I decided to read this quite literally

splitting seams

Plainglazed, I love the way your writing flows. Great riddle.

OK! a really great answer. Hadnt thought of that but like the way it fits. Your decision to "read this quite literally" is a very good one. And thanks for the compliment.

By the way, fabulous job on this riddle, PG!

antidepressants

Sorry, not it, but get your drift and not stupid. Will say the device is a physical object. And thanks, you're very kind.

Absolutely no apologies necessary. None of those are really close at all but, of the three, would have to say the last one mentioned is the closest.

no sorry, not either. my last response to you was regarding one of the qualities of the "closest" of your last three and my guess as to how that came to you from the riddle. always hesitant to say too much for fear that it might mislead. hope this is not the case.

Dont think these have been guessed so you can guess they're not it. Sorry please keep at it.

Thanks to you I have let this one go. Have found renewed cofidence from really inciteful guesses. Still think this one's a little oblique but there's definitely one good answer y'all are going to get. Trying different definitions of some of the key words (nouns) like you did above and some others have, along with Tiger's literal approach may be helpful.

pollen...?

the more I say, the more I mislead. Not taking that advice: When I said before that one of your three guesses was closest, it still had nothing to do with the answer. That guess just shares a quality that the answer does. Pollen is the same way but, ironically, a different quality of the answer I hoped to convey. So I think you're gettin some of the meaning of the answer, it just has nothing to do with honey or pollen. Thouroughly confused?

Ok, I am going to try and switch brain gears here. I am not just guessing randomly, these make sense to me - whether they are right or wrong.

dreams from sleeping pills (or any medication, I suppose)

Already guessed? Can't remember anymore.

And yes, work does = ugghh! Until your supervisor makes your Friday by telling you (and everyone) that we get to leave at 4 today!!! And get paid until 5. Oh yes.

Not already guessed and hate to be so negative, nope. At least you got a nice boss, now that's a positive.

I don't feel like it fits every line, so I hate to even guess. But it could fit, if it were stretched, so I will give it a shot.

Big stretch...
