common sense corona

Light ribbons in one eye we fear  
Precede headache pain that's severe
Drug firms clearly bribe
Physicians to prescribe
Migraine meds but I'll imbibe beer


Authors Note: If you are in a safe place (not driving or operating machinery), this home remedy could be better than what the doctor ordered.  I keep a few medicinal bottles ready in the fridge for just such an emergency.  Lime is optional.

The clinical trial: An authentic "migraine" headache is accompanied by blood vessel constriction. There can be 15 to 30 minutes of shimmering lights in one eye followed by a headache from hell.  Having learned that alcohol dilates blood vessels, one day I tried chugging a beer just after the shimmering started.  The lights subsided and there was no headache.  Beer just may be the second best medicine ever created.

    Ha Ha!...Let's just put it this way, I don't get migraines!... Laughter being the BEST medicine, I wish I could take more of that OTHER best medicine but alas, my prescription ran out and I can't find anyone willing to refill it...
