Introducing My Weird Side (If you haven’t met her already!)

About a month ago, I was enjoying a delicious tootsie pop at work when I noticed that I had gotten a wrapper with the Indian shooting the star! I don’t know if any of you remember collecting these as a child, but I immediately got excited. Now, maybe it was the 2pm sugar rush or just one of my punchy moods, but either way, I decided to send it in with a little note in hopes of receiving my free tootsie pop in the mail.

My note said something like this…

“I found the indian shooting the star! Can’t wait to receive my free tootsie pop in the mail! PS: It took me 672 licks to get to the center of my tootsie pop.”

I chuckled a little, shoved my post-it note letter and wrapper in an envelope, dropped it in the mail and forgot about it. That is until last night, when I received two packages from Tootsie Roll Industries. My first reaction to the large manilla envelope was, “What the…” and then I burst into laughter as I remembered my weird and random fan mail.

Here’s what they sent me…

Okay, so maybe I only made it three licks before biting the dang thing in half. But still, my award makes me so happy.

“We truly don’t know why or where this rumor started.”

 

Not gonna lie... I didn't read past the title! But, in case you care. I just wanted another tootsie.

Symptoms

I have not been sleeping very well. My lower back has been achy and I have just been feeling really uncomfortable. I’ve been starting to sleep on my side because I haven’t been able to get comfortable on my back, but even this is causing me issues. They say you should lay on your right side, but that makes it so my back is to my husband, which I don’t like. But, when I’ve tried to sleep on my left side, without fail, I wake up with a tingling and totally dead arm! Any suggestions? I want to go back to my zombie sleeps.

  1. I find if I am sleeping on my side (either one) something falls asleep…my legs, my arms, my butt even…I have heard it’s common since there is so much extra blood flow going on. I have no advice- I just wake up and try to stretch it out and shake it out until it’s back to normal…and then go to the bathroom. Maybe some sort of pillow so you aren’t rolling on your arm? Couldn’t hurt : )

  2. It’s your left side, not right. But, I would recommend just biting the bullet and getting the pillow. It helped me a ton, and you will be glad when you sleep better. At the very least, try a pillow between your knees when you sleep on your side. If you remind me, I have a memory foam one meant for just that. You can totally have it, especially if it helps.
