    No problem, Pig; just remember that it’s still PM somewhere.

    I thought P.M. meant past midnight, and A.M. means another morning.

    PM means when you take the medication, it’s not meant to cover the entire sleep duration. Don’t take it after midnight though, or you’ll be awake all night.

    Is that because I work nights?

    The pharmacist should have told him the PM stood for Pig Medicine.

    The pharmaceutical industry would love to hook you on their products to help you sleep. And any other issue you may have, no matter how minor, there’s probably a pill for that too.

    The following old adage should be sufficient for us all: Blessed is the man who is too busy to worry during the day and too tired to lie awake at night. This would solve many of the problems of today.

    Sometimes I go to sleep watching British news shows. They often talk about the Prime Minister. If they’re still playing after midnight (and that’s more or less my usual bedtime, I’m a night owl and most of the time couldn’t get to bed much earlier than that if I tried) that sort of extends the PM. . . .

    Is Pig on the spectrum? One of our granddaughters is and she often gets hung up on details like this. I don’t find it annoying. She’s a nice kid.

    Would it be such a great shock if we found out there’s NO DIFFERENCE between AM and PM except in the type of food coloring mixed in?

    “I can’t sleep, Doctor. I walk around all night”

    “Oh,you’re a somnambulist”

    “No, I’m a night watchman!”

    Rat … the pharmacist has strongly recommended that you stay away from the house between dusk and dawn.

    As Stephan said in the first treasury, “Pig is the easiest character to write for. He just needs to misunderstand everything he hears, then when it’s explained to him, he needs to misunderstand that too.”

    I was an ER nurse and had this happen. I got a call at 3 a.m. from a person wanting to know if it was too late to take a Tylenol PM.

    The Pharmacist could have said PM stands for Pain Management as an explanation for Pig.

    It really means Post Meridian, but Pig gets confused too easily.
