Lunches with Lisa

Tuesday, March 2, 2010



Lisa and I were sitting at lunch and I was complaining that my head was all stuffed up from my cold. I'm irrationally bothered by not being able to breathe through my nose so I kept trying to blow it to clear my head.

"Why don't you try a nasal spray like Afrin or something?", Lisa suggested.

"No, I've heard that you can get addicted to those things. I don't even want to get started," I replied.

Lisa shook her head and said in her most authoritative tone, "No, you won't get addicted. Gosh, I've been using one for about 15 years now."

  3. ...."No you won't get addicted. Gosh, I've been using one for about 15 years now"....

    Yeah, that's what father use to say, but he had an Afrin bottle in the car, on his bedstand, in his bathroom, and his office. But no...he wasn't addicted.

    HA!

  4. I have had that same cold for a few weeks and finally resorted to a nasal spray. Works great. I can't imagine getting addicted though--it's kind of gross!

  10. So many things to get addicted to. Why waste a perfectly good addiction to something up your nose. Turtles, chocolate covered raisins, Girl Scout thin mint cookies.

  12. Sudafed, bay-bee. Unless you've got high blood pressure, then no.

    I loooove my sudafed. (the one behind the counter, where you have to show your license, give blood and tell them what you ate for breakfast to get it)...but it really works! I have horrible allergies.

    The great side effect? It kills your appetite.
