My next labor drug will slow your roll

A beverage company has come out with a new anti-energy drink called "Drank".

The carbonated, grape-flavored beverage is spiked with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips.

The company is marketing its product to the hip-hop community and the relaxed, anti-stress mentality that they promote. Their marketing line is "Slow your roll". However, I think this is totally off the mark, they need to market it to women about to give birth... and here is why....

When I was in labor with Capri I drank a teaspoon of Jagermeister (an old midwifery trick), to help relax me, and progress my labor. Jagermeister contains valerian root, so it is very good at relaxin' a momma. However, it has a black licorice, alcohol taste, that is not so appetizing to a woman in labor, ya hear me? I would much rather have a grape flavored, popsicle tasting drink to "slow my roll", kwim?

So with baby #2, I'm going to have some of this grape stuff in my bag of tricks, oh yeah baby.

That's funny. I don't think I could handle that drink. Although I do need to relax this week.

Where did you find that?? I so don't need that drink, as I can fall asleep anywhere, anytime! But it sounds good!
