EL-tryptophan



So this last week my friend Jason and I made turkey burgers at work on the foreman grill (yes, I love my job!). But about an hour after lunch I was sorry I did, the big Thanksgiving turkey sleep started in. Then I started thinking, "I hate l-tryptophan, or is it tryptophan?" So when I got home I checked it out, it's l-tryptophan, and I thought it would cool to draw a picture of "EL-tryptophan"! So here he is, the guy with the mustache, putting me to sleep after my turkey burger. He could also be seen as keeping this child "safe" in a cloud of unconcious fairy dust, although how safe is he with that glove pointing at him!?

Oddly enough, they do bottle tryptophan! It's like an alternative sleep aid to pills and whatnot. Strange and beautiful things on the internet!
