I Hab a Cold Id By Dose

And a cough in my chest.

And I'm tired and a little achy.

I saw this sign yesterday in a museum and couldn't resist a pic.


Where is my medicinal grade heroin? Hmm? I need some dang relief!

I guess the sign in the museum is from around the same time period that big C Coke still contained little c coke.
Which must've been kind of like a super-serious energy drink. Red Bull gives you wings? This stuff'll take you to the moon. And you'll never stop talking about it...

So perhaps, a hundred odd years ago, faced with a cold similar to mine, a doctor might prescribe heroin for my cough and plenty of liquids. Like maybe Coke.

Now I'm just lying here all achy and slow-headed and drinking water and popping Vitamin C.

Progress sucks.

You could always try ear-candling, a sudsy high colonic, and some of those toxin-sucking foot pads.

Get well!

Oh, you poor thing. Progress does bite the big one, doesn't it? Hope you feel better soon, even though your treatment is seriously lacking in narcotics.

I remember seeing old advertisements in some of my textbooks for syrups people used to give children when they were teething. The main active ingredient? Opium. Sweet dreams, kiddies.

And if Savant's advice doesn't work, we can always leech you.

Ah such sage and helpful advise from Savant and Alex!!
I hope you feel better, and weren't the originals of most things better.......pass the cough suppressant dear, don't be greedy!

I'm all for the leaching. That might be a good idea. I hate head colds. They blow gigantic snot boogers. Literally...I hope you feel better soon!
