Mom's Secret Medicine
...well, it won't be a secret much longer, eh? For the longest time my medicine cabinet has contained the usual stuff: bandages, antibiotic cream, bubble tickle (peroxide ... ), headache and allergy medicine ... and a small bottle of hooch. No specific type ... but rather a high proof number. A bottle lasts FOREVER (really:). My youngin's were given this special medicine at the first sign of a tickle in their throats. Straight up .. in a medicine cup to gargle .. then swallowed .. of course I'd make them eat breakfast soon afterward so they wouldn't have 'medicine breath' at school or church;) Today was my turn. Some members of my family have been spreading their love (germs) a little too freely in the form of a mild cold. And ... my throat started feeling all tickly this morning. It was time to unlock the medicine box and take a little nip (I mean sip). Three hours have passed ... and the tickle is gone PTL!
Update: It's now Saturday morning ... still no tickle ... everyone else is sick. It took three doses of my special medicine throughout the day;) ... and plenty of rest. I'm just a saying .....
