Cough Drop Manufacturers Really Suck, Part II

Don't wait to get started.

It’s bad enough to be sick during summer, but to have cough drop manufacturers kicking you when you’re down is just plain mean. Last year, I discovered that cough drop companies think we’re morons.  Hall’s now has a campaign where they offer “a pep talk in every drop!”  Um, I feel like crap.  I can’t taste anything and am coughing so hard I’ve pulled a muscle in my chest.  My nose is raw from blowing it and I have zero appetite because I have a mucus pool forming in my stomach.  (Gross, I know.)  I’ve been sick for more than two weeks.  Gimme a break.  So when I read your “inspirational saying” that I should “inspire envy” … well, excuse me while I punch you in the throat.
