herbal bullshit tea.


  1. Alright. An herbal date rape drug.

  2. Gotta love it when that happens. I think that requires a little “I told you so”.
