When you find yourself in a sugar coma, don’t panic. You are probably not alone. Millions of people take a bite out of a Snickers bar thinking it’s a pear… Those were the thoughts going through my mind when I saw my hand, independent from the rest of my body, reach over for m and m’s… and grab some. When my brain caught up with them, the mouth had already swallowed.
Less than than five minutes later, my head was right on track to a giant migraine. It’s almost like an orgasm – you know it’s coming and the best you can do is relax and enjoy. Except the enjoyment part is the rub with a migraine.
I tried to compensate with a rabbit’s daily ratio of broccoli and carrots.
But it was too late. My mind had gone into a stupor, the kind where you know where you might as well take the rest of the day off because everything else “will waste your time and annoy the pig.”
However, I did discover an interesting benefit. Because you brain muscle is so sore you can’t flex it, you relax and let things flow, which in my case, resulted in 2,000 words of copy for work. Just don’t drive… or operate heavy machinery.
