Eastern Medicine: Round 2

April 6, 2009 at 9:33 PM 4 comments

Yesterday, my mom took me to see a Chinese witch doctor.

She seemed nice enough, but she pissed me off a little by acting cute in an old-lady way, like it wasn’t the twentieth century and women had to be meek and mellow.

So she took my pulse, looked at my eyes, and said that I haven’t been getting enough sleep. No kidding. You don’t need a Ph. D. to diagnose eye bags. Nor do you need one to tell how tall someone is. Of course, she didn’t provide a solution to that ailment.

After her examination, she started preparing my medicine. It seemed that the standard unit of measurement was in hands. A handful of something, split it into three piles, and then add a little more to make things even. No worries about overdoses. At least at the other place where I got my first round of medicine they used a little scale.

No bug shells. But there are some silk worms in there.

The end result is just about exactly the same as the first time around.

Eastern Medicine: Round 2

I managed to get most of the first bowl down, until I got to the bottom and felt some sort of sludge. I immediately regurgitated all of it.

Turns out, that sludge was honey. My mom tried to give it a spoonful of sugar, but when the honey has the consistency peanut butter, it just makes it worse.

A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine come up...
