This stuff is genius.

This week I had that feeling. You know the one. The uh-oh-I-think-I'm-getting-sick-and-I-don't-have-time-for-that-right-now feeling.

I thought about buying some of that medicine I've seen that you're supposed to take right at the beginning of feeling cold symptoms. I talked to three different people, and this is what they said:
Dana (a friend from work): You mean Zycam?
Lora: Are you talking about Mucinex?
Nathan: Uh...I don't know. Echinacea?
Me: No, I'm pretty sure it's called something else.

And it is. It's called Airborne. It's that stuff that you may have seen that was created by a school teacher who was tired of getting sick all the time. I can relate to the teacher part, but not the getting sick part. Excuse me now for the following personal testimony/unpaid endorsement. This stuff is packed with antioxidants, herbs and vitamins to boost your immune system so that you can actually fight a cold. The formula dissolves in water like Alca Seltzer, but tastes a lot more like Blue Sky soda. I bought the pink grapefruit variety, and the Walgreens version, Wal-borne, because this stuff isn't cheap. I did also spring for these Airborne gummy throat lozenges that have a smaller dosage of the formula.

It's FANTASTIC. Every time I have taken my little tonic, I seriously get this boost. The website says it doesn't have caffeine, so I think it must be the blend of natural herbs and all the vitamins. This stuff is insanely magical. I know that I'm not sick right now and I should be because of this stuff. And I, for one, am very happy about that.

No, I'm not talking about speed, Mr. Smarty-McSmart.

ok...so i'm glad you found it...because seriously...it works...and i'm glad that i'm not the only person out there that was so effected by it's amazing-ness...two years ago...after a teacher friend of mine told me about it...she was so excited that i didn't believe her...i thought it must be in her head...

and then i started having that moment that you described...and i did the exact same thing..."what's that stuff called?" i asked everyone i knew...and luckily...i was headed to wal-greens for the normal crap that only makes you feel worse when i saw it on the shelf at the front and abandoned all other items...

and it worked...
and i'm happy that i'm not the only one that knows that...or believes it...

i've taken half of one every morning since then...i don't think i'll ever be sick again.
