My nose is really raw so I thought I'd dig into my sad little box o' medical supplies and see if I had any Vicks or neosporin or something to put on it.

Sad sad sad... It's filled with bubble packs of capsules and tablets - some of which are labeled.. but not all. A lot are for colds. There are a handful of little pink caplets wrapped in a piece of paper with my handwriting on it labeled 'anti-histamine'. They aren't dated. Of the ones that are dated the most recent date I could find was 2007. There were a couple of packets of these mentholated capsules that you drop into a cup of hot water and just breathe over. I got them in New Zealand. I was last in New Zealand in 1995.

I think it may be time to dump all that shit into a bag and take it to the pharmacy's 'dump your old drugs here' bucket.

I did find the Vicks - expiration date of June 02, in the bathroom drawer. I'm using it anyway. Be on the lookout for the headline:

Expired Vapor Rub kills Web Executive
but her nose looked great!

(Back in the 70's and 80's in upstate NY, whenever an IBMer died, newspapers always called them 'executive' in their obit. They could have been in charge of the toilets, but when they left this earth it was as an IBM Executive.)
