I recommended to my sister a prescription strength vitamin I take. Since we both have the threat of osteoporosis in our genetic recipe (with just a dash of crazy sprinkled in), I thought she would benefit from it too. It has extra stuff for bone loss and some amino acid for mood enhancement. One of the differences I noticed after taking it was a sense of clear-headedness. She had her doctor write her a script and started taking it too.
Then she called me and asked, “Do you dream weird with this stuff?” I didn’t want to tell her beforehand for fear she’d think I was a little touched, but yes, I had noticed my dreams were a bit more vivid than before. She experienced it too. We can’t decide if we’re sleeping more soundly because of the vitamins, or if the amino acid content is a little light on “amino” and a little heavy on the “acid.”
For example, Monday night I dreamt that Barack Obama chose Mike Huckabee as his running mate. No joke. I did have some bizarre dreams before, but this stuff keeps causing me to dream really strangely almost every night. But I don’t mind. My first idea for a novel came from a vision I had right as I was about to go to sleep. If I keep taking the Wonder Vitamin, I’ll undoubtedly start writing paranormal, sci-fi and quite possibly, political satire.
