Epidurals & coconut cream pie

Nuff said. Oh, and don't bother with sedation. It'll just make you slow in getting to the pie. Try a light sleep aid instead, like Ambien, one that won't interfere with your midnight dash -- okay, shamble -- to the kitchen.

Oh, and be sure to leave the fridge door open while consuming same with knife -- it counteracts the flushing brought on by the steroid.

Happy painless dreams.

Tomorrow you'll see the poem about the epidural team. All pet owners, it turned out.
