I have a cold! Damn it! I really can't afford to get sick right now, so I have been using Zicam. It says that it is "mint flavored", but that is a lie. I think it would be more accurate to say that it is "ass flavored" because that is what I imagine ass tasting like. Bleah!

But it does work, and I guess people might not want to try it if it said "ass flavored" on the label. Well, maybe, if they knew that it would get rid of their cold. It'd be a bit embarrassing at the register though.

Sylvana -I have a "cure " on good authority from "Joan. "

Joan has told me on many occasions she has sung away the worst of dreaded colds: So start humming some suitable scottish folk songs that have a happy refrain, to wash that cold right out of your head.

So long as its not the Wisconsin blues !!Oh I almost forgot to mention who Joan is .....Joan Sutherland.!!

That's a tough cal Syl, suffer a head cold or suck on ass flavored lozenges. I might have to go with the head cold.

I have a cold too and it's all my fault. My coworker has been sick for the past two weeks. We share a phone. He talks on it for 8 hours straight during his shift (all personal calls, of course!) and I haven't been Lysoling the phone after he leaves. Now I'm paying the price. What's in Zicam? I don't usually take medecines. I'm more of the grin and bear it type.

Lindsay, I tried humming. It made my head hurt.

DrMax, you're supposed to take it at the fist sign of a cold, but when you first get a cold you are thinking it isn't bad enough yet to suffer the taste of ass in your mouth.

OldRoses, it has zinc in it. I have tried the zinc lozenges before and thought they tasted aweful too - so I think the nasty taste comes from the zinc.

When I get colds, I get them VERY BAD!! They will almost always go right to my lungs and turn even more nasty if I don't do something about them right away.

You know, I don't even remember being around anyone that had a cold!
