This is what happens when I take Ambien

Sometimes when I take my Ambien, it makes me do strange things.  If I don't immediately go get in bed and stay there I do silly things in this foggy haze.  Once I rearranged my guest bedroom to try to fit a non-existent bed in there.  A few weeks ago I randomly started painting my bathroom wall (more on that later this week).

Last night I was going to put away my laundry.  When I opened my closet I saw one of the scarves I brought back from Dubai.  I starting thinking "What if I had to wear this everyday?"  Maybe I could wear it for a week just to see what it is like.  Then I started taking pictures to see how I should wear it.

Please forgive my  messy hair and no make up face.  It was bedtime!  But I saw the pictures this morning and it made me laugh:

 I had to  tuck all my hair up in the back so it made it kind of big, but in Dubai some of the women had this big bumps in the back that made them look so elegant, but I couldn't get mine to look like that.  They must have really long hair!

I tried to smile with my eyes like Tyra says to do, but it wasn't working.

I look scary.  Not being able to see a smile or any other facial expressions sucks.

Now I just look scared.

Some women would just cover their mouth.  That's a little better, but I still look scared or something.

I look like a scared 12 year old!  

Now this is how an American girl would wear it.  Much better.

It looks pretty on those Arab women because they have such big mysterious eyes.  Me, not so much.  I think I'll stick to wearing it like an American girl.

I also discovered the site last night and I am apparently going to die on Feb. 27, 2067.  I would be 86 years old.  

Point of this post: When you take an Ambien to go to sleep, go directly to bed, do not pass go, do not collect $200.  Or don't and end up with vague memories of the silly things you did the night before.

Funny entry. I hope that I never have to take Ambien because I don't know of one person who does and doesn't do really silly/crazy things. :)
Have a happy week!
