I Need A Doll

I couldn't sleep last night, so I took a Tylenol PM.
One pill. (The normal dosage is 2 pills.)
That really wasn't working for me, so I took another one.
After 25 minutes or so I still wasn't sleepy, so I was about to go downstairs and make a cocktail.
But I didn't--for a very important reason:

It's all because of Valley of the Dolls.
In my mind, I kept seeing Patty Duke shoving a fistfull of pills in her mouth and washing them down with a bottle of scotch.

    "Booze makes 'em work faster."
If I start to make a habit of it, the next thing I know I'll be alone late at night in a deserted alley, crawling along the pavement and screaming my own name.

And nobody wants that.
