Narcotic~any of a class of substances that blunt the senses, as opium, morphine, belladonna, and alcohol, that in large quantities produce euphoria, stupor, or coma, that when used constantly can cause habituation or addiction, and that are used in medicine to relieve pain, cause sedation, and induce sleep.

Neurotic~Informal A person prone to excessive anxiety and emotional upset.

Today a student told me I was a “narcotic.”Ā  He wasn’t angry when he said it so I guess it wasn’t an insult.Ā  Maybe he meant I was a “neurotic.”Ā  Hmmm, I don’t know which one I’d rather be!

    He said: Mom can you help me rememberize this poem?

    Not a real word – but it sure fit.

    Boy do I miss them being little and cute
