The Pill and the Cold

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Do I take the blue pill or the white one? That may simple at first, but at the time I had a head cold. My eyes were not fully focusing and the brain a bit slow in solving logic.

I had a few pills left over from the a box of cold medicine – lower box in the pic-, just the blue pills meant for nighttime use. So I picked up a package of Tylenol daytime/nighttime pills from the drugstore.

The older package used light for daytime and blue for night. Tylenol used blue for daytime and light for nighttime. Reversed. Tylenol also put the white nighttime pill on a blue background. I made a mistake and took a white pill for daytime. My wife thought I was being lazy for not wanting to go to the mall on a Saturday with our two grandsons. Honestly, I was really tired – that is my official excuse (even though I don’t like going to the mall at anytime, let alone a Saturday).

All is better now. I gave up on the pills and had a double shot of whiskey instead. Cold germs died under the assault of the alcohol. There wasn’t any confusion on the colour  either. In fact I feel well enough to go to the mall, if my wife still wants my company.
