Dear Neo-Citron:

I’m not a drug taker, but I won’t lie, this cold has hit me hard. I moved past the vitamin C, cold f-x and other assorted herbal remedies tonight, when I found myself in the cold rememdy aisle at the local drug store, buying more or less one of everything.

Little bacteria are having an orgy in my body. I am spewing germs. I am typhoid mary, I assure you.

But you, you seem to be unclear about your role in the cold and flu panopticon. You are an accessory, rather like a hot toddy, and lemon with honey. Oh, sure you waive your warning labels all around, but really, you are comfort and memory, the thing my mother used to give me when I was sick. You are the chicken noodle soup of the medication aisle.

So, waive your warning label all around, I’m taking you with my nyquil and my vicks vapor rub and my zinc lozenges and my dristan nasal spray. I don’t really care what you say, I am going to sleep tonight.
