Remembrance of Medicines Past


Oh the joy,
when slightly sick (or not)
I remember the elixirs:
Vick's VapoRub,
Pepto Bismol,
Smith Brother's cough drops,
Noxzema
for sunburn,
Alka Seltzer,
Retinol
for cuts,
AYDS diet candies,
Flintstones vitamins.

I've thought (at weird times) that it would have been 'charming' to have kept the Smith surname and named my two boys Trade and Mark. For better or worse, I'm not sure how many people would even get the joke. Haven't seen that package in a long time.
