Let's take a moment to learn a new N word today.
It's a drug/drink from the way back olden days that a body used when suffering sadness or grief and happy dreams were needed. Heh... "happy dreams".
It is an old name for anti-depressants, frankly. And right now I'm not sure which one is easier to say. Nepenthe? Anti-depressants? Can't we just say "vitamin grins"? no, that sounds like pot...
But there it is. Even our ancestors, those crafty bastards, knew that sometimes being artificially elevated could be a medically necessary thing. Sure, loads of them were stoners. But then again, who's to say that even they weren't just very clumsy with the self-medication? Addiction, it would seem, is as old a friend to humanity as sadness and the need to defeat it.
So there we are. Nepenthe.
A drug that made ya happy.
Better living through chemistry. Huzzah!
