All things come in 3? Robitussin, Windex, and Vick’s Vaporub

February 18th, 2008 · No Comments · Humor

I started writing this blog because I was recovering from having emergency surgery to remove my gall bladder the week after Thanksgiving. I continued to blog because four weeks later, I fell down the stairs as I was chasing my sick cat who didn’t want to go to the vet. The cast has been removed but I am still wearing an ace bandage and walking very slowly. I thought my blog entries would slow down as I resumed normal activities. Well apparently the powers that be want me to blog. I now have some viral infection that leaves me walking around with tissues stuffed up my nose, trying to protect myself from cats that follow me around thinking Vick’s Vaporub is tuna oil and praying that the light headed feeling or back breaking coughing doesn’t make me fall down the steps again. Today my friend Nicole took me to the doctor. I am so blessed to have such a good friend. On the way home she told me about a treatment to ease my coughing. It was said that if you smear Vick’s Vaporub on the soles of your feet and put on a pair of socks, it will stop your coughing. This brought to mind Chris Rock’s Robitussin skit or the father in my Big Fat Greek wedding who sprayed Windex on everything, or my mom’s boyfriend who thought Greased Lightening would cure athlete’s foot (NOT a good idea. Does NOT work.) I decided to give it a try, figuring that at the least I was moisturizing my feet. It worked! It definitely helped to relax me and reduced the amount of coughing and I was able to sleep. I am a believer! All hail Vick’s Vaporub!!!! It can’t help me from thinking that one day, one of my nieces or my nephew is going to tell the tale about their crazy Aunt Beeker who tried to cure everything with Vick’s Vaporub.
