Well, I tried to go to work, but they sent me home. Being sick at The Co-op was exactly what you'd expect: everyone was offering me their special little tinctures and potions; the supplements guy was pouring echinacea down my throat, and Coconut Joe was passing around little paper cups full of oregano oil like something out of Jonestown. In the end, Allisyn called around and found someone to cover for me, then came out and told me that I looked like I needed to go back to sleep. I think I'm about to do that. The couch seems to be calling out to me louder than the bed -- maybe I'll put in a movie (why, oh why, did I leave that copy of I [Heart] Huckabees at unixd0rk's house? Oh well).

I prefer the Sambucol Immune System Formula Zinc-Echinacea-Elderberry-C lozenges, myself. Though the only ingredient in there that has ever been shown by any remotely scientific study to do anything is Zinc.

I can't decide if you're trying to be funny and prove my point or not. But point proven: Co-op types can't help but offer suggestions for potions, tinctures, and homeopathic remedies.

That said, I've actually heard some good things about Sambucol, but after having Dan and Joe both pouring foul tasting things down my gullet, I was done with being adventurous for the day.

I was sort of killing two tofurkeys with one stone with my comment. Though if I recommend some potion, take heed because I do it rarely. I don't take vitamins or supplements of any kind because I think 99% of it is premium Grade A bullshit.

I remember being very disappointed that the bottles inside the Sambucol boxes were just regular medicine bottles, and not the funky Jerusalem Pottery bottles that are pictured on the box.

But now caelidh is uttering the word "Sambucol" as well, so next time I'm in the store, I'll check it out.
