Yesterday I was fishing in my purse for something and I noticed that my last cough drop was propped up inside my wallet, revealing the message, "Don't waste a precious minute."
Now, I wouldn't mind so much if that were written on a nice piece of candy or gum. However, it comes across as a little chilling on the wrapper of something that is essentially medicine.
Does my cough drop know something I don't?
If it had more space, would it be saying something like, "Wow, that cough sounds pretty bad. And you've had it for weeks. In fact, this is the last cough drop in the bag. You say you're also using a steroid inhaler, taking codeine cough medicine at night and dosing yourself with prescription allergy pills and nasal spray? Hmm. Well, I don't want to alarm you or anything, but maybe you should take some time to stop and smell the roses. Did you hug your husband today? Call your sister? Pet the cats? I'm just saying..."
Then again, maybe it's suggesting that I spend less time goofing around online. In which case, I suppose I'm done here.
