Cough Medicine

Friday, 3 September 2004 Leave a comment Go to comments

A recent visit to the chemist in search of cough medicine saw us bringing home a brand of cough medicine we’d never tried before, but had seen in ads on the television. An expectorant was what we were after and found easily enough. We had to admit that we were a bit surprised that the label said it was for “Chesty Coughs”. (When something is described as “chesty”, lungs are not the first thing that pops into my mind.) Even though the wording was strange it seemed to us like it would do the job. Unfortunately we failed to notice that it did not have a flavour listed anywhere obvious. After opening the bottle we quickly discovered that what the bottle describes in little letters on the side as the “original Veno’s flavour” is in fact licorice. Needless to say another visit to the chemist was in order and special care was taken to be sure the medicine in question was a nice kid friendly flavour like cherry. Now if we we could just get this kiddo over her cough, we’d be in good shape.
