I hope none of you actually get sick this winter. But we’re indoors with a lot of other people and rhinoviruses spread faster than nasty rumors. So why not be prepared? And why not let me help?
These cold-and-flu packages are invariably popular, and probably not just because they save you money. I think a lot of people simply don’t want to keep cold medications on hand because, well, you don’t need them.
Until you do — at which point ayou might feel too miserable to make the trip to the pharmacy. And if you thought this stuff costs a lot at the pharmacy, wait until you price them at a convenience store.
This giveaway includes:
- A bottle of Robitussin Cough + Chest Congestion DM (non-drowsy formula)
- Advil film-coated tablets, for those aches and pains (20-count bottle)
- Walgreens “Soothing Vapors” cough drops, Ice Blue variety (30-count bag)
- Keeping It Real natural lip balm, vanilla flavor
- Korean ginseng teabags (hot liquids are good for you) and a Norman Rockwell mug in which to brew them
- A can of Campbell’s chicken noodle soup (also good for you)
- A copy of “Next,” by Michael Crichton; one of the very few perks of being sick is that you have an excuse to take to your bed, so take a book in with you
Again, I sure hope you don’t need this stuff. But better safe than sniffly. However, plan not to get sick until the last week in October: I’m heading off to the Financial Blogger Conference very early on Tuesday and won’t be back until Oct. 23.
