Two adjacent rooms in the My Odd Sock corporate offices were closed earlier today because of a major spill involving Baclofen tablets.

 

Baclofen is an oral prescription medication used to ease muscle spasticity.

According to My Odd Sock, company president and witness to the pharmaceutical carnage, pills were scattered everywhere throughout a two room area.

The rooms were temporarily closed, hampering traffic through a busy kitchen intersection.

 

 

Odd Sock attributed the spill to multiple sclerosis riddled “fumble-fingers.”  “Fumble fingers” is a term describing a numb, sluggish feeling in extremities like the hands & feet.  Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, is the accused perpetrator and major kingpin behind the cause of “fumble fingers.”

 

“I dropped a nearly full bottle of Baclofen tablets.  The bottle hit the top of the microwave and began spinning wildly.  It continued its descent, hitting the cabinet before falling to a hard tile floor,” Sock said.

“It was an explosion of pills,” he continued.  “Pills were bouncing and rolling–I’m lucky I wasn’t hit by Baclofen shrapnel.  I just covered my eyes and hoped to survive,” he added.

A visibly shaken My Odd Sock then detailed how he sent out an urgent “SOS” message using a primitive texting device.

Rescue squads were quick to respond to the tube socks’ plea for help. 

Even the local Calvary division was alerted for assistance.

Luckily, damage was minimal and only one Baclofen pill suffered a minor fracture.

The wounded pill was placed in a pill box and later swallowed by a noticeably stiff My Odd Sock.

Crews cleaned up the mess and traffic was restored.  My Odd Sock then enjoyed a delayed breakfast of Frosted Flakes and a glass of orange juice.

  1. I’m glad my non-speckledbrain comrades help fill my weekly battle plan, or I also would be ducking for cover. 😐

Making it official.
