AKA Sleeper

How does Nyquil® work? How does it fix both stuffy and runny noses? Is there an ideal consistency for mucous that it regulates you out to? How does it know what my ideal consistency is? Why does it have to taste so bad? I bet it would be better for me if it tasted good, because I would rinse out the little cup and drink the rinsings, the way I do with Triaminic®, and sort of like that horrible commercial with the woman who drinks salsa-water. Water is good for you! Why does the bottle tell me to take 2 tablespoons but none of the little medicine cups in our bathroom (including the one that came with the Nyquil®) have markings for tablespoons - just teaspoons and milliliters? Don't they know I'm sick and when I'm sick, I don't want to do math? Or any other time, for that matter?

Oh jeez, I think it's kicking in, isn't it? Do I seem drowsy and excitable to you? Yip! Yip! Yip! Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

It also says that 2 tablespoons is equal to 30 mL, which is marked. I have been drinking the rinsings, just because I feel awful and therefore I am willing to drink the nasty stuff to make myself feel better.

I might have made some cherry-flavored Triaminic Softchews at work today.

eww, I hate that commercial too with the salsa drinking woman--who does that?

Thankfully, I have never seen the salsa-drinking commercial.

I do not partake in The NyQuil. However, The DayQuil and I are good friends. Goooood friends.

Yay for shameless self-promoting links!
