Last year in the midst of the cold and flu season, I was working retail. Alright, alright. I was a cashier at a Wal*Mart Neighborhood Market. One of the grocery store versions of Wal*Mart. And even more so, I was the Liquor Clerk.
And while all of that alcohol around me would have been a great antiseptic for my sore throat and would have helped me fall asleep even with my worst headache and stuffy nose–and quite well too, might I add–I just kept drinking a huge bottle of water filled with Airborne alongside sucking on zinc lozenges like they were going out of style. And if you could get past the funky neon greenish color that my water had turned, well, I guess I was pretty normal.
Even still, I learned how awesome Airborne really was. And what's even cooler is thisthey're giving out right now on their website. It's the kids version of the stuff, so to make it the “hip thing” for the kids, there's no water needed and you pour it right on your tongue. Its like a medicinal Pop Rocks!
And better than that, because it's made for kids, you know it's bound to taste good. Because, well, even though my water was neon green? Let's just say that you had to pair the taste with the color…
