Portrait of Excess Butterflies in Stomach & Elsewhere at a Convention

“Butterflies in the stomach is a medical condition characterized by the physical sensation of a “fluttery” or “tickling” (hence butterflies) feeling in the stomach. This sensation can also be an uncontrollable physical sensation related to the body’s fight or flight resonse.”

I had plenty-O last week in Columbus, especially on Friday night when I couldn’t even remember my name (hence the indentifying T) and gave up trying to photograph all the Glitterati because every shot I took looked all OOF and wavy. I even woke up during the night with limb spasms! The hotel room had wireless internet and I tried to find a remedy for Leg Cramps.

Here is what what I found from various sources:

-”Take regular sewing thread and cut into a length long enough to tie around your ankle, but let it be slightly loose. I’m not sure how it works, but the thread will knot up instead of your muscles.”

-”Place a bar of Ivory Soap under the top sheet of your bed at the foot and you will not have leg cramps again. It has the same effect as potassium.”

-”Eat a banana (potassium).”

-”Drink about 1/4 cup dill pickle juice and the cramps are instantly gone. Football teams use this. Drink another shot if needed.”

-”My grandmother was told by my great-great grandmother to take your shoes, turn them upside down and place them under your bed (generally with the toes facing out) It seems odd but works…”

-”Take 1 to 2 Teaspoons of mustard (like you put on a hot dog) when you have a leg cramp.”

Guess which one I did…
