Overheard in the lunch room

“What is it?”
“It’s an herbal mixture made up by a school teacher who got tired of being sick all the time.”

And yes, that was the full weight of the explanation.

    If this gives you a clue, mom and dad swear by it taking it before flights!

  4. amykins says:

    of to quote them, “It’s the BEST!”

  5. Lee says:

    I pitched my product idea called “Placebo” to John, Tami, Bean and mom very hard and they showed no interest.

    I just found out what is in Airborne.

    A lot of vitamin A, C, E, and manganese. A little magnesium and zinc. And honeysuckle branches, forsythia branches, Schizonepeta, Ginger, Chinese Vitex,Isatis Root, and Echinacea.

    Honeysuckle (latin name: Lonicera)?? Forsythia????????!!!

    It might as well have maple and elm branches in it. “The mighty elm has been recognized for centuries by healers for it’s healing and restorative powers!”

    And these sell for $0.70 per pill in packs of 10.
