Why we should all read directions

Ok so you all know Airborne right? The health product that you take before you fly or whenever to keep you from getting sick? Well I'm using it for the first time and I really like it. I was on the phone with my sister today and asked her if she'd ever used it. She tells me they just bought some and she could only stand it for a few bites. Um....bites? She said she thought the tablets were awfully big and could not see the appeal of the product as she's standing in her kitchen foaming and popping at the mouth. Then she thought maybe she should read the directions and sure enough...you don't eat them! You pop them in water and drink it! The ironic thing was, when I asked her about Airborne I was about to tell her the story I heard while watching Ellen. Apparently one of her viewers also ate the tablet, but while waiting to board a plane. She chewed the whole thing and was foaming all over the place. Then she drank some orange juice since it tasted so bad, but that made the foaming worse. And the kicker was they let her on the plane no questions asked! Here I thought I was about to relate a story about a one in a million occurance...ha! I was laughing about that all day!

Oh gawd, this is cracking me up! I have a cold and I've been taking Airborne and can't believe anyone would actually eat those tablets! UGH! So funny! Okay, this is gross but I had a friend back in the 70's when new types of tampons started being introduced who complained that the new Gentle Glide tampons "don't seem to absorb much through that little slit at the tip". Yep, you guessed it....
