So a week or so ago I went food shopping with a couple friends. We all loaded up our carts at the Fairway in Red Hook with the this and that etc. By the checkout registers there was a huge display of ‘Fish Oil Omega-3′ capsules. For whatever reason we all wanted the friggin fish oil capsules (even though none of us knew wtf with why– they were only $5.99 so whatever we all bought some).
I’ve heard about Omega-3 Fish Oil blah blah but never really paid attention to the dilly. I eat alot of fish so I’ve never been concerned extra. And I sort of rolled my eyes at the idea of buying this sort of thing because I don’t believe in vitamins or any of that stuff. In the past whenever I’ve bought some multivitamin on St. John’s Ginko or whatever the natural thing of the moment is– it’s always like totally whatever. And later proven to be bullsht. I think 95% of all supplements are unnecessary scams. (I once got a B- on a science test so I do have some experience here…)

Anyway, I put the bottle of these fish oil capsules on my computer table and for a week or so I’ve been taking a few tablets a day just out of boredom and because the capsules look sort of like magical honey or something.
The weird thing is lately– I’ve been feeling weirdly good. I’ve just been kind of energized and I feel sorta sharper in conversation or whatever. Plus, I’ve been running up the stairs more. I didn’t really think much about it– but today I woke up feeling pretty good again and popped one of these things and was like, ‘Wait a sec… Fish oil? Are you actually not doing nothing?’
I realize it might be total crap and a coincidence or whatever. But for the first time ever in the world of taking some natural whatever for the hell-of-it-ness– I am honestly suspicious about the possibility that these things might actually be doing something good. (Yeah, it is sort of gross to think about ‘fish oil’ as a thing. Kind of brings up the image of smushing some flounder eyeballs or something. But whatever…)
So I don’t know. I’ve been googling around trying to read more about it but Omega-3 definitely hasn’t helped my ADD– because I can’t focus on all the info. It’s all sort of blah blah blah. I’m like what’s the difference anyway what it says–I guess it can’t hurt.
Sure, maybe I’m just in a good mood because the weather has been nice– but I keep looking over at this bottle with a raised eyebrow. I’ll let you know if/when this passing phase passes.
